Delta Lake State Park
Yesterday we received the rain we needed, actually the rain is continuing this morning and probably will for most of the day. In the morning I spent my time getting the normal weekend chores completed, i.e., laundry and groceries. By mid-morning the sun fought its way through the clouds and it appeared we would need to deal with another hot & humid day. It self corrected as the clouds rolled back in after dinner and the sky darkened with the coming rain.
I didn’t think I would see a sunset but I drove up to Delta Lake on the chance a bit of sun would poke through before dropping below the horizon. Due to the weather the park was basically empty. I probably saw two different families enjoying the calm before the rain.
I got lucky as one of the umbrellas for the life guard chairs was not put away. The contrast of the red and white umbrella against the completely blue scene was quite noticeable. I walked straight to the water’s edge and this is the first image I captured. Looking at it this morning I wish I had composed the scene a little differently but overall it conveys the mood of last evening.
