After a long hiatus, I’m finally back. For those not aware, we had to move from Louisiana back to Ohio – our original home land. My Dad’s cancer had progressed to the point he was offered hospice care and 6 months to a year to live. So upon hearing this prognosis, my wife and I decided to move back to Ohio to assist with his care and the future care of my sister. After only about one month, his conditioned rapidly worsened and he passed on July 27th.
The pictures above are the first pictures we have taken since returning to Ohio, taken this past weekend. The scenes were very picturesque and very peaceful. Just what was needed. As you can see from the sunrise and the golden yellow lighting, we were out early and still in time to catch the mist coming off the water.
My favorite pictures of this grouping are the first picture and the last. In the first picture it is simply just a warm and wonderful glow as the sun is rising and is just behind the point of trees on the left. I just don’t know that a better sunrise has ever occurred.
In the last picture, it is a close up of the many lilies that we found. The mass quantities of these were simply gorgeous, but the singled out individual bloom almost looks like there is a light bulb in the bottom of the blossom. With the early morning light, it was like a field of natural light bulbs shining in the lake water.
I grew up and spent the first 30 years of my life or so right here in the Cowan Lake region. I went Crappie fishing there with my Dad, and later spent an innumerable amount of nights there fishing for Carp with two of my good friends Mike and Dwight. Monica and I went for many walks at the lake so many years ago when we were dating.
Now, life has seemingly come full circle. Things have settled down and we look forward to exploring all the many photographic opportunities in Ohio. Finally, not being in the south and not hearing any feedback like Geaux Tigers and Roll Tide, allow me to say: Go Bucks!
Until next time, from my camera to yours, “Enjoy Our Wonderful World!”
