Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

Phoenix Lake Marin County, CA

Caught the moment!

Back in October, I had the pleasure to visit the Bay Area, in particular–Phoenix Lake which is in Marin County.  Never would have found this hidden treasure on my own.  Special thanks to @BirdGalAlcatraz for sharing this spot with me:)

This lake is a reservoir–no swimming allowed, but you can fish.  Odd concept to me–but seems to work for this beautiful area with minimal impact by human kind.

The day was rainy and overcast–we were fortunate to catch a break in the clouds and enjoy some dry moments.  The trees dripping in moss certainly are not something we have in Sacramento!  We are much too dry for that.

 

Dripping in Moss

 This little stairway caught my eye with the way it twisted through the hillside…don’t know where it goes, except up!

One aspect I appreciate much with photography is the difference a little perspective can make…

Just a bit

Broader View

 

One step closer

 

A bit more green

 

A few more views from the day…

A bit damp

 

From side to side

 

A lack of focus

One thing I know is that I’d love to revisit this spot in the spring and see what wonders are present then:)
