At least that’s what I told myself when the rubber boots I was wearing filled with cold lake water.
I had noticed a few starting to open, and so I bought boots. Silly me, I thought they would be tall enough.
Perhaps I shall get wader-overalls for next time.
Stopped by Lake Wilderness before going to work this afternoon.
Beautiful day, lots of people were already out, enjoying the day. Many of them were fishing, including one couple who were already out on the lake in their boat.
They looked so peaceful out there on the calm waters that they became my subject for today’s photo.
I’m pretty sure the man knew I was there, and probably thought I was a weird creeper in the bushes.
I like how the color reflected in the water
This morning was overcast and a bit drizzly when the Tob-ster and I went out for a walk.
Down by the shore sits two racks filled with varying types of water vessels; from streamlined kayaks, to family-sized canoes, and to a one-person sailboat, all of which seem to be waiting for the summer to start so they can get out on the water.
Isaac and I have yet to put our recently acquired canoe in the water, though we’ve talked about it a couple times! The next warm day we have off we’re sure to head down there with the paddles!
As we headed back home the sun did peek out a time or two and I was able to catch it.
We also found a random goose egg out on the docks….silly geese, don’t they know not to leave their kids lying around unprotected??
It was super warm last night so when I got off work Toby and I took a long stroll down by the lake.
From the little dock on the lake you can look down and see the lilies stretching their legs and reaching for the surface.
None have quite reached the surface yet, and I am looking forward to when they do. I might even do a bit of wading to get close to the blooms!
I liked how the light was falling as I walked the dog at almost-sunset.
Just a little sunset by the lake this evening. Not warm yet, but not as completely freezing as it has been lately! Just enough to get me outside to see the pretty sky.
It was quite grey and overcast all day today, ending with a bit of drizzly rain at the end.
I was highly unmotivated to take my camera out, but I forced myself to do just that during a mid-day dog walk down to the lake.
This is the original image:
Adding just a little contrasting was an improvement:
Then I was able to experiment with different techniques in PSE. This one is my favorite:
I tried variations of “carving” and sepia, as well as black and white. I like another with a bit of texturing, but this and that one are very similar.
Just playing around (a nearby, yet slightly different dimension, perhaps?) :
The only thing authentically this bright in this photo is the collection of kayaks and canoes standing by for warmer weather.
