Hi Amelia Another shot that could have been taken in The Scottish Highlands I like this one it for my Favs Regards Alan :))
Thank you Alan, especially for the Y*. It is indeed very like Scotland. This lake never sees the light of day in the winter, and with the temperatures as they are at the moment, I suspect it will soon freeze over!
Thanks a lot dear Billy - 10, 000 years ago this lake used to be part of a larger lake behind it. The retreat of the glaciers brought down huge boulders, and formed a massive terminal moraine barrier. It is supposedly the largest rock fall in Europe :))
Wonderful picture!! Greetings from Greece. Lydia
All of these new images are wonderful, Amelia, but this one appeals to me the most - so restful. Y*, and thanks for the geological information above :O)
I see a keyhole in the water :)
Thank you Lydia, it's so nice to see you here in Norway! I am so pleased that you like the dark valleys of Norway :)))
Dear Suzi, thank you so much for your compliment and of course the Y*. I have tried so many times to get a decent photo of the other side of this glacial moraine, including today, but I have never been happy with my efforts. One day I may get it right :))))
The keyhole is my escape route back to Copenhagen dear Nick - I may need a quick sharp exit in case M is on my tail again :)))
I had a sneaking feeling that it could be, but mums the word ;)
Good morning Amelia! How are you doing today?
I like this photo of yours! the light is so mysterious and all is so neat and perfect that it looks as if it was created to be photographed! So it became a beautiful photo!
Friendly greetings from RIA
I'm fine dear Ria. The God of glaciers probably thought that this day would come along 10,000 years later, and created this glacial moraine to trap the lake and form a wonderful scene :))
I have travelled along this road several times and never seen it look so good, thank you for your lovely compliment my friend :))
What a wonderful shot Amelia. Minimum colours and really very close to black and white. So well captured.
Best wishes uni*
Amelia mysterious picture, very special shot, well done.
Thank you uni*, you have described so perfectly how it felt in this valley, which no sun reaches at this time of the year :))
Warm greetings, Amelia
Dear Jac, behind this lake there is a huge scree rockfall, supposedly one of the largest in Europe, and dating back to the retreat of the glaciers. Even in the height of summer it can be quite dark. You are right my friend, it is indeed mysterious :))
Amelia Royan I'scared by darkness but this one is so very consolingly compensated by the light blue of eternity ~ love it, Y*. Hugs from Maja
Hello Maja, what a lovely description - thank you my friend, and many thanks too for the Y*. I'm pleased you liked this dark place :))
Hugs from Amelia
This is a special photo in every sense. It brings a peace and harmony.
I am so sorry to have missed your comments here dear Tonia and Slobaserb. I am really very happy that you liked this photo :))
Greetings to you both, Amelia
