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.
Meadows, lakes, and gorges. What a beautiful day!
Where is your next adventure taking you?
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.

As you know, once the colors start turning they go so fast. Right now the colors are in their prime so of course we ventured out to capture the gorgeous transition. These snaps were so easy to shoot, just let mother nature show you her bright side. When scouting for future shoots, we not only look for lighting but for beautiful settings to paint the backdrop.
My favorite part of having our blog is the creative freedom we have to do whatever we want. My art is photography and I find no greater joy than to wander on a photo adventure!

For the last weekend of summer, I hit the Lake (Oroville, since we all went to Chico together) with some close friends. It was the perfect way to spend a few days in the middle of nowhere where we could swim, relax, and enjoy some downtime. Although it rained one day, we did get pretty lucky with the weather. We were able to swim daily and make “family” meals each day.

The annual houseboat trip has come and gone but it was fantastic. Now bring on Fall!
