Qiandao Lake, China, June 28, 2007—Fish leap out water as fishermen drag the net on the banks of Qiandao Lake in east China's Zhejiang Province.

The man-made Qiandao Hu (Thousand Islets Lake) was formed after the completion of the Xin'an River Waterpower Plant in 1959. The lake, which covers 580 square kilometers (223 square miles) has 1,078 islets.

Qiandao Hu is China's biggest national park, and an important tourist attraction in Zhejiang.
