Springfield Lakes

Raw file converted in Bridge then some PS2 work

For some reason when I look at this photo, I always think of drowning, don’t know why and there is nothing sinister about why, I just think that it may be because they say drowning is the calmest way to die?

A marker buoy on the lake at Springfield in the misty pre dawn light.

Somehow I deleted this image from my gallery which was a bit of a bummer as it was one of my most viewed images :-(

  • Hey is that you Byron? lurking around in the shadows there?
    How ya been?
    Got some news that you might relate to…we’ve just had our 15y/o and one of our 7y/o twins twins diagnosed with Asperges.

    And all this time we thought that we were just bad parents !

    Deleting this photo had to have a one of those Oh, crap! moments. It’s simply gorgeous in its simplicity. And congrats on the well-deserved feature!

  • Crap was the reaction when I realised it wasn’t there anymore.
