The moods of Klamath Lake

A lake has many moods, many residents as well as those just passing through. Klamath Lake is a rich ecosystem which makes a person feel rich just being there. It is its own little paradise providing bountifully for many insects, fish, mammals, reptiles, and birds. We were especially fortunate to see it with a full moon and in two impressive thunderstorms.

Because of how much and how diverse it was for the photos, I am breaking them up. First are some of Klamath Lake's moods while I was there. Tomorrow will come one of the most interesting dragonfly photos I have ever gotten and finally another opportunity for painting at a river that runs into Klamath Lake.

Iam constantly amazed at your superior skill as a photographer, Betty. I love all the photos, but to be able to have a flying bird and the moon in the same shot is award winning. The night photo should be enlarged and hung on a wall.

Fascinating how you have captured this wonderful nature.

When I look at the last photo and look up into the sky, it's like a mirror of a crater lake...
