  1. Loree!! breathtaking photos and prose! Wonderfully inspiring..thankyou for your magic!

  2. That "gentle lapping of the water" would be so pleasant listen to and see. Glad you are enjoying it, Loree!

  3. I so becomes centered for me everytime I go out in the woods or on the water! That is why I love going out and capturing nature with my lens.

  4. lovely post and beautiful pictures. You're so right, I need to do more of this.

  5. Sometimes, reading a wonderful post like yours relaxing me before I have to get out in the hustle bustle of the evening.

    Beautiful photos, Loree!

  6. you are so right, Loree. maybe it's also good to change 'sometimes' to 'most of the time'.

    have a wonderful day!


  7. Beautiful pictures!
    Very inspiring too.

  8. Wonderful pictures. They're truly relaxing. What you said is so true. We rush around far too much. Taking time to just breathe can enlighten us no end.

  9. The Italians say, "Dolce far niente!" Which means "The pleasure of idleness!"

  10. Hi Loree! Could you please send me an email with your mailing address so that I can try to get my butt in gear and get your prize from my giveaway. Thanks so much, hope you had a great weekend!

  11. I envy you. We do not have lakes like that in Cyprus. I miss the ones from the UK. Gorgeous pictures that made me feel calm and serene. Enjoy your summer, i bet you are as hot as me at the moment :)
