Nature photography from a woman in the woods

In the Water . . .


“A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable.” ~ William Wordsworth

Continued from (On the Water’s Edge post) … Let’s move from the edges of the water to what I found in the water that day …

The waters of the lakes and river were each unique from each other.  The stillness of the water in a little bay on one lake, the rocky beach of another, the flowing water and grasses of the river, the waves on the bigger lake.  I love water, I love taking picture of water, water is home to so many things, hides other things and makes a home for still others.  When it comes to water you have to gaze long and look deep . . .

Old sticks, loons, reflections, minnows, a fish, new vegetation are some of the things I found in the water on my last trip to the area lakes: (click to enlarge and see the slideshow)

    • Lush vegetation …. YES … we have tons of it! Things are very green and thick. These are mostly wilderness lakes surrounded by State and Federal lands. There is one small resort on the end of the large lakes, a rustic campground on another and only a few seasonal cabins scattered around.

      At times, I think there is too much vegetation … that’s why the bugs love to live here 😉
