I think the weather has officially turned to winter now. This pool with it’s green water won’t be seeing anyone for a few months.
This is the dam at lake Elkhorn, in Columbia. This is the ususal flow there. It just sort of trickles though the center there.
After the hurricane this dam and the recent floods this lake was rushing over the entire width of the damn. A feature which is certainly intended by design. So just like any one who runs a respecable photo website, rather than showing you a picture of this really neat site, I am shoing you a picture of a normal day at the dam becasue I didn’t have my camera when it was flooding. Just believe me.. it was quite a sight.
This quaint picture looks like it could be from some eastern shore town but the sign gives away that it comes from a lake in Columbia. I was hoping to get away during lunch to go take some pictures of the setup for the Baltimore Grand Prix, but that will have to be next week. I did get away to the lake to take a few of these shots.
I went to Howard Community College (in Howard County) yesterday to take some pictures, but it began to rain almost as soon as I got there. So the only picture I could take was this. I’m not sure if it’s some sort of late early 70′s collegiate sculpture or if it’s a clever disguise for an hvac exhaust.
I hope everyone had an enjoyable President’s day and that the snow this morning was not too disruptive. (I’m sure that it wasn’t unless you are going through Howard county, where salt, based on the evidence found on the roads this morning, must be very hard to find.)
I found this creek near some power lines on my way home from work last week. Now that the sun sets a little later to coincide with afternoon rush hour, I’ve been able to get a few shots in here and there. However, it’s tough to find an unobstructed sunset near my office so I was happy to find this area, which will never be considered photogenic at any time of the day when the sun isn’t setting.
