-Your Favorite Color? - Green.

Is it a sky fallen into the lake or is it a lake floating in the sky?

How can people drive by without stopping here? Maybe, it's good that they don't stop...

How many shades of green does nature have?
If this is not beautiful, then what is?

Small lake somewhere on the Kitsap Peninsula, state Washington.
We took a day trip to Port Townsend, drove along the Hood Canal and I almost caused an accident when suddenly shouted: "Stop!!!Stop!!!" when saw this lake.
Nobody was around.
My heart just sunk.

  1. Just Beautiful, reminds me of Wisconsin in the summer time.

  2. This reminds me a bit of home. We live on a 48 acre lake and have several large pines and cedars. They are so beautiful all year round. We have often said it did not matter what kind of house we built, it would be beautiful b/c of the view. I never fail to appreciate it, and thank God there are still lovely sites to see.


  3. I bet it's called "Mirror Lake." Or it should be. Nice photos Tatyana.

  4. Stunning would be a good word for this view. You are lucky to live near by.


  5. Very pretty!! We are lucky to have such beauty in our state!
    Did you get any snow?

  6. It is beautiful. The water looks like glass.

  7. beautiful, beautiful!

  8. This is beautiful totally different to Australia. I have put it on my pc as my desktop background...hope you dont mind!

  9. Beautiful! Reminds me of the lakes in the Upper Peninnsula of MI. All the lakes up there are incredible.

  10. This is off the subject..but on your photo (under your title photo)...the tall silvery white that some type of monarda? I admire it everytime I visit your page!

  11. Beautiful place, beautiful pictures! VW

  12. We live in such a pretty part of the world and I don't ever take that for granted.

  13. Beautiful photos in this post. But then, your header photos are fantastic! :-) Looking forward to Spring!

  14. Such a beautiful place! Great pictures to / gittan

  15. Not only beautiful photos but excellently posed questions~~gail

  16. It truly is a beautiful spot, and just think, you had it all to yourself!

  17. Nice Zen post. If a lake exists in the woods and nobody stops to look at it, does it really exist? Well, you know it does, since you did stop. Lovely! I do those frantic screech-stop pull-overs too. :)

  18. Tatyana,

    I agree I would have stopped as well. Some people can be at the most perfect place and never know it.

  19. The most shades of green I've ever seen were in Hawaii. Though where I grew up looks more like your first few photos above. There were little lakes (big ponds) off in the woods with no roads or people. We'd take our fishing poles into the woods. Never caught anything significant, but the fishing was easy!

  20. Pristine is as fine of a word as I can think of to encompass these photos. That, and perhaps serenity...

  21. Looks like Northern Russia!!! Beautiful and quiet, makes me want take a banya then jump in. Wonderful website! Spaciba vam!!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
