REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Week's Bests

I just can't decide on one "best shot."   I took a drive with my mother to the jewel of the county I grew up in:  Wallowa Lake, a beautiful 5-mile-long body of water formed by a glacier long ago.  It is noted for its "perfect moraine" that forms the sides of the lake.  I'm linking up with Nancy's Your Sunday Best and Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

West moraine has some houses in the trees

East moraine is protected from development--- highway at the base

I can see why you could not choose, Evelyn.
Each of these is wonderful.
Hmmm, I think I am going to go with the first one.
Love the composition.

These are all great photos of a beautiful area. That first photo is eye-catching.

Thanks for sharing with YSB this week.

How I long to spend time in the mountains.

I can appreciate why it's difficult to pick one when all of them are so beautiful.

They're all very beautiful, but my fave is the last pic... the fall colors w/ snow, the lake, the mountains, trees & fog... it all comes together so beautifully! =)

These are fantastic, Evelyn! In the last shot, the bits of snow and the golden trees make this a standout for me! All are beautiful reflections and compositions, though.

Love that red tree surrounded by white snow. Thank goodness we have warmer weather approaching, I am tired of the cold and I want to test out my new craft room in the summer as we dont have aircondition in the new house
