Sunset over the lake
It seems like forever since I was able to view, and photograph, a beautiful sunset. I guess it has been 3 months since we left Arizona. But now we are in the wilds again, and I was able to get some amazing sunset shots the other night.
We arrived at what is pretty much the Idaho, Wyoming border last Thursday. Al was sick on Weds, so we postponed a day. There is a huge reservoir here, Palisades, that spans both states. The place we wanted to boondock at was taken, and the mosquitoes were horrid there anyway. So we went up the road a little bit and found a less buggy place. Friday we drove into Jackson Hole to deliver some pedestals to the gallery, and I took some beadwork to my friends shop in town. We then met them for dinner that night in Victor for some amazing food.
Saturday night looked like a good sunset night, so we drove a tiny bit up the road to get away from the trees.
It proved to be beautiful.
This lake is fed by the snake river, and the lake and the river both are in forested canyons. There are a ton of Osprey all through this area. You can see huge nests on power poles all along the road. This one was flying low over the lake, no doubt looking for dinner.
Then he landed in a nearby tree.
I love being near the water, it’s so calming and relaxing.
