We are walking, climbing and running down the mountainside and suddenly the lake is there. Indescribably beautiful.
We are silent for a moment. The moment must be kept, never forgotten.
Mountain lakes are wondrous. A reflection of sky and mountain.
A raven watch every step we take. The only sound is the cry of the bird while it is moving uneasily on a branch. Life is here and now.

Truth! It seems that all mountain lakes are hidden until the last moment when they are instantly revealed in all their glory. Living in a really dry place, seeing water in the mountains is always magical and always appreciated.
Thank you for your lovely description of delight when when a mountain lake reveals itself 💕💕
All the best,
Such a very peaceful image.
Thanks a lot for your comment!!
All the best,
Lovely paintings, Hanna. And even though it has been (too) long since I have hiked to a mountain lake, I can relate to your words. It is always special to get to a mountain lake.
Thank you so much, Tanja. I haven’t been around a mountain lake in US. My only experience is Norway and Austria.
Norway has a lot of blue pearls on a row. They always cherish my heart when I think of them 💕
I wish we have had fishing poles with us 😊 Tafjordfjella
Tafjordfjella is gorgeous. You will have to go back and take fishing poles along. 🙂
The last painting looks like something out of a fantasy novel. Mountains and lakes and the mirror reflection they create are magical indeed.
Thanks a lot, Ab. I find mountain lakes absolutely amazing 💕😊
I love the water
That’s good for a start! 😊😊
Silence, then the cry of the raven… I like the position of the human spirit in these images!
Quietness to explore nature…
Thanks a lot!
