Grant Lake Sunset


On Monday evening D. and I went up on the flanks of Mt. Hamilton to Grant Lake in Joseph D. Grant County Park to get some sunset shots.  Here are some of the pics I took.


Grant Lake.





Water smartweed grows at the lake's edge.





A Forster's tern cruises the lake for an evening snack.





Many-flower tobacco.





A bone and foot from a Canada goose are among the remains of a creature's recent dinner on the bank of the lake.





Gumweed.





The setting sun.





A falcon is silhouetted against the evening sky.





Quiet ripples spread across the lake after a Forster's tern dives for fish.





One of a pair of Forster's terns circling the skies.





A great egret prepares to land in a tree on the lake shore.





Large flocks of birds swarm the sunset skies in preparation for roosting for the night.





Pink sky.





A darkling beetle clambers over a stick.





The dying light turns the lake orange.





Sunset at Grant Lake.
