I Am Loving The Fall

Spring and Fall are my seasons, the temps are generally mild, the weather is usually gorgeous.  It’s a time of transitions as we move from the heat and humidity of summer to the dry mild temps of fall.  Not to mention the gorgeous colors we are blessed with.  Atleast for those of us that are lucky enough to see the colors change.

Every fall I spend alot of time in the country and at different lakes.  I think I could be happy with a cabin in the woods where I could wake up looking out over a lake.  Sometimes it’s hard to leave the country, but I know I will return, maybe the next day to see what else has changed.

The colors only last a short time but I wake up happy and excited to see them and enjoy more of the mild temps before it turns cold.  I of course enjoy being able to photograph the season as it changes.  Which I did this morning, I found myself at the lake wandering around, seeing what I could.  I think most of the time is spent daydreaming and letting my mind wander where it will.  But enjoy the photos, I enjoyed taking them…

Nice Morning At Lake – Part 1

Was a nice morning for a drive, there was a chill in the air that felt good after the heat we had been having.  I wasn’t exactly sure where I wanted to go but I knew I wanted to see water and was hoping for some fall colors.  I got both, sort of.  I decided on Easter Lake, its on the outskirts of Des Moines and is a 172 acre lake thats full of walking and biking trails, trails through the woods, fishing, swimming, shelters for gatherings, boating.  It’s basically a good place to take the family or just go by yourself and enjoy some quiet time.  Once I started to drive around and stopping here and there I didn’t realize how big the park really was and I only covered half of it.  The place was full of wildlife, birds, geese, cranes etc, deer and raccoons. There was even a covered bridge that was a total suprise.  I plan to go back and explore the other side once the colors start to pop more.  But there was alot of people walking, bird watching, photographers, fisherman etc.  There was some color but not alot, it’s in the beginning stages. so hopefully before to long there will be alot more.  But enjoy the pics and I included a link to the park.     http://www.mycountyparks.com/County/Polk/Park/Easter-Lake-Park.aspx
