Some people here were surprised that I went for such lazy holidays and in Poland. Indeed, it doesn't happen to me often, I can't remember spneding seven days in one place. So it is a kind of experiment how it is :).
But there are reasons for it. First, for my husband. Sometimes people find it strange how I can travel so often. The answer is pretty simple. I am retired so I have time, I can decide for a trip at once, no need to ask any chef for permission. It is the advantage of being old. You young guys sooner than you think will also be in this situation :). But my hobby is expensive even if I try to do it as cheap as possible, choosing low cost airlines, sleeping in dormitories and eating something simple. From time to time, when only is such possibility, I work. Now I have a very urgent proof reading, I must finish it in a few days, before I go for a longer trip. So I have chosen this quiet place, I have thought without Internet not to be distracted (but as you se, it is), and here I am. We make short walks and than I sit on the balcony and read very very boring book about condensed matter. So in fact, these holidays are not so lazy as it can appear (I hope :)).
This is the view from the balcony in the evening. I try different settings to prepare for the coming views from other lake and forests, much thicker and deeper.

Fine blue hour photo, Malgo.
The fg is a little dull though but the man in the middle brings so much that he is saving the rest.

It would be nice to have slightly more detail in the foreground. But that lovely violet blue sky is very seductive and more than saves the day. The fisherman silhouetted on the pier makes an interesting focal point and contributes to the mood. I like also the three pinpoints of light. Enjoy your lazy busman's holiday.

I knew that a holiday without internet or simply a lazy holiday would be impossible for you :)
That region with lots of forests and water lends itself very well for hiking.
This is a nice blue hour with the person on the small jetty placed very well on the picture.
Best regards, Paul

There is nothing against some quite and relaxing days in a nice setting from time to time, especial when you have to read some boring stuff.
The lake looks pleasant enough for such an endeavor. You have a beautiful view from your balcony but I can spot an other great photo in closing in on the lonely figure on the jetty, maybe in portrait format with some lake and sky included.
enjoy your reading :-)

A nice twilight photo with beautiful pastel shades. Well done!
Have a nice Sunday.

Cette photo d'atmosphère est magnifique. Elle décrit très bien la fin de la journée, le moment où on prend un verre en regardant le coucher de soleil après une belle journée de photo.

Beautiful colors in that sky, a simple but very effective capture that really does set the tone for a relaxing peaceful holiday. I love that you included the lone figure on the wates edge, it gives an excellent sense of isolation here. His silhouette stands out perfectly against the water and the whole scene is composed so well.
Thanks as always

Też się wybieram na wakacje i zamierzam podziwiać takie widoki, ale niestety prognozy są raczej deszczowe, a taki wieczór to marzenie

forse il più meravigliato è proprio tuo marito!!!
Spero che sia tu, che tuo marito, possiate godervi un po' di tempo in tranquillità, nonostante il libro noioso. Il luogo dovrebbe essere perfetto per questo, le foto lo dimostrano.

Reaction to my picture, indeed Leuven is very old but almost completely destroyed through the German army today exactly hundred years ago, during WW I or the Great War.
You can see the second picture, with the pictures that today on different place can see.
Back to your picture, the late evening picture cares for a pleasant contrast picture.
The sky and light are pleasant.
Very well of colours and nice presentation too.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,
