I took a short drive yesterday
Posted By: little laker, 10-09-2006, 11:47 PM

It was a grey and damp morning here yesterday, so I went for a 45 min drive with the camera, never leaving the pavement.

This old ghost village has always intreged me

Here's what the maintained version looks like

The weather started to clear up for this picture

This is Jewel Lake

Even the lilly pads are changing colour

And this building is the Greenwood BC City hall.

It was the court house / jail around 1900. It's said to be haunted by a ghost that hates the smell of coffee (or is it loves, the smell seems to arouse him)

I really like pix 4 and 5. Very moody and atmospheric. The lily pads changing colour is an interesting observation and well photographed. The transition in the seasons is striking in that photograph.

Where exactly did you shoot this photographs (town/city, state, etc?)

Thanks for sharing!

Looks as if you have clolor cast on numbers 2 and 3. What white balance setting did you use?

Sorry, I didn't notice Ole, I tried a few settings and it was the best that I could come up with with that natural light

I took the pictures close to Greenwood BC

And the lake pictures are taken at Jewel Lake
