Winter on the local pond

It just goes to show you that you never know what you’ll find when you leave the house with the camera in tow. When I stepped outside to start the afternoon photo journey I had little expectation of a good photo-op close to home. My time was limited so I did not plan to venture far from home. The local wildlife sanctuary¬†is my “go to” spot. I know that in winter the opportunities for something worthwhile is pretty hard to find. As I pulled into the parking area I could see this kite or parachute thing sailing away fifty feet or so in the air. When I got closer I could see this fella having a grand ole time skiing along on the frozen lake while being pulled by his kite. Sure looked like he was having the time of his life. I did talked to him after he was finished and he looked pretty tuckered out but had a smile from ear to ear. So it just goes to show you cold frigid windy days are good for something.
