Lake Splendor!

Before the change of the leaves...

before the snow....

before Christmas....

there was late summer.

And it went out in splendor!

Sunset and the moon rising....

Dusk over a small lake near where we live....

A HUGE "plate" mushroom on a wood's tree:

Wagner Falls, in September:

A migrating duck on our lake near sunset:

Dusk on our Lake Michigamme:

That cool white house on the cliff is right directly across the lake from our house...
I have always loved it.

And with ducks in front of it?

A lone goose in the water:

Heading home on the boat at dusk on our lake:

One of our lake's islands at sunset...
when the golden "civil twilight" brings out the beauty
in everything it washes:

Now..if I could just make or invent
makeup for our skin
to do what the  setting sun does
for nature...
I'd be a millionaire!!!!

I am still loving your photos and read every post inhaling all that yooperness. I've been guilty of not taking the time to leave a comment to thank you for all this beauty.

My sister and her husband have moved to Marquette - they are not about 8 hours away instead of the 2 they used to be. I miss her terribly. I am hoping to make the trip to see her in April or May.

Hope you had a merry christmas and that your new year ROCKS!

Beautiful scenes. Let me know when you have that make-up perfected,I want to be the first to try it. LOL

Valerie said...

Beautiful scenes. I shouldn't look at nature's beauty, it makes me greedy to digest it in person.
