Photo Spot Details

An urban park that has a great variety of photographic opportunities. Wet-lands, marsh areas, a lake, a dam, wooden boardwalks and bridges providing access throughout. Late afternoon sun provides drama and shadows as seen in the featured image. Tripods are no problem, but the mobility and flexibility of hand-held will likely get you the shot you are after.

The second photo features some of the marsh area upstream of the lake. The lake is home to many Canada Geese like the one shown in the third photo. And one fortunate afternoon I happened upon the great blue heron in the fourth photo; fishing in the weir that outflows around the dam – eyes keenly focused on his next strike!
