A Texas lake in the summer.


**Not much time for writing comment this week because we are getting ready for a Wyoming and Montana trip. Yea!!! I will be checking your posts and comments as often as possible, but will have no internet some of the time, so I'll catch up when we get back.

Planning a meet-up with Aminus3 photographer TwoJays around the 22nd-23rd, so check out her blog. She will probably get something posted long before I get home.

Wish I could have such a location near to my home! I can only see, at times, wonderful colours in the sky when the sun starts setting....but nothing even close to your shot!
(We finally got rain today!....and another earthquake,too!)

@Japanalia: I'm glad you got some rain, but not another earthquake. I hope you didn't get damage.

Gorgeous shot Barbara, had any rain yet?

@Curly: Thanks Curly. We had about a half inch of rain last Sat. morning, and one day of less than 100 F after 40 of over, but it's back to the same again. The forecast for today is for 109 F. If all goes well we should be in Yellowstone tomorrow where it is 77 F right now! ;-)

The toning definitely coveys the feeling of heat. I hope you get refreshed by getting in cooler temperatures on your trip.
