August 10: Water: Lakes
Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays (a Photo or Writing Challenge)
Unlike the flowing water of the river and streams, lakes are still and silent. The water is at peace, staying in one place and providing a mirror to reflect the beauty around it.
Sitting by the lakeside, you experience the quiet beauty and strength of nature which not only provides us with internal peace but also evokes a sense of gratitude for belonging to this magnificent universe.
A few lakes that I have visited, or plan to visit sometime;
We visited here in June 2019. The place and it’s atmosphere was so serene. Despite the fact that there were many people there, the sense of calm was overwhelming. The still water reflects the surrounding landscape and the beautiful cloudy sky to perfection.
Attabad lake was created in 2010 due to a major landslide in Attabad. It’s a natural wonder and one can still see the trees which were submerged when the landslide caused Hunza river to flood the valley and form the lake. I plan to go there one day. This photo was taken by my son when he and his wife visited this place three years ago.
