Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay

Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 27 July 2020 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

I've delayed posting this image for some time, changing the post date numerous times. I had noticed just yesterday that the date this photo was taken was one year ago today. Last year's temperatures were more moderate compared to the heat wave we've been experiencing the last week.

Photo captured July 27, 2019 at the Lake Carina Forest Preserve in Gurnee, Illinois.

Perfect title for this image, Steven. We've been watching the US temps these last days, thankful that we're not suffering such heat here (where we're still hovering around 60 F in the shade most days). Hopefully you'll see a break soon!

a very beautiful place, pleasant, quiet, where to settle down to rest with why not a book and a refreshing drink

I like your framing and the subject shown but I admit I still have trouble accepting sepia in pictures.

Ben voilà, maintenant j'ai cette chanson dans la tête pour la journée !!! :-))
Ce banc est pile poil au bon endroit pour faire une pause au bord de ce lac.
En France aussi il fait de plus en plus chaud depuis quelques années, nous ne sommes que fin juillet et déjà le jardin est tout sec.... il faudrait consommer beaucoup trop d'eau pour garder un jardin bien vert ! Et ce n'est qu'un début.... la planète se réchauffe c'est certain !
Bonne journée Steven

Nice bench to enjoy the view !

I could wish this one a happy anniversary! I like the tan toning. the lake seems calm and placid and out in total wilderness until you notice the transmission towers along the left edge

That is a very nice shot with the lovely tones. Such a nice relaxing spot to sit and enjoy the view.

A really nice view and it would certainly be a nice place to sit with hopefully a cool breeze. It has been hot here the whole month of July with temperatures above 90 degrees just about every day.

I like your processing on this - I think it actually expresses the heat...

The sepia is very nice, a soft tone, giving this a relaxing feel. Looks like a good spot to sit and think while listening to water lap around the dock.

I see no reason why you have been delaying posting the photo. It's a beautiful picture.
The conversion to sepia tone was an excellent option.

Le réchauffement de notre bien aimé planète est une réalité, malheureusement... et les responsables politiques de tous les pays qui le nient, sont irresponsables !
