The Lake Barrine Picture

We spent a day out at the Lake Barrine, north of Cairns in Australia.

Having lunch out there and taking a boat ride in the lake is unforgettable.

There are many pictures taken there I like, as the lake and the environs are so serene, full of flora, fauna, birds and even snakes.CIMG0536B

Many of the beautiful pictures, however, have my wife in them. The only one which I can find without any person is posted here.

Very picturesque indeed!

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today was a Good Day ( Lake Barrine)

We were up north in Australia, somewhere beyond Cairns.

We were blessed with another Good Day visiting Lake Barrine.

The water in the lake was pristine with lots of flora and fauna and there was a lot of wild life on the shores of the lake.CIMG0536

After taking a cruise on the lake, we took a rest in a cafe there, entertaining ourselves with the best scones and tea we ever had.

Then we took a stroll by the lakeside and captured more photos.

This photo shows everything I needed that day. If I need a boat ride, there is a boat tied up there. If I wanted a rest under the shade, there was a bench.

What else do I need?

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity (Flowers)

We can see serenity in many things.

This water lily in our hotel at Langkawi did invoke a sense of serenity.DSC_0589

I guess serenity starts with something external but then spreads inwards so that we achieve inner peace.CIMG0543

I can never forget the beautiful view at Lake Barrine, Australia.

These water plants in the lake gave me a sense of serenity which I have always remembered.

The sunlight seemed to shine only on the plants I like.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity (Birds)

<This post contains 2 photos>

A place is usually serene if it is frequented by flocks of birds.

We were travelling on a boat in Lake Barrine, not too far from Cairns in Australia.CIMG0538

The sky was blue and the lake azul, as we moved along we found a flock of birds resting together.

We were careful not to disturb the serenity.Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

We found some ducks too in a lake not far from Cappodocia.

The water fowls were swimming happily together while the sun was setting.

Again another serene scene!
