Relax! You're at the Lake!

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026




 While attending a home inspection of my buyer’s, I happened to go outside for a moment to enjoy Fishhawk Creek, the property's boundary that also feeds Fishhawk Lake. This view presented itself to me. I didn’t have my camera, so I told the home inspector (who is also a homeowner at Fishhawk Lake and a friend) about it and he said, "Go, get your camera! We’ll be fine.”

I live just minutes away and hoped that the lighting would still be the same when I came back. I got lucky as the stillness of the waters hadn’t changed.


This photo now graces the cover for my iphone so that when people ask me about Fishhawk Lake, I can readily show them one of the many views. I have even made it into a kitchen towel, as well as notecards, with the saying, “Relax! You’re at the Lake!”


This is for the 2017 ActiveRain Photography Contest of Dick Greenberg's, and the category is Travel/Places as there are many people who want to come visit Fishhawk Lake after all of the years I have been blogging about it!

That is simply breathtaking, Gayle. What a perfect photo to use to personify life at Fishhawk Lake! And I was going to suggest some greeting cards, too but you are already there!!

Yup, Jeff, as you can see, running back to get my camera was worth it. And I do Christmas cards, too with a past winter photo of the lake in all its glory.

Hi Gayle - That is a wonderful photo - it made me say "I wish I had taken it"! Interesting about the towel - you can put photos on almost anything these days - we recently put one of my Paris pictures on a shower curtain for our guest bath.

Thanks for another contest entry!
