This weekend we spent an afternoon at one of the nearby community lakes. Nestled on the outskirts of a small town, this lake is renowned for attracting hundreds of waterfowl during the year. Fishing is allowed, but it's more of a picturesque area, popular with families and photographers. It's also surrounded by playgrounds, giving the young ones a place to burn off their energy after they get bored feeding the ducks and geese.
Saturday afternoon turned out to be a perfect day for enjoying the spring-like weather. There was no wind to speak of (so rare in Kansas!) and the temperature was just cool enough to warrant long-sleeve shirts or jackets. The almost cloudless sky made for a striking sunset, giving me the chance to snap some intriguing photographs. I was hoping to take some more photos of my daughter, but she's at that age where she can't hardly stand still. I love this age, though, and I love that I had the opportunity to get the photographs I did. Here are some of my favorites... Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
