Lake Dreams – can you help me out?

Last year i entered this photo into a local photo contest and to my surprise this photo was one of the three winners. And a few days ago i received a message that the organization behind that contest had entered my photo in yet another contest. So i thanked them and suggested they should share the photo on social media, since the most votes get awarded.

So i thought it would be fun to get some international votes for the photograph too πŸ™‚
I would be very glad if you are willing to vote for this photo in the contest, let’s see if i have a chance. You may have to search for my photo, should be on the first page, but not sure as other entries might be added. You should click on ‘STEM’ (which is Dutch for VOTE)
Link to contest

ps. If you don’t want a newsletter, don’t forget to tick off the newsletter when you cast your vote. Or perhaps you want to learn some Dutch, then it’s ok πŸ˜›

And in the mean time, enjoy the scenery just as the Germans on the photo and me behind the lens did πŸ™‚

Lake Reflections

Hilgelo met Riet en molen

The clouds reflect on themselves
As they drift off in the evening sky
Contemplating their existence
They’re sure to vanish in thin air

The water is receptive to all
View and motion touching
Its surface while the deep
Remains still and unmoved

The mill stands proud
As a tiny point in history
She carries the past in her bones
Long gone on this present day

Standing on the shore of the lake
I see that natural and man-made
Are not so different after all as
Each is contained in the flow of life

Golden music

Two swans close together in the late evening light. They had a youngster with them which was chased away occasionally, but was allowed to stay close nonetheless. Beautiful reflection in the water reminded me of musical notes. Tsjaikovski close by πŸ™‚

Hilgelo Zoom

By far the greatest sunset of this year, July the 5th was really amazing! Wonderful colors, ever changing and deepening. Really enjoyed those few hours along the shore of this lake close to my hometown.

A new cut from a photograph from July this year. Was a wonderful sunset and seeing the photographs brings back the good feeling. Used a bit of HDR here to enhance the colors, the reflections were amazing!

 

ps. Thanks for your responses on the post about Pooh!
