A hint of pine hangs in the air. I sit, lunch in hand, on the hard wooden bench and breathe in the cool refreshing mountain air. Tree lined and framed by slate grey mountains, the lake glitters a myriad of colours from soft blue to green. The surface stubbornly resists my will that it settle for that photo perfect image. The wind conspires with it as a gentle breeze brushes past my shoulder and stirs the water. Just enough wind to soothe the heat of the noon day sun, beating down from a cloudless blue sky.
