Beautiful lake views

The theme of this week’s photo challenge is ‘satisfaction’. I went through my photos trying to see if there was something I would like to post here.

First thing that I came up with were findings from the flea market. I love flea markets! I go there often and make great findings quite often. The thing is, I never take photos of them. But maybe I should! 

I did find two scenes that I find extremely satisfying. The first is Finnish lake view. I don’t know why but I calm down instantly when looking at this view. My heart beat slows down, my mind stops racing and my muscles relax. I could stare at this for hours. The first photo is from our summer holiday trip to Ikaalinen. The second one is from near our home.



But I can’t leave out the view of a field either. Part of this satisfaction is also the silence. You can only hear the wind moving the crops but other than that it’s silent. No traffic, no nothing.


This is my contribution to the weekly photo challenge!

I’ll see you soon!

  1. Lol!!! I think this post would be great for the word ‘contrast’, Mannamaria, as the peacefulness and silence of your lake photos is the complete opposite of the images of going to a flea market!! But I would agree with you, both places can be equally satisfying! πŸ™‚

  2. These are such beautiful shots. I am always reminded when I see photos of Finland and nearby countires how much Scandanavia is like Canada. (Is that last picture canola? Which we have in so many of our fields right now)
