Wow! This is such a beautiful spot. I can see myself here following along the water's edge....

Jane said...

It must have been quite breezy when you took this shot, there are so many tiny ripples on the water which you captured perfectly and which create such wonderful reflections. Lovely.

In Japanese, we have the phrase of similar meaning "ichigo ichie." Treasure every meeting (with people, with nature) as if it were the first and the last one. We can’t experience the exactly same thing.

I like this photo. I feel my fatigue being washed away. Thank you, Karen.

Wow Karen very nice. I used to camp at Lake of Two Rivers when I was a teenager. Algonquin changed my life.

What a beautiful capture Karen, looks like a very peacyful place to go to.

About our water, the water system here in Weirton had a weeklong problem with the piping. It was horrible.

What a beautiful picture! It looks like it is a warm and sunny day, and that jumping in the water to splash and play is the invitation.

Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello!
