The Third Weekend in February

Cub Lake Bridge (marine)

I like to pretend I am a photographer from time to time, and this weekend my guy, the real photographer of the family, finally said yes to my nagging request, and let me drag the family out for some photos at the lake down the road.

It was a really nice day, no jacket required.  There was plenty of sunshine and the lake even looked alright considering all of the winter trees surrounding it.  Had we waited a few more weeks, we would probably have had some more green in the background rather than the stick colored backdrop of the day.

I am much more comfortable taking family photos with strangers around than I am of taking photos of myself.  However, there weren’t many strangers at the lake which was a surprise to me.  I thought for sure the weather would have brought out a few others, but no, it was mostly us.  Only two other people walked across the bridge while we were there.

How was your weekend?  After today, I am more anxious for spring than I was before.

  1. Thanks for sharing your weekend. It is nice to see some hope of spring somewhere. We are still under several inches of snow so spring is a long way off for us in New Jersey. My big weekend event was stumbling on an awesome moon rise to photograph on Friday night (check my blog in a few days when I post the photo). This was offset the next day with an attempt to shoot the moon setting over a frozen lake that was thwarted by clouds. The rest was a typical winter weekend.


    1. We got plenty of cold, but not really any snow worth writing about. Your moon rise sounds like it made for some great pictures, I will definitely stop on by and check it out. It is always nice to see the sky even, if it is briefly, after all of this winter everyone has been having. Hoping spring is on its way for you soon! Thank you so much for your great comment.


Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
