I took this shot on a particularly nasty day on Lake Couer d' Alene. I have envisioned this shot for several years and was finally able to make it happen. The yellow/green hue near the shoreline is pollen. I am lucky to live in such a beautiful and geologically diverse area. I never run out of things to shoot. This particular tree is in the middle of city beach and NIC beach on the lake and is generally a very popular spot to hang out. Fortunately, I was the only one on the lake that day, as is the case most of the time when the weather is bad. I am a firm believer in beating the weather. Some of my best photographs have been taken when no one else wanted to be outside. Get outside and enjoy it!
