I was surprised that there was still snow on the ground when we made our trip to Donner Lake. The area around the lake wasn’t as pretty though. The gray snow that still surrounded some houses was negligible. We did stop at the same overlook and, wow, what a difference 3 months can make. Snow still capped the mountains, and the scene was beautiful.
The overlook was the only place that we visited before. This time we went into Donner Lake Memorial State Park. It was here that I had an opportunity to play with a crystal orb. Now that was fun. It took some getting used to, but I was happy with the results. A crystal orb is now on my list.
What did I learn? I believe I’m shooting with more confidence. I’m also getting a great deal of positive feed back on my images, and waiting for the five black and white prints I ordered. I do hope there are no surprises when I open the box. Meaning, I want them to look as they do on my computer!
Here’s a glimpse of Donner Lake and the State Park.

Very nice photos and close ups! The place looks so calm and peaceful… (and sunny! we don’t have a lot of days like this in Ireland, haha)
I love the orb photos!!
Thank you Mercedes. If you ever travel to the U.S., try to make it to California. Your pictures of Ireland are beautiful.
Nice photos, Anne. I think one of my favorites is the dead tree relection.
Thanks Donna. And thanks for visiting my blog.
