In a few days, my students will be back for the fall session of DragonWing Arts, and I'll be back sharing art projects with you all, but I thought in the meantime I'd show you a few summer photos, since photography is a big part of my summer creativity. Above, a great blue heron is playing peek-a-boo! Below, a luscious sunset over the lake, as viewed from our dock.
We are incredibly lucky to have a "camp" (that's the Adirondack name for a cabin or cottage or summer residence by a lake, or for some other recreation) on lovely little Loon Lake (one of several Loon Lakes in NY, but anyhow...), so any chance I get, I'm either in my kayak, or relaxing on the dock, or tromping through the woods. This summer my kayaking has brought me close to this great blue heron on a couple of occasions. I just sat quietly and watched him.
That thing you see hanging in the center of my kayak below? It's a waterproof box, for my camera, a spare battery, and a phone for emergencies. Of course, since I obviously took the picture, you probably have realized that my camera was not in the box.
I'm not sure what this interesting aquatic plant is!
