A fabulous picture from Sue this week.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a secluded corner, with calm water reflecting the green leaves of summer .
The pollutants in the water give the surrounding foliage a mystical glow.
Who has ever heard of purple sands and violet trees with their indigo branches and orchid mauve leaves?
All the colours of purple are apparent here, the softness of tinged silver and warmth of colour hypnotic and surreal.
Anyone stumbling upon this place would lose track of time, falling victim to its beauty and sense of solitude.
Bathe or drink the water at your peril. Some say it is deadly, yet for others it has healing properties.
No-one knows the secret of the Purple Lake and her Guardians, yet she offers Peace, Tranquility and the stillness of Time to all.
