the frozen lake by iamadem the frozen lake by iamadem
this photograph was taken by a lake near my house. the walk is a mile or two and when i got there that day, the view was remarkable; as you can see, however, the lake isn't exactly frozen yet. but it's getting there. plus, when i noticed how the blue mist was hanging around the mountains, i couldn't look away.

(i also hope the category is correct. although it's partly frozen, water is still the main subject in here, i think.)

anyway, i hope you all like it.

:heart: thank you, everybody.

Well, it's from a poem of his, "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening"

"Whose woods these are, I think I know,
His house is in the village though,
He will not see me stopping here to watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer,
to stop without a farm house near,
between the woods and frozen lake, the darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake,
to ask if there is some mistake,
the only other sound, the sweep of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
but I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep."

It's pretty good- a much-loved poem by many. I like it because I can feel the quiet, bone-chilling cold that he's describing, as if I was there...

So my comment will be.....



When do you plan on taking me there?!
Oh hell it's so enchanting. I can't look away either. all shades of blue and gray are etched in this shot...the mountains far away seem to melt into the lake...and the sky seem wounded by the clouds. *coughs* sorry, I got carried away...but in any case you caught all up greatly. I love it...and you...I wish I could be there too in that moment.

I'm glad for all apart the "missing you" part, I don't like you to be sad because you miss me :) but in a way, that's good to know I guess...

:blowkiss: if hearts resonate together, I think they're near enough :hug:

Yes it does.the bitter edge sometimes comes out but well...it's to be expected and it makes all "truer" I believe.
I get your point, anyway :hug:
