Photo my world! - by Deb

'A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature' - Henry David Thoreau

This is a lake i visit often: tranquil, magic upon sunset, each day a different mood portrayed and a different scene painted on my mind's eye. Its an incredible place. Wherever we roam, even when it appears to be pristine wilderness, if one looks carefully the taint of human influence on the rest of the natural world comes into view (..look closely). Our influence is global and no corner of the earth is untouched. Together we hold immense capacity to realise a sustainable world, for we are human, and being human is an amazing thing to be. If only we could all cooperate once in a while?

Lovely quote, and so fitting for your photo. What a beautiful corner of the world you've found! How lucky to have your lake as a regular part of your life. You're right about our influence, it's strongly evident over here, I guess because there are so many people living in such a small space. Thanks for sharing deb x
