Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Waking up to Views of the Lake

By
Real Estate Agent with Vernonia Realty 700512026

One of the many pleasures of waking up to a view of Fishhawk Lake from my bedroom is to see what is happening on the lake each morning.


You could have a glassy surface, with no ripples except for the occasional jumping fish. You could have the winds playing along the top, gently pushing mini waves to the water’s edge. Or, like today, you can have the cold air causing foggy films dancing across your lake landscape.

As with sunrises and sunsets, you can never have enough fog-on-the-water photos. Fishhawk Lake has it all--plain and simple!

Hey there lovely, I was happy to see this is the features this morning. I loved waking up and seeing the lake out of the great room windows of your house each morning. You are right...ever changing views with the mood of the weather.

Are these shots taken with your new camera? They are beautiful.

Tony, I love "gorgeous shots"--thanks!

Doug~I can tell that you've woken up to such a slice of paradise...it is really terrific to hear the morning birds and well...QUIET.

Rose, oh my gosh, you are SO right--photography heaven--now I gotta get busy figuring out how to use our camera!

William~ really???  I didn't think they were very good. I was hoping for more fog and less bright sun, but couldn't mess with it so I just let it be.

Phil, you made me laugh--thanks!

Debbie, I channel Thoreau on a regular basis. He even drew a "fishhawk" in an annotated version I have of his book Walden.

Roger~ask Debb and Mel if they had a chance to relax--that's the true test.

Fernando~maybe someday I can entice you to come here!

Mryl~mystical is always one of those adjectives I think personifies foggy mornings on Fishhawk Lake.

Roy~you would have fun taking pics here.

Michael...you made me blush. Thank you for those compliments.

Debb~finally broke out the new camera BRIEFLY! You are my true testament that I'm not lying when I say this is magical--still lovin' the GF/KS memories...more to come in September.

Kristin~many more thoughts of the day to come!

Richie~hysterical! Pack that backpack and fly on over! You'll get a natural "high" from being here!

Patricia~fog is one of my favorite things to view over water. It's instantly relaxing.

*Peg*~you KNOW you are invited!!

Hi Gayle,

There is only one word to explain this view....breathtaking. Thanks so much for sharing and have a lovely weekend. I love the fog as it gives just a little mystery to the picture.

Wonderful . . . I'm telling you, you must be channeling Thoreau when you write posts like this!!  Isn't it amazing how the same view is really never the same, even in the tranquil settings, just the hint of something -- like fog -- and the entire composition of the photo changes ;-)
