Default Then and Now

These two shots were taken at one of the coves at Milford Lake, near my home. I took the first one this morning. All the area covered with the pale green plant cover is normally underwater. The second shot, of the same trees, was taken a couple of years ago. (A little earlier in the morning!) The dead trees endure!
This year the level of the lake is considerably under conservation level since this area and the watershed area for Milford Lake has been experiencing a severe drought. It's quite a contrast from last summer when the lake was about 16 feet over normal pool area.

The second photo is one of my all time favorites. It was very early in the morning, with patches of light low lying fog-just perfect for that moody look. I mainly took the second picture yesterday to point out how much difference a low water level makes. Last summer the same area was about 16 feet OVER the normal level, so some of the dead trees at the rear finally bit the dust. This area is rich in wildlife--deer, raccoon, herons, and in the winter a number of bald eagles are usually perched in the dead trees. If the water level doesn't come back up before winter, that group may have to find another spot on the lake where there actually is water for them to fish.
