Heavy clouds over Lake Kawaguchi, Yamanashi, Japan

Saiful Muluk is a mountainous lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley, near the town of Naran. It is in the north east of Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan and feeds water to Kunhar river. At an elevation of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above sea level, it is well above the tree line, and is one of the highest lakes in Pakistan.Malika Parbat, the highest peak in the valley is near the lake.Saiful Muluk was formed by glacial moraines that blocked the water of the stream passing through the valley.

I just love it when tall grass sticks out of smoothed water ... this was a lovely peaceful spot in Yosemite that I found and had all to myself. Ms. Krach was eating lunch back the roadside while I hiked down to this pond in the woods.

please view on black - thank you

Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada. It is the largest of Yoho's 61 lakes and ponds.

The first European to set sight on Emerald Lake was guide Tom Wilson, who stumbled upon it by accident in 1882. A string of his horses had gotten away, and it was while tracking them that he first entered the valley. The lake had an impression on even the most seasoned of explorers: "For a few moments I sat on my horse and enjoyed the rare, peaceful beauty of the scene." It was Wilson who gave the lake its name because of its remarkable colour, caused by fine particles of glacial sediment, also referred to as rock flour, suspended in the water.

Convict Lake is a lake in the Sherwin Range of the Sierra Nevada in California, USA. It is known for its fishing and the dramatic mountains (including Mount Morrison) that surround the lake. Its surface lies at an elevation of 7,850 ft. (2,393 m).

 

The lake was named after an incident on September 23, 1871, where a group of convicts escaped from prison in Carson City. A posse, from Benton, led by Deputy Sheriff George Hightower, encountered the convicts near the head of what is now Convict Creek. Posse member Robert Morrison, a Benton merchant and Wells Fargo Agent, was killed in the encounter, and Mount Morrison was named after him.

Blue lake

 

The Gaatkenplas in pure calmess.

Just sweet blue water , reflections and clouds.

The , man made, Gaatkensplas is a lake in South-Holland , the Netherlands.

In the middle of this picture , where the lake is rather deep, they've found archaeological remains from a late bronze age culture, in dutch called the Klokbekercultuur.

The remains are well taken care of, for later, when archaeological research is even better developed, and when there is enough money for a good research. (once in the far, far future...)

 

Last evenings view exposing the lack of snow with grass showing. A few weeks back there was four to five inches of snow covering the grass and lake.

Kidd Lake is along the highway to Princeton from Merritt.. about halfway. It had fish in it up to 16 lbs. Hard to catch.

The southern part of the lake (see picture) may have dried out in the meantime, or has only water in the spring.

Here is another photograph from one of the most enjoyable afternoons of my entire two week trip in the Canadian Rockies… paddling a canoe around Emerald Lake… the “jewel” of the Yoho National Park!

 

Although I immediately recognized the appeal of this particular composition when I paddled past it… unfortunately the sun was behind a dark cloud at that moment… which meant that the light just wasn’t doing it any justice. So I paddled backwards and forwards (and sideways) until I found the sweetest spot… and then I sat and waited for ten minutes (or thereabouts) for that pesky cloud to move away.

 

This is what I saw when the sun finally did come out again… what a magic moment it was!!

Upper Tipsoo Lake

Mount Rainier National Park, Washington

 

The clouds constantly moving around Tipsoo Lake and we kept guessing where it will end up for our sunset shot. In the meantime, my nephew and I kept framing shots and also fighting the mosquitoes (we were covered all the way to our head and they are still attacking us). There were only 3 photographers at this location and the lady was very kind to give us some of her mosquito spray, seeing us swatting away those blood suckers. Thanks to her and I believe her name was Kathy. Mother nature gave us a nice break with some incredible display of light around this lake at sunset time (those images will be coming soon). What a way to end our 4 days around Washington, quite a memorable afternoon. This is it for now on my Rainier images I need to learn some workflow to work on the rest of my images. ;-)

 

"A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever."

High up on the mountain of Pindus in the north of western Greece and in an idyllic plateau of a rather high altitude of 1350m, in the foothills of Montenegro, you can find the artificial lake of river Aoos. The lake was created with the construction of a hydroelectric dam from the Public Power Corporation (ΔΕΗ) in 1987. The great natural beauty, the panoramic views and the rare landscape with alpine meadows and forests of conifers and broadleaf trees are a magnet for nature lovers and tourists.The shoreline of the lake is long and lacy with small islands formed inside. The elements that make the area particularly important for many species of fauna and flora are large pastures, dozens of small streams with continuous flow of water, small natural lakes and dense forests starting shortly after the banks. You can travel around it by car or by bike and enjoy the scenery which remains amazing all year round with great contrasting colors. -------------------------------------------------------------

Taal Volcano is an active volcano which can be found at Tagaytay PH. Its location is very unique because it was formed at the center of a lake. If you wish to see the volcano's crater, there are some tour guides who are offering this service. Less than an hour of boat ride and an hour of horse back riding then you'll be able to see it's biggest crater at the center.

 

Aside from that, you'll experience a cold wind in Tagaytay at night. This is the main reason why many Pilipinos visit this city mostly during summer, which is the school vacation here in PH, and on the last quarter of the year.

 

Since it's summer during the time i took this shot, my family and i went up to Tagaytay to relax and for our younger cousins to try out horse back riding. On the place where we stayed, i saw that Taal Volcano can be seen clearly so i get my camera and take some shots of it.

 

This is the story of this shot.

 

Thank you for reading and i hope you'll follow my future posts. :)

The lake was frozen and the sun came out just for a few minutes.

Early morning between blue hour and sunrise.

Taken a few weeks ago... My friend Max and I decided to head to Abraham Lake for sunrise.

What a great morning it was.
