Be Still My Heart

Hiking in a provincial park on a hot summer afternoon, we crest a hill and see this tiny lake. Walking down to the marshy shoreline, we seem to be entering a slightly different dimension where time has lost its power over mortality. Stillness like this is rare.

Yes very fairy-tale like, and I especially love the duet of tones, special green and pale blue are exquisite to enhance the dreamy feel. I could see flying cows over there and not feel surprised at all ! ;)
