Lake Papaiannia - The Storm

In pursuit of the photo of the day I took a quick detour on the way home this afternoon. With The Daily Shoot assignment in mind for today's shot I headed over to Lake Papaiannia Park in search of a leading trail.


As I spent a few minutes at the park I noticed a storm just rolling right in from the northwest, with quick moving clouds that were just rushing right in.


The reflection on this little lake caught my eye... and despite the impending storm the water was pretty calm.

Within feet of where I stood was the signs of warmer, brighter summer days


A lakeside table for a picnic lunch or late afternoon snack,


A bench to relax and take in the view of the lake and it's surroundings. There is a trail around the lake that is used frequently by the town residents and leashed dogs on their daily walks. Maddox has had fun walking the trail in the past, it time to take him back!

There's nothing like a summer storm... which happens to by my current post topic as well. I love the second photo. The sky is so blue yet the reflection is aqua.. so beautiful! The last shot is a stunner too.

That storm adds lovely drama to the photos. Makes me wish I was there.
