Whenever I feel like getting my fill of beauty
I go down to the lake
Let's pull back from the swan and take in our surroundings
the pure April sky
the fascinating reflections and ripples
Look, the train is just passing
and the water reflections have taken on a pale green hue
from the vineyards above
We follow the lake's edge to breathe it all in
We pass the port with a few sailing boats
and take in the mountains from the water's edge
another swan sails by in shallow waters
Peering through the trees to the end of the lake
A broader view before turning round to walk back again
The view changes and so do the tones and colours
going towards the sun which makes the view paler and dreamy.
It is fortunate indeed to live only 15 minutes by car away from all these lovely scenes.
The different shades and intensity of the blues are forever changing
according to the natural lighting and which way my camera is facing and to my camera settings
The variations in hues are all natural and not due to editing.
I mention this because I have been asked in the past!
