One of the places locally we like to go for family outings is during the summer is the pond at the now defunct Trojan Nuclear facility. There are lots of walking paths, wildlife, picnic tables, restrooms, fishing and a little picturesque bridge. One day last July We managed to get there pretty early in the day, and the light shining through the trees and on the water was just beautiful.
Early Morning sun Shines through the forest canopy at Trojan pond, near Goble, Oregon—creating a lovely ray of lens flare orbs as it sparkles on the rippling pond water and making grasses and bugs alike glow tranquilly.
Love the colorful refraction in the lens flare in this photo.
