“What are these red and blue reflections on the surface of the lake?”
“This is the Lake of Frozen Shadows. It is believed that some divine souls once sailed on the lake, but never returned. Images of their shadows are frozen on the surface.”
“Can we go boating to have a closer look?”
“Boating is not allowed here, as villagers await the return of the Souls. The shadows might work as a pullback. The lake remains frozen for a major part of the year.”
The couple walked away, and the tourist guide stood transfixed.
They had left their shadows behind.
