Weekend Snapshot: Number 11
Bill and I went on a walk around the lake near my house yesterday (Saturday) and it was a cool, beautiful day. I was surprised to spot a dog swimming in the lake because it would have been too cold for me to do that, but I don't wear a fur coat all the time either.
It was cold enough to keep it from being crowded at the lake, as it sometimes is on a pretty Saturday. Perfect weather for me since I prefer to walk when it's cool enough for a jacket and the air is crisp. The jogger on the other side of the lake, when I took the picture below, must have been moving at a decent pace because she lapped us at least once. I did stop along the way to take a few photographs but other than that we were walking reasonably fast.I always love to spot a blue heron on the lake and I was glad I had my camera. I wish I could have shot the photograph on the other side for a better exposure. The blue heron almost looks white in this photograph, because of the lighting. The reflection of the heron shows it's coloring better which I find odd. I'm sure those who are stronger on the technical side than I am, could explain why the heron's reflection would come closer to it's actual coloration. One of these days I hope to capture a shot of the blue heron's wing span because it's quite remarkable, to me at least, up close.
I hope everyone has a great week. To learn more about WS, or to find other participants you can go to - weekend snapshot. Post day is Monday but some like me post early. You can also go to the following Technorati tag to find other participants - Weekend Snapshot
