Well with a complete dry patch with about 3 months of not even taking a photo I thought it was time to do something about it. So with some clouds around (around March i think it was) and finally having some spare time I headed out to the lakes. I drive past these a couple of times a week as they’re on the way to where I play basketball, and have always wanted to get in to see what they’re like in person. I love how we can have these magical locations that appear to be so isolated, yet they’re in the middle of suburbia.
I was struggling to find a composition I completely liked as all of these elements were in such close proximity to each other, and could very easily over crowd the image. There was no real way to utilize just one. I was tempted to lose the shoes and wander out into the water. But seeing the sludge on the bottom I thought best not to. I also like my feet glass and syringe free. In the end I gave this angle a go, and feel the elements are a bit more in balance. Combining with a nifty sky and some nice light from the sunset casting across the water.
