Blue Lake


First, a big thank you to all my lovely readers who made so many wonderful comments on my previous post, "Radiance." It's so nice to see how you really take the time to observe my photos and reflect on my poetry. And you tell me how it makes you feel. This is what I love most about art, whether it be poetry, photography, creative writing, or painting--that it makes us ponder, wonder, connect, and evokes emotions in us.


I spent a lovely afternoon at Rockefeller State Park Preserve, only a few miles away from where I live in Pleasantville, New York. There is a beautiful lake with walking trails all around it. I wanted to capture the blueness of the lake and some of its inhabitants, happily swimming by. It's truly a peaceful and joyful place to visit any season.


What a perfect spot he found! I wonder what he's looking at?


It's still a little chilly, but that didn't stop me from walking all the way around the lake.


I didn't jog though! But this lovely couple ran past me with their cute dogs.


A sunset after another beautiful day. Happy Spring!

    S'intégrer dans la nature
    Rejoidre l'autre rive

    Dans les bois

    Respirer
    Se sentir vivre

    Découvrir et aprécier chaque jour
    Les beautés que la nature nous offre

  23. C'est intéressant de décrire simplement la vie comme elle se passe et surtout lorsque l'on a les yeux grands ouverts et attentifs au spectacle qu'elle donne dans la nature. Cela fait du bien à lire et, comme on dit, ici, le bonheur n'a pas de prix. Il est bon à prendre quand il passe.
    Bravo pour la qualité de tes photos.
    Amicalement,

    Roger
