My Peaceful Place

Yay for the weekend and getting to spend time with OH :)

Yay for the weather showing some sign of improvement....marginally. Due for a downpour but at least the treacherous ice and snow have almost gone. We did actually see some sunshine briefly and taking a walk it almost felt springlike.

I'd like to share some pictures with you today of a special place for me. It isn't beautiful in the classic sense of the word, but it has a serene beauty and amazing peacefulness that is quite awesome. It's a place to let everything go and to be still.

It's name is Llyn Fawr, which in Welsh means Big Lake. It isn't big at all :)
It lies at the top of a mountain where the ice of ancient glaciers gouged out the basin. Once the Ice Age retreated it left behind a glass clear lake.

The site is designated as one of Special Scientific Interest for the flora and fauna that abound in this largely undisturbed spot. Access is allowed via just one path and there are strict limits on where you can wander to protect the rare species. I have yet to meet anyone else there when I have visited.

Do you have a favourite place? What emotions does it bring to you?


  1. I love the intimacy of this post and your relationship with this place. I do have a little spot too, has similar traits.

    1. Thanks for commenting Katie, glad you have somewhere too :)

  2. Beautiful. I love what nature brings us with her colors and much beauty.
    Thank you

  3. WOW- Love the photos. It brings an immediate feeling of calm when looking at them. LookinBeauty is such a stress reliever.

  4. Thank you for sharing these photos. I have a special place too - but it is over 1,000 miles (I live in the United States) from my home. I hope to be able to visit it later this winter.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment :)
