Had to take my folks to the airport at 5:45 AM. Decided to stop downtown on the way back to get in a good walk around the lake before the sun was out in force.
It’s full of life and activity. Although not so much at 7 AM on a Sunday morning in August.
So it felt refreshing to get out and about in public and at least be able to walk a few miles with almost no pain.
I usually never bring my DSLR with me on the trail as it’s just too much to carry and deal with when one’s primary mission is exercise. Typically I’m not on the trail until much later in the morning and the light is usually not that great for any shooting by then.
However this morning I wish I had brought it with me as the early morning light and shadows served up a different scene altogether. All these pictures were taken with my Nexus 6 phone camera.
It was relatively cool and pleasant. Only 76F/24C, going up to 103F/39C so I was glad to get on the trail early!
