Recently we discovered the little lake down the road was again filled with water. It’s in a nature preserve area that has been “under construction” for the past two years. Because the reeds and grasses grew up and overtook the little lake, it has been dry for several months. They dug out and removed all of the reeds. I do wonder if they did anything to prevent them from returning.
I was excited to go after work last night and walk around. It was beautiful and in the sunset lighting, I liked how some of the reflective photos came out.
Unfortunately, the tiny bugs were horrendous! It was a brisk walk around the small lake, and I spent all evening trying not to scratch the dozens of bites! Good news though, today they aren’t bothering me.
I played around with the editing. Which one is your favorite?
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
