Morning Walks, Fall 2020

In the mornings I walk. First my dog, then I take my camera and go on a longer jaunt, about four miles. In the fall I photograph foliage; this has been a good year for catching color, and Halloween decorations.

Young Bucks

Two young bucks have been hanging out beside the Lowell’s home on Lakeshore. The light was dim, but I managed to snap one shot of them before they drifted back into the brush.

The Lakeshore Walk

Morning sun lights up this big sweetgum on Lakeshore, a favorite walk that parallels Shackelford Creek and winds around Long Lake (#3). Hidden Lake is also accessed off Lakeshore, and I sometimes detour up to take in that view, as well. This is also the point in the Lakeshore walk where I sometimes peel off and walk the west bank of Long Lake and the north bank of Bream Lake.

Our Dry Summer Ends

Our dry summer ended abruptly during the first few days of September this year, with rain interspersed over several days that flooded the creeks and filled our lakes again here in Country Place. I snapped this photo of the Old Lake (#1) spillway on the 3rd. During the next few days I poured over seven inches of rain out of our gauge.September 3rd, 2020: Old Lake Spillway
