A trip to Silver Lake - half the way to Mt. Baker - and a new camera. My trusty Canon has been having aches and pains for quite some time now - and it was time to move up. I spent some time shopping and finding just what I wanted - a Nikon CoolPix P600 - it zooms to 258X - the Canon only to 140X.
It was a cloudy, spattering rain kind of day. The reflections in Silver Lake were spectcular.
There were Canada Geese enjoying a stroll on the lawns
And I just had to try out the new zoom - this goose is at 35x
And at 250x - enjoying a nibble on the grass
They decided it was a grand idea to take a swim
Standing in a shallow spot
Taking a bath
The new camera even captured the rain drops splashing back up on the lake surface
It was a wonderful day at Silver Lake
