Lake Padden Sunrise Adventure

An early morning visit to Lake Padden. So close, and again spectacular. Very nice way to start off the year.

And The Snow Fell

Must say that I wasn’t expecting the snow to stick when it started falling yesterday. But as I watched out my window it just kept falling and falling. Sticking and then sticking some more. Then, overnight another dusting. So this morning, before I started in at my desk, I escaped down to take a few photos at Boulevard Park as the sun tried to break out to start the day officially.

Frozen Lake Padden

Inspired by photos from a fellow photographer recently, I made up my mind to head to Lake Padden this morning. Temperature at my place as hovering in the high 20s, so I knew it would be cold. But when I got up to Lake Padden the gauge in the car read 21 degrees. In addition, it didn’t take me long to see that the lake was frozen. Not just a little frozen. Thick ice. There was even a growing group of folks playing hockey on the lake. What a beautiful morning.
