Travel Thursday.

Over the weekend, my friend Emily and I picked a place on the map and decided to meet up there for the day.  We grabbed our guys and some floaties to take off for our own lake for the day.  I’d share where this location is except then it wouldn’t be ours anymore now, would it?  My best suggestion is check out a map and pick a spot.  Start an adventure 🙂

We had to take some backroads so it’s a good thing Emily and Matt have a truck that can cruise over anything!

The clouds looked like they were coming in so we weren’t sure what sort of weather we’d end up with.

But we kept going and ended up with a lake stealing the only sunshine of the day.  We had awesome weather and it was fun to float while watching the storm pass by.

It was beautiful.  We even saw a beaver swimming playfully around.

Happy place.

Walking on a Dream.

Some days there is no rhyme or reason for the beautiful weather but when it’s upon you, there’s no reason not to indulge.  One day while Chelsea and I were in North Lake Tahoe, we came across a pond with reflections like no other.  The key to photographing these was to find a pool of water protected from the larger body of water.  This way the water was still enough to capture the reflections beautifully.

We took turns snapping photos of each other because every angle seemed to have a new appeal.  It’s very easy to create these reflection photos in the right settings.

Freaky Friday.

IMG_3901OK, it’s not actually freaky but thank god it’s Friday.  It was supposed to be a short week, how did it seem so long?  Anyway, Chels and I went up to Marin on Sunday to have dinner with her family.  We had such a good time!  I snapped a few photos on our way North because the weather was just too perfect.
