Carneros Sunrise

Rolling hills and greeining up grass define the terrain of Greens Peak.

Just outside of Green’s Peak in a beautiful peaceful little lake called Carneros Lake. While it’s difficult to fish from the shore due to its shallow depths and many reeds, it is popular to launch a canoe and fish from its waters.

Reeds line the edge of Carneros Lake under stormy skies.

But we go for the peaceful allure, the sunset / sunrise from the water’s edge, and the numerous waterfowl that frequent its water.

We loved watching the osprey fish… diving from the sky, crashing into the water and pulling up fish. I should have brought my big lens, but got a couple shots I had to crop. I’ll have to go back with the big lens next time.

When I wasn’t enjoying the osprey, coots, or blue heron I was entertained by the little chipmunks gathering pinecones.

Carneros Lake is beautiful respite and peaceful environment with free entertainment to boot. I can’t wait to go back.
