When I'm feeling empty, going to the lake seems to take the edge off. A little.
Tonight under the full moon was one of those nights to experiment. I set the camera on a tripod for a long exposure and let the timer open the shutter. While it was counting down I walked along the beach a bit and fired my flash in hand a couple of times out over the water when I heard the shutter open.
I think that's what is so appealing about the lake - at times it's quiet enough to hear the shutter open and close from down the beach...
