During a morning walk along the James River it amazed me how much the river has changed since the spring. The water is lower and there’s a lot of aquatic vegetation that wasn’t there just a few months ago.
We took a quick break from hiking to get a better view of the lake and noticed this little patch of sunlight right in front of us. The mid-day sun didn’t offer any photo-worthy views of the entire lake but this contrast in lighting interested me.
A bird enjoys the safety offered by perching atop the last post at the end of a dilapidated pier.
Cypress trees creep out into the water. The early morning sun begins to warm their trunks and nourish their leaves as a new day begins.
Life begins to stir among the cypress trees as the sun slowly peeks over the horizon.
Two colorful buildings break the monotony of the grey and brown cityscape surrounding them.
Early morning fog clings to the far shore of the bayou.
I’ve driven by this sign many times but never noticed the fine print. When I finally saw it I had to laugh.
