early December lake; the Canadian Armada


I'm planning to make a series of this same view towards the north end of Lake Kittamaqundi as the seasons, the weather and developments around the lake transform it. This shot is from late in the morning on December 1. It looks like one of the last unspoiled views in Howard County, but any readers from out of the area might like to know that my vantage point for this view is on a paved exercise path in front of the Columbia Sheraton; behind me is our semi-vibrant lakefront with its restaurants, dock, paddleboats; out of view behind the trees on the left is one of the nearby townhouse condominium communities; and Route 29 lies beyond the belt of trees on the far shore to the right. (Traffic on 29 is audible from this point and even visible at this time of year.)
