Default Clear Lake

Most every State has a lake called Clear Lake. In fact some have more than one. Oregon is no exception in that regard. The only difference is Oregon's Clear Lake is.... well.... clear.



The old stump or post you see in the 3rd image is about 8 feet tall and it's top is about 4 feet below the surface.

Beautiful lake and great shots. It must be really nice to go boating there.

(It reminds me somewhat of our Silver Springs.)

Thanks Steven. I spent the 1st 25 years as a Michigander and my family had several Florida vacations. One I still remember is going out in Silver Springs in a glass bottom boat, throwing large wads of rolled-up Wonder Bread overboard, and watching those big fish swim under the boat to gobble up the bread-balls. It's a beautiful place. Cypress Gardens is another fond memory.

It was my 1st time there and I stood on or photographed around that dock for about half an hour. Every time another 1st time visitor showed up you would hear them utter "Wow. Unbelievable". Like the saying goes; pictures don't do it justice. Thanks for the comment lomitamike.

Just to keep you updated - you may be interested to know that Silver Springs is now a state park, and Cypress Gardens is now part of the new Lego Land theme park.

I'm very happy to hear Silver Springs has the protections afforded it by becoming a State park. And I hope the Lego people take good care of Cypress Gardens. Thanks for the update.

PS- My older brother, a now retired Michigander spends much of the winter in Florida. I'm sure you've heard of the Snowbird phenomenon. He and his wife like the panhandle area. My grandparents spent winters on Big Pine Key.

Yes, Alan. We are all very aware of Snowbirds. the population of the state increases sharply from November to April. I have lived in the Panhandle, in South Florida, and now in west central Florida. Each section has a regular influx from the north in the cold seasons.

That water is neat-looking. That'd be fun to shoot in all kinds of light.
