A sandy beach from tropical region? Not really! "Only" a peaceful, lovely place on the bank of one of lakes in southern Greece :>

I decided to choose this picture because it looks that everything comes back to normal in TN. And I'm really very happy because of that :> :> :> I also really hope that some of Friends who deleted their pictures - will come back here soon... :>

According to the picture, it presents part of Volvi Lake.

And here are basic types of lakes:

Glacial lake: with origins in a melted glacier.

Artificial: created by flooding land behind a dam, called an impoundment or reservoir

Endorheic - also called terminal or closed - has no significant outflow, either through rivers or underground diffusion.

Fjord lake: a glacially eroded valley that has been eroded below sea level.

Oxbow: formed when a wide meander from a stream or a river is cut off to form a lake.

Rift lake: forms as a result of subsidence along a geological fault in the Earth's tectonic plates.

Underground: formed under the surface of the Earth's crust, often associated with caves, aquifers, or springs.

Crater: forms in a volcanic caldera or crater after the volcano has been inactive for some time.

Seasonal: exists as a body of water during only part of the year.

Eolic: forms in a depression created by the activity of the winds.

Meteorite: formed during contact of meteorite with ground surface.

Hi Radomir!

You present us a delightful landscape picture. The title suits the subject at best. It's a little dreamland that you show us. The picture with the lines of the foreground that lead the eye to the horizon is so well composed. I also appreciate your instructive notes.

Kind regards

Hi Radomir,
great to see this wide open landscape from you! Hard to believe there is nobody here at such a beautiful place. Great POV and huge depth, very nice work my friend.

Hello Radomir,
A fine view of this lake, Lake Volvi. I like the perspective and the composition with the sandy beach FG and the mountain ridge in the BG.
This lake seems to have an unusually extensive beach, suggesting that the water levels change a lot. It looks like it is used as a water supply like a reservoir.
I too am thankful that things on TN are beginning to return to normal!
Best wishes,

Ciao Radomir, wonderful landscape with fantastic natural colors, great view of splendid place, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Radomir,
Beautiful photo of this Volvi Lake from a very nice POV.
Great colours and composition.

Hi Radomir,
A very different sort of shot from you this time....a nicely composed landscape with some pleasant colours and textures.
Only one wee nit. I've been noticing in a few shots lately,these areas in the sky where there seems to be rows of pixels visible where darker and lighter areas merge. I think this is from shooting at certain angles towards the light.
Do you see them too?
I think it can be corrected fairly easily.

Hi Radomir,

nice picture andwith good pov.
Beautiful colours.
I am ot leaving TN, but have my thoughts so about it.


A beautiful, pristine scene quite soothing for the soul Radomir, captured perfectly in great depth through a wide angle lens. Also a good dedication to our departed friends, hope your wish comes true in short order...

Hy Radomir
I think that all are happy that the things are comingback to normal! And this picture, with a calm environment seems to be a good way to celebrate this!
TFS and all the best, Oana

Hi Radomir! How's it going?

What a marvellous landscape, Radomir! Greece is beautiful, isn't it? Nice sunny day, warm colors, the lake... I like it! Makes me feel like taking a dip in the water. Where is my gear...?


Well done, TFS.

Best regards, Dimitri.

Hi Radomir,
