The Lady of the Lake

My mother took this photograph of a loch in Scotland, back when we lived in England over a decade ago (when you had to use film! And there was no LCD screen to see if it turned out! *gasp*). I think the reflection of the shore in the water is absolutely stunning.

But rotating this picture reveals an even more amazing scene -- can you see it?

A lovely Victorian lady, complete with pale face, elegant up-do, and a black veil. And her hands are clasped so neatly behind her back.

While this may not be what Sir Walter Scott had in mind, I think our Scottish lass might truly be termed "The Lady of the Lake."

Just a bit of whimsy to close out a busy week!


  1. Oh, that's right...cameras used to use film...and you had to actually get prints of the pictures on the film, no matter how awful they turned out...that ago...

    What a great picture, from both angles! Very cool!

  2. Not quite as awesome as this picture of a reflection, though. ;)

  3. What a lovely picture! And fun to see the "Lady" :-)

    Have a blessed Lord's Day!

    Lots of love,

  4. Hello!

    I just discovered your lovely blog through my friend vintagegirl's. I was pleasantly surprised to see that you have traveled to Scotland. My family and I toured England, Scotland, and Wales last September for the first time; and we loved every minute of it!

    Have a wonderful day!


  5. Amazing! You are blessed to have done so much travelling. Europe seems delightful. :)

  6. What a gorgeous photo! I would love to live in England!! I visited years ago - and I long to go back!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
