Junk Photography?

It’s common in areas of rural America where I see how reluctant people are to discard their possessions (junk?) once they are no longer needed. When asked, many owners will respond by saying they want to keep what they have, never knowing if such might be needed later on. As a photo enthusiast this situation makes my life enjoyable, seeking such compositions.

A favorite photo location for me has always been one that involves lakes, rivers and wooded ponds. Philpott Lake near where we live is a perfect example. I’ve explored much of it’s 100-mile shoreline via canoe and kayak. Silently gliding past a flock of Wild Turkeys, moving through the woods is an experience I won’t forget. But, that’s another story. Here’s what I saw there recently.

I made this photo two days ago, from the overlook of Philpott Lake at the Army Corps of Engineers Visitor’s Center. It was a clear day, mid morning. I used my iPhone 7 Plus camera. The lake is a favorite of mine, and I’ve paddled canoes and kayaks along it’s 100 miles of shoreline. Colors are not as vibrant this year as I’ve seen them, but it’s not bad … at all.  As you can see below.
