1794 – It’s Oh So Quiet I

Yesterday afternoon we had a short but heavy thunderstorm here in Carinthia, but it didn’t last long enough to cause major damage. I even went swimming later on, and I made this image, being immersed in our lake, but still near enough to the shore that I could easily stand.

The Song of the Day is “It’s Oh So Quiet” from Lisa Ekdahl’s 2002 album “Heaven Earth & Beyond”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. I would have loved to swim there, in fact it reminds a lot of our lakes. Pairing an image like this with the lovely Lisa Ekdahl makes all sense. It is a lovely image, serene and contemplative, but with lots of life just under the surface.

    1. Yes, it was a pretty magic moment with the air cool from the rain, the water still warm, a slight haze over the water and a post-summer quietness around.

  2. Excellent composition which leads me easily into the depth, yet keeps me “down to earth” – not losing the touch with the exquisite watercolor. Very interesting color chords and overall a really serene moment. Nice, very nice!

    and the square format is one of the most important aspects here… provides room but does not force me to go anywhere, not up or sideways… I can simply float around.
