Tree Glow

Delta Lake State Park

Whew! Saturday and the start of the weekend.

This past week at work was crazy. I never mind putting in the work but when I spend all day running around fighting “fires” and at the end of the day I didn’t touch my to-do list. It is tough!

I know, enough whining! I’ll stop…

It was a beautiful Friday evening. I should have gone to Delta Lake but my new tables arrived early! I finally decided to replace a few items from the house in my living room. When I was done putting everything together and thought to actually eat something the light was gone. I have the rest of the weekend to make up for that though.

Anyway… I was thinking of Delta Lake so I went back to my pics from a week ago. Even looking at them on the screen has a similar affect as being there. I can hear the lap of the water against the shore and the leaves rustling in the trees. If you leave the beach and follow the path through the woods you will find this little alcove. I timed it well to capture the last peek of the sun through the trees.

Sit and enjoy the view before today gets busy…

Three Pandas

China Pavilion, Epcot, Walt Disney World

The big draw for me in going to Walt Disney World in the spring is Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival. And part of that festival are the topiaries scattered throughout the park. They are not always situated in the best location for photography but the three pandas in the China Pavilion could not have been more appropriate. I was lucky enough (or maybe I had enough patience) to manage this view without any distracting guests…

Golden Reflection

Delta Lake State Park

I admit it. I have a problem. I cannot pass up a good reflection. Add to it some beautiful sunset light and I’m stopping every time. I was on my way to the beach area at Delta Lake State Park but this view at the park entrance totally distracted me. I pulled into the parking area for the park office and walked to the edge of the water.

In a few more weeks (sadly, but also eagerly awaiting) this will be a perfect view for autumn colors. One of my favorite autumn images from 2019 is this view. I would have stayed longer exploring this area but the mosquitos were killing me! I ran back to the car to apply generous amounts of repellant and then headed toward the beach. I will be back to this spot soon…

Slipping Away

Delta Lake State Park

I wanted to enjoy the sunset last evening. Another long day at work needed to slip over the horizon. Standing at the edge of the water while the sky filled with the sun’s fading colors was the therapy I needed to recoup my energy. It worked…
