The photohunters theme this week is free and I felt free to do anything.
This is another one of those topics which has so many possibilities that it's difficult to know which one to choose.
Monday was a free day from work for me since July 5 was a holiday. The U.S. Independence day fell on Sunday this year so the national holiday was Monday.
I took advantage of a free morning to go on a walk at Shelley Lake. All of these shots were taken on my free July 5 holiday walk.
I managed to get out early enough so that I was fairly free from the extreme heat which came later in the day.
The lake was even free of the crowds that were out on Saturday when Bill and I took advantage of an unusually cool day to go on a walk.
I guess the regular early walkers were taking advantage of a free day to sleep in so it was great to have a relatively quiet morning at the lake on Monday. I think the crowds were so bad on the trail where we walked on Saturday because everyone was free to get a later start and still have a cool breeze.
The heat is back with a vengeance so it's not practical for me to try to walk unless I manage to get up and out early. The mallard duck and Canada Goose below can't get free of their shadows.
Photohunters post their links at the home of the hunt beginning Saturday mornings. I hope everyone is fancy free and has a great weekend.
