December 7

Quiet Morning at the Lake

The Lake near our house takes on a completely different feel and look when thick fog descends in the night. The diffused morning light unveils a magical and mysterious world without shadows,
where even the sounds have transformed themselves and the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

The image above was taken for the Weekly Informal Challenge (Week 139): "Out of the Ordinary"
