It seems that every year (or any time of the year), I go back to this place, Lake Whetstone. I used to live close to this community, and I remain amazed at the lake's serene beauty which is magnified during autumn. It's a quick getaway from life's daily grind and the lake itself is an easy access or drive from I-270. It is here where I've taken lots of walks and stared quietly at the lake as I get lost in my thoughts. Somehow, I found the lake's company soothing and relaxing.
It is here where I've practiced taking photos with my then brand new Nikon last year. The lake and wildlife thriving in the area are perfect subjects for an amateur photographer like me. By far, autumn is my favorite time to visit because I know the trees around the lake are ready to show off some colors. With my several visits during the year, I figured out that early in the morning is the best time to take photos especially when it's not breezy or windy. When I took the photos below, I was lucky because the lake was calm and the surrounding houses and autumn foliage were perfectly reflected on the lake like a mirror.
As I post these photos, autumn is slowly bidding goodbye in the area. There are still colors but not as bountiful like last month. Nevertheless, I am so thankful and glad I was able to capture autumn this year. I will be posting more autumn themed photos. I hope you'll enjoy looking at them as I had a blast taking photos of autumn's lovely colors.
