Lake Almanor in June

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 29 June 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Usually it is warmer by now... and the water is not as high as it is now, but this year is very different. No matter the temperature, I like being there.

Panasonic DMC-ZS1 1/640 second F/5.6 ISO 80 25 mm (35mm equiv.)

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

@Marie LC: Thanks, Marie. This is where I like to come and unwind, and leave the work woes and city living behind me. It is so calm and peaceful here.

I like the mountains across the lake. This looks so cool and pleasant - as I stay inside during our 103° days.

@B. Thomas: Ha, ha. I hear you on that one, Barbara. At the lake it is always cooler than Chico. Lake Almanor is at 4500 feet, and at least 20 degrees cooler than the valley.

@Bettina: Yeah YOU would love to come visit us up here, someday, wouldn't you? Do you ever take vacations? Or just work, work, work?

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

I WOULD love to come one of these days. As it is, it's still work work work. But one of these days. When I change my life. haha. Or life changes me. :)
