“A normal lake is knowable. A Great Lake can hold all the mysteries of an ocean, and then some.”
― The Death and Life of the Great Lakes
“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
“A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable.” ― William Wordsworth
We’ve moved from the Cleveland area to the Chicago area and are now far from the Great Lakes in Arizona. The Great Lakes are truly great and wonderful. We miss them.
Not much fresh water just lying around in Arizona. 😉 I would sorely miss that refreshing sight, too!
Sorry, I meant to add “lovely shots.” 🙂
Beautiful lake! Great pictures.
Thanks, Ana. There is a season just after snow melt and before the water is warm enough for algae to bloom that the water is crystal clear and you can see sunken ships from the surface. It’s a lake with many mysteries.
I remember my husband and I took a huge ferry from one side to the other and I was totally stunned on how ocean-like it was. What a gorgeous work of nature’s art. Thanks for the fond memory and beautiful images Priscilla
I’ve never taken that ferry trip, but I’ve imagined it. Thanks, Tina!
Very lovely photos 🙂
Thank you so much!
Beautiful and diverse.
Yes, it’s a special place. Thanks for your visit!
I always love to be beside water whether it be sea, lake, river or canal.. I love the one of the children having fun
The sparkles, the moods…water is so very interesting, always.
The photos are gorgeous, thank you for posting them.
I’m glad you enjoyed them! My pleasure.
