Our neighborhood reservoir

This is the reservoir that is within walking distance from my house. On Sunday, hubby and I and the dog took a walk on the fireroad and came back along the lakeshore. The reservoir is low so we are able to walk along the shore. It not good that the reservoir is low but I do love to walk along the shore. When the water is at normal levels the water is right next to the tree line. During our walk I saw along the waters edge all these feathers. There is a line of white feathers all along the waters edge. I can only assume they are from the Canada Geese that frequently visit the lake. If anyone can id the feathers, in case I am wrong I would appreciate the help


If you click on this shot you get  a better view of the white feathers along the shore.
Feathers along the shore mostly small white feathers


As you can see the water level is low, we have had a dry summer.


A little bit of Autumn colors





My Goldie Girl just had a bath so no swimming allowed.

Some more pretty colors along the fireroad

Your Goldie Girl must have felt very sad for being not able to go swimming.

Hopefully she could enjoy the view as a compensation.

Just simply beautiful.

You picked the right spot for a stroll along the water front. That is such a pretty and peaceful looking area.

The place looks peaceful and I guess the water is already cold. Happy Wednesday!

Ah, you are starting to have a bit of fall color! Such a pretty spot for a walk. The feathers are interesting and a bit of mystery that there are so many.

When enlarged it makes me feel as though I am there, great photographs. Love the Autumn colours especially in the last pic. Have a good Wednesday, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Mary said...

Lovely reflections of the fall color, despite the water level! Our lake level is low too due to lack of rain~

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

This is all in your neighborhood? Lucky, lucky you!!! The foliage, the lake, the sweet fur baby, and even the feather...all such a wonderful treat for us visitors!!

My watery photos are now published if you'd care to stop by....bird watching.

Sue said...

Eileen, The colors in your area are about what Ohio is beginning to experience now. What a change from our trip to NC. I know what you mean about the dryness of the summer- rivers and streams here are very low, as well. I don't think the colors will be very vivid this year because of all the heat and lack of rain. So I'm glad I got to see some along the highway through WV and VA. The geese and other bird photos in your collages for Mary's party are gorgeous, too. Thanks for visiting from Outdoor Wed.

I'm sorry the water level is so low, but the fall colors around the lake are beautiful & that blue sky is an added bonus.
Wonderfully captured!

OH my goodness --- what a fantastic set of shots :) Such a neat reservoir to live close to and so glad Goldie Girl had her picture taken - so fresh and so clean! (maybe a swim another day?) ;)

Just love the fall colors and the high cirrus clouds...

Ann said...

You got the shore all to yourself. The feathers , is that normal or excessive?

lisaschaos said...

What a lovely place to explore. :0) Too bad the waters down low and I bet your girl was sad that she couldn't swim, lol.
