Lilydale Lake: a magical place ...

... on a foggy winter morning that is.  The last two weekends I have gone for a walk around Lilydale Lake; the first with my Saturday morning walking group and the other with my dear friend, Marie in lieu of our usual walk around Princes Park in Carlton.

It was the first time I had ever been there (or even knew that there was a lake there) and it was absolutely stunning, especially in the early morning mist. It was so magical that I half expected the Lady of the Lake to thrust Excalibur out of the water!

 There was a wealth of bird life and a myriad of great photo opportunities but I will let the photos speak for themselves......

There was a model yacht competition taking place on my first walk.

There is even a beach for toddlers to have a splash in the water on the long, hot days of summer.

 Altogether, a wonderful place to take a walk - so very beautiful and lots to see.

Stunning pics Kaye! What a beautiful time you two had on your walk.
Very Avalon! You can just imagine going back in time through that mist.

Technical tip - level out the horizon! The Admin for the group I am in is very strict about level horizons LOL Obviously we get a lot of sea shots in the group, we are The Sunrise Coast after all!
Wow, beautiful photo in fog!
Thank you for sharing!
