A visit to Twin Lakes (video)
July 06, 2013 • 3 Comments
It isn't really possible to describe the beauty and peacefulness of this place. Our home away from home, Twin Lakes, Washington. The lakes are located in the far northeast corner of Washington state nestled in the mountains and trees of the Colville Indian Reservation. We've been coming to this place to rest and regenerate for many years. Native residents have called these lands home for a millennia. Years ago the lakes inspired me to to capture the beauty in photographs. You could say these Twin Lakes were my original muse. As I have so many times before, I was on the lake just after sunrise with my camera. It was a perfect morning. I immediately saw two bald eagles, a pair of common loons with their babies, and the glow of the morning light was perfect. The air was crisp and clean. And I sat on the boat and listened to the ripple of water and calm call of the birds. I decided to try something new and test the video features of my camera. The volume is a bit low, so you may need to turn it up a bit. The video won't win any awards, but just maybe I can share with you a moment of that perfect morning on North Twin Lake.
I've been visiting Twin Lakes since the early 60's when we spent a vacation with family and friends. Instill travel there whenever possible. Your pictures and video brought back lots of great memories. Thank you!
Just watched. Thanks. Inspiring and beautiful. Loved the baby loons. And were those loons I heard too?
