Evening falling

There is a small lake not far from where we live. I stop by there often to watch the ducks and geese that live there.

Sometimes near the edge of the water on the far side of the lake, largemouth bass will hit the top of the water to grab a minnow or a dragonfly that ventures too close to the surface. The motion is much too sudden to capture on film.

A few days ago when I stopped by, the action was much slower. The sun behind me to the west was painting one last picture on the autumn leaves on the far side of the lake.

There will be a few more chances to take pictures over the coming days, but the frigid weather that came through last week nipped most of the leaves.

I'm glad I managed to snap this picture.


  1. What a great picture, Rick. I love the reflection in the water. Our leaves are all gone and we have snow way too early this year. UGH. Hugs- Diana

  2. It can't get much better than that! Great picture!

  3. The water is so calm, it paints a duplicate look.

  4. Beautiful pic! Another county fair winner for sure! I miss our beautiful leaves..we had a lovely fall until the snow came!

  5. That looks like our flooded rock quarry. Great shot!
