This Week at the Lake – 17/52
This was a great week at the lake. The weather has cooled some and it was so nice. I had Monday and Tuesday off work, Monday I went to Cades Cove and we came back home Monday evening. Since I already had Tuesday off work, I went to the lake! I got there about 6:15 am and was able to walk the entire loop – something I haven’t done in a long time.
I had a feeling I was going to see the same sun rays I saw in Week 15. I was right, as the sun started coming through the trees, the rays began to shine down. I spotted a few deer nearby and decided I was going to sit there until one crossed the path. It took about 20 minutes, but finally one did. I was shooting away as she watched me the entire time she crossed! I was so excited, I kept checking the viewfinder the rest of the hike to make sure it really happened!
I did see an owl that morning but could not get a good shot of him before he flew off.
The Heron I was watching started flying away so I tried some in-flight shots. I followed him all the way back around to the spillway trail. Every time he flew away he just flew further down the trail so I met up with him again and again. I’m sure he was tired of me!
I had made the full loop now and saw that people were filming a commercial there were packing up (they were setting up when I first got there). They had a car waiting and Governor Phil Bredeson came walking out to get in.
You never know what you’ll see at Radnor Lake…..
On Friday, I was meeting the Nashville Photography Meetup Group Downtown at 7pm so I had some time after work. I headed to the lake and was able to walk the entire loop again.
