Come Saturday Morning: Pretty Picture
This was taken at a lake near where I live. It was a lovely day in June, the sky was blue, and I wanted to capture the golden light of the sun on the water and the lily pads. Didn’t quite pull it off, but I think you can see what I was trying to preserve in pixels.
The bucolic look is deceptive: You can’t tell it from the pic, but right behind the photographer is a four-lane road, and the whole scene is not far at all from the “bad” part of town (which really isn’t that bad). I really should go out and take a winter version of this scene, but I think I’ll wait for snow to be on the ground.
What pretty things are in your lives lately?
