This week was all about light and color and staying in one place for seven days. I landed at a Corps of Engineers park on Lake Thurmond, which spans the border of Georgia and South Carolina. I camped in South Carolina but all my errands were done in Georgia this week!
The lake had me at sunset the first night I was here. Big sky, reflections, clouds, all the stuff I love.
The most enjoyable feature of my campsite was that I could launch my kayak from the water just below me. This is the view from my trailer…
… and this is the view from my kayak looking up at my site (that light spot is the Alto). Yep, pretty sweet deal this week.
Twice, I went out far enough I circled this tiny island. I’m sure it used to be a rather serious little mountain but the lake drowned pretty much everything except for a few of these little spots.
Remember those errands I mentioned? Well, Augusta hosted the Masters golf tournament over the last week, and even the Walmart got into the spirit. Hey, maybe this was Tiger’s good luck charm!
I’ll close with a blue hour photo from Tuesday’s dusk walk. All last week, I was dying for blue hour images for my 52 Frames challenge (blue hour comes as the sunlight is fading around sunset) but clouds seemed to taunt me every evening. Now that the blue hour challenge is history, I got nothing BUT blue hour photo ops. So enjoy this one. See you next week!
i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
