Who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows? Only time...
And who can say if your love grows,
As your hearth chose? Only time...

... so well said and felt. Listening Enya's song Only time and seeing this old photo maked me remember about my "old roads" in the place where I was born. The lake in the shot is a dear place of mine - Three Waters Lake - where I was many times with my parents.

Dedicated to all homesickers.

Best wishes,

Bonjour Ioana,
Une magnifique photo pleine de mélancolie et les tons sépia accentuent cette ambiance.
J'ai peu l'habitude de te voir dans ce registre ...
En tout cas superbe, photo et note !
Bon week-end à toi.

I think what attracts me here are the finely defined textures -- super contrasts between sky and water here

Hi Ioana,
Very beautiful photo! The Enia's song is a very good complement at this nostalgic mood.
The sepia tones, too! I like the rendering of the ripples on the lake.
"Who can say where the road goes", perhaps towards the secret landscapes you kept in your heart!
My compliments! Annie

excellent, as usual.. i really like shadows and light! ;)) nice idea indeed!

Hallo dear Ioana.
I know how you'r feeling. The place where you grown up, is always in your mind and sometimes you feel homesick for it.
I grown up behind the Dunes of the Northsee, when I am in the area, always go to see the sea, at Kijkduin.
Have a lovely and Healthy week.

Ciao Ioana!
Ti-e dor de casa?
O atmosfera de vis si niste tonuri minunate in compozitia ta!
Un weekend frumos va doresc!

Coucou Ioana,
Un petit coup de nostalgie... j'ai connu ce sentiment.
Très belle illustration, ce sépia porte bien l'ambiance voulu.
Très bonne semaine :)


You are a true artist Ioana, and it is evidence here with a
simple and elegant sepia composition that conveys all the beauty and serenity of this location.

Hello Ioana
Here is a kind of work a few different of those I use to see in your galery, and I love it. Superb atmosphere and a great light in a fantastic sepia convertion. Is poetic and peacefull (the grea depht of calm waters)with a dramatic touch given for the clouds capture. Superb silhuets, and a superb compo. Excelent Enya choice in your note.
For me a master piece. Congrats, mb

Hi my friend!
Nice place and great work.I like it.

Lovely tones in this image Ioana, well composed and fine detail. With my original home 2500 miles west I do find my mind wandering at times,

Hi Iona,
I want to understand you and all homesickners...
Nostalgic image full of emotions...
