Project Alicia : WW: A Respite for the Soul

WW: A Respite for the Soul

If you have never had the opportunity to behold Lake Murray, you are seriously missing out. I can't think of a place I'd rather be.

The water seems to have healing properties and a personality all it's own. And although it seems to have many different moods, I have yet to encounter one that I didn't like.

Just take a peek for yourself.

The exact same frame can be different just minutes apart, particularly in the wee early hours when the sun is just waking up.

I'd love to know if there is one photo you like more than another from the sampling above. I'm thinking of adding some of the lake shots to my etsy shoppe in the coming weeks.

Additional Info:
Internet is still not available out here at the lakehouse, but I have just received a verizon hot spot and I'm hoping that this makes connecting with you a little easier. I ask that you please bare with me during this transition.

You can also find me over on facebook, twitter, or pinterest, as they are easy to access from my phone at the moment. And if you would like me to be able to respond to your emails from my iphone, please make sure to check out this short tutorial on how to change your blog settings so that your email is not set as a ”no reply” email address.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  15. Those photos are incredibly stunning! I want to move there...

  16. My favorites are the pink sunset and misty on the lake. You son seems to really love the lake, Looks like so much fun, I'd like to explore that little strip of island too.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The first and last pictures are amazing. And? I LOVE YOUR BOOTS! Hot mama! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Really? Pick just pick one photo? That's crazy impossible. If you forced me to choose, I'd pick the first fog photo with the dock and the tree on the left. But it would be torture to choose just one.

  23. I LOVE that one of the jetty/pier jutting into the misty lake, with the pine tree. That is unreal.
    But it really does look like a magical place. perfect for a lover of beauty like you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gosh! These are so gorgeous. Can I come and visit? Ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Pick just one shot? Are you kidding me? But if you insist - I love SIX - the fog, the quality of the light - it is serenity in a rectangular image!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love them all... as usual! I really love the clouds!! I got some great pics on our trip to TN

    ReplyDelete
  27. These are all so gorgeous! What a beautiful place to live! My favs are the 6th one (the dock with the foggy lake) and the last one. I could stare at them all day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Absolutely gorgeous! I'd be smitten :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Beautiful Photos of such a peaceful place!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a gorgeous lake! How cool that you have all that inspiration right there in front of you. My personal fav is the fog on the lake at the end of the dock. But I'm also quite enraptured by the gorgeous fall colors on the trees reflected in the perfectly still water. Stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like the one with the pink sky just because the frame has so many interesting things going on in it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I feel so peaceful just looking at these. My soul actually feels calmer

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love these, Lish!!! Beautiful! I would definitely be putting these in your Etsy shop!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Gorgeous collection Alicia. Especially the photo of lake it is so very peaceful.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The last one is captivating.
    What a difference between your new home and old. You would have been preparing yourself for snow, instead kids are still wearing swimsuits! So happy for you.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The lack of "real" internet has to be killing you but you have lots of time for photography! Awesome shots. I hope all is well in South Carolina. We'll send some Midwest snow and wind down your way to enjoy soon. Ha! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Favorites? The fog and the sunrise/set ones. The others are amazing too.

    ReplyDelete

  44. Beautiful images. I'm with you, there is nothing better than a body of water, any body of water, for healing the soul.

  45. Gorgeous photos. I would definitely add them to your shop.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love them all but the 2nd and 6th photos are my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  47. All the photos are fabulous but the ones that called to me were the Sunset photos and the ones with the fog. Wow! You are an amazing photographer.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm jealous that you can still be outside so much. Looks like the move has done you good.

    ReplyDelete
  49. That is a lake to fall in love with! Just beautiful. I'm partial to the 5th photo - love the vibrant red leaves as a spot of brilliant color. :)

  50. The last shot is BREATHTAKING! They are all so pretty. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow--the picture of the pier and the misty lake took my breath away. I literally had to stop on it and take a deep, relaxing breath. That looks like an amazing place.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Beautiful lake pictures. I think that I would have a slight heart attack without Internet.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Beautiful! I like the dock in the fog, and the last shot also with the fog. Very mysterious yet calming.
    Thanks for sharing, they're lovely

    ReplyDelete
  54. You are so right about that body of water. I've been feeling a little run down and that just picked me right up. ;-)

    Gorgeous shots! I love the misty, foggy lake shot and the sunrise shot (the second photo) in the series.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I happen to love the 6th one down the best- but they all make me want to come stay with you :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Beautiful, as always. I love the picture of the dock in the mist most of all.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Like I commented on Kristi's WW...I know I shouldn't be but I'm very envious of your photos! I need to get out of the city and find some country to shoot. Maybe this weekend (or next week) will be my time to get out there. Tired of the same ole same ole shots that I keep getting.

    ReplyDelete
  58. These photos are beautiful especially the reflections of the sky on the water.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm fond of the second, the fourth, and the ninth shots. I might actually purchase that ninth one (the one with the old broken down dock.)

    Happy WW! And hope you get reliable Internet access soon!

  60. How in the world are we supposed to pick a favorite out of all of those fabulous shots? Beautiful. Don't you just love how fall holds out til the last minute around these parts? The leaves are beautiful this week.

    My daughter has a Verizon Hot Spot and it works well for them. Hope it helps.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Beautiful Pics! My two favorites are the ones with the fog. Fog just seems to make everything so eerily beautiful and mysterious. Happy Hump day! Hope your having a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my - the photo with the tree and the dock... I can't stop staring. Gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Really gorgeous shots! I love living near the water. You are right about it speaking to your soul.

    I particularly love #5, but it's a tough choice for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  64. So wonderful. It touched my heart. Fantastic !

    ReplyDelete
  65. I grew up on a lake, so these photographs WOWED me! I love the foggy dock shots!
    Thank you so much for hosting!

  67. Very Nice shots. My favorite is the second one. It looks so warm with the sunset, someplace I could picture myself going. It would be nice framed.:)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh, wow, the pictures are all gorgeous, what a lovely lake. I love the water in the first shot. And, though, I can't even begin to pick a favorite i really like that old dock (that is the correct word right?)
    Lovely

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love the last picture and the misty one in the middle with the dock and the tree.

    Sorry I am so late this week. Life happens, you know!
