Ah, the goodness of water. It's cool, it's refreshing and it's fabulous.
It's also this week's theme for the Friday My Town Shoot-Out.
We have a couple of lakes in Las Vegas, Lake Mead being the largest and most well known
recreational spot for fishing, boating and camping.
There's also Lake Las Vegas which is a semi-private lake for homeowners in that community as well as the guests of the surrounding hotels.
The photo below depicts a view of Lake Mead as seen by me just about two weeks ago.
I did a little bit of editing with a photoshop plug in.
The effect is called midnight which casts a darker look to the entire image and adds a bit of a soft glow.
I like the way it turned out.
Here's another photo of Lake Mead using the same effect.
Now I'm going into my archives to retrieve a photo of Lake Mead from Last year.
I think I may have posted this one before.
My favorite place to go in the summer is to Laughlin because the river is so clear
and beautiful and much prettier than the Lake.
The lakes in the desert are much different than the lakes I grew up around.
There are no grassy picnic areas to pull the boat up to,
nonetheless, I still enjoy being in the water and just drifting along feeling the serenity of nature.
