A Few For Myself

Over the weekend I met a teenager, who’s near and dear to my heart, at a local garden area.

To take her senior portraits.

This is the first time I’ve taken formal pictures for someone.

We had a lot of fun. And I got some really great pictues of her.

But you know I couldn’t be around all that beauty and not take a few pictures for myself.

I just couldn’t resist.

And you know I had to share them with you.

The squirrels were a little shy. But I got a couple shots before they ran off.

Who knows, maybe my passon for photography may turn into something else.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Lake Wateree Sunsets

One of my favorite things to take pictures of……sunsets.

Especially on the water.

Which, from a moving boat……

can be quite a challenge.

I was surprised to see that this moon turned out as clear as it did.

I also like capturing a silhouette.

And rays from the sun, even as it’s setting.

This was a relaxing ride at Lake Wateree.

Our last evening there.

And it was just beautiful.

After returning home and looking at all these pictures….

I was ready to return to Lake Wateree for another week.

Or two.

Lake Views

I took so many pictures while camping that I have had to break them up into themed posts.

Don’t want to overwhelm you with too many words and pictures at once.

This post is dedicated to miscellaneous lake pictures taken on this trip.

This link….Lake Wateree…..will tell you a little more about it, also with links to other sites about Lake Wateree.

This picture is a view from a lookout at Lake Wateree.

This is a view of the lookout above, but from the water looking back.

It is a beautiful place and the people who visit are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

But be sure to take your bug spray if you plan to be near the water at night.

Those little critters just might carry you away.
