    Was the lake named after Teddy or FDR James? I’m guessing the former? When you can make something as prosaic as a rest stop table look interesting, you must be doing something right. Mind you with a Rollei it is amazing how good they can make just about anything look…well spotted, as usual!
    Best Regards,

  • Brett, Thanks so much. It was named after Theodore (Teddy) since it was built under his time through the Salt River Project (SRP), with the dam completed in 1911. Other lakes along the Salt River are Apache, Canyon, and Saguaro, together they provide a major source of drinking water in this desert region. James

    Nicely spotted – and composed. Your exposure is spot on, not something that’s terribly easy with such dramatic light. My experience with this kind of shot in the past either had the roof totally blown out, or the picnic table completely darkened.

  • Geoff, Thanks for the comment. It is always a beautiful place to camp. James
