Waiting on Fall

You can tell by the rust color on the cypress leaves peaking out behind the spanish moss it won' be long till a cool front blows through the swamps. After this long hot summer it will be a welcome change to the weather.    For the past two days rain has been falling over Lake Martin. Rain and humidity are what its all about in this subtropical part of Louisiana. Yesterday morning I traveled to Lake Martin between the burst of rain and I was able to get this photo of the great heron. It such a magical place.
