I had picked my daughter Catherine and her friend up from school and we were almost home. Just before turning into our neighborhood I noticed that White Rock Lake looked uncommonly beautiful. Calm, gray, with a bit of romantic fog and beautiful reflections. I didn’t have a DSLR with me but did have my Panasonic DMC-LX3. It was after 4:30pm and I knew the light was going. Raced back to the lake (two blocks), parked and ran (very cautiously) across Garland Rd, found a spot — and realized the camera didn’t have a storage card! Luckily the LX3 has an internal buffer. I knew I needed to shoot raw and with the large raw files, I could only take a few photos. These are the two best.

Those are coots in the water.

Fog can do nice things for landscape photos.
Haven’t had a chance to make prints yet but hope to this weekend. These are photos that need to be viewed in print, and large.
