Quiet Lake

Only in quiet waters do thing mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.

I love the quote, and the pictures that accompany it are beautiful.

Michele said...

Oh nice... I have seen them out there but never had a chance to photograph them but even if I did, they would not come out half as nice as yours!

Cedar ... said...

what's under there? maybe a large mouth bass just waiting to jump on your hook? But probably just laughing at the lure and saying "you can't fool me!" :)

They're so perfect they almost look artificial! There's a pond not to far from here covered with white and pink Lilies. Such a delight to see!
