Crescent Lake, China

An oasis in the middle of the desert in Gansu, this lake truly looks like a cut and paste job. Over the years the water levels in the lake have declined, slowly being taken by the desert. Luckily the Chinese government have seen the tourism the lake generates and are slowly restoring it to it’s original water levels.
