Water Lilies

My husband and I went out for a day of relaxing fun (for me anyway) instead of the usual medical appointments.   I was prepared, camera and lenses, etc., readied last night!  The weather cooperated with bright sunshine, low humidity, and a cool breeze.

We headed out to a couple local areas, wanting to have time for photographing, not a lot of driving!   Our first stop was a local small lake, Sunset Lake, in nearby Sherrill, New York.   As you can see in the above photo, there were a lot of lily pads on the lake, especially out in the sun on the middle of the water.  Sunset Lake is very small, more of a pond.  Years ago, there were swimming lessons held there, but now it’s a natural area where people can enjoy a nature walk, go fishing (no ice fishing!), or just enjoy the sunshine.

There is a trail on one side of the lake, which we walked along, and found some of the lily pads were closer to shore, mostly in the shade.

Stay tuned for another post or two of our  beautiful day!
