… there are subscribers to these missives in more than 15 countries and idioms and definitions of words are not uniform across all societies and cultures. So I was surprised when I heard from a friend in Norway that they had mercury lakes … I wrote back that I thought that was awful and wondered if they could clean the lake up or something like that. He replied with a photo of the mercury lake that they had their cabin on … a mercury lake, which to them represents a lake where the waters are so smooth that it has the appearance of a pool of liquid mercury. So here is a “mercury lake” that I was on this morning aka Lake Mary; at the SE end of the lake looking back up to the NW.
The water was the quietest I have seen there and we had a shoot fest of everything from dragonflies to herons, osprey, Canada geese and more. Shots of a great blue heron nailing a dragonfly, fish and crawdad, and with patience, shots of dragon flies like this Blue Eyed Darner dragonfly who hovered just long enough for me to grab a focus on him. Pretty cool shooting if I do say so!
Have a beautiful day and dream of glassy mercury lakes … thanks Tore 🙂
