School's Back, Summer is Over
Lens: DA 55-300 PLM Camera: KP Photo Location: Liberty, Maine ISO: 500 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F9

The swimming float on Steven's Pond where local kids take swim lessons.
Empty even in the sun and 88 degree heat. Kids started school here this week so summer looks to be over, high temperatures not withstanding.
KP and PLM SOOC and cropped only.

It was strange as when I stopped by, I expected the small parking lot to be full. A few cars from kayakers and an elderly couple was sunbathing. I am considering going up to swim there right now as it is muggy and hot again today. 90+ temp and humidity.
