I'm lucky enough to have in-laws with a lake house on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. It's a gorgeous location, and it's always a relaxing time. So, during the summer, we typically spend at least one weekend at Lake Winnipesaukee so that we can see them. Last summer, I took my camera up with me for the first time, and I took tons of photos. Today, I'm sharing some of the nature shots I got throughout our time there.
A Fun Boat Ride
My in-law's home is on an island, so you have to take a boat to get there. I grew up next to a lake, and I would go boating with my neighbors all the time. So, I absolutely love being on a boat. It's always a joy. It was my son's first time on the boat. He was still very little, so he didn't register too much of it. He didn't have much of a reaction for that reason, but seeing him in his little life jacket was so cute. His dad held him, and I got some photos. Since my son was so little, we went slowly, which meant I was able to get pictures of the loon that showed up!
One of the best parts of spending a weekend at Lake Winnipesaukee (besides being able to listen to the waves) is seeing the amazing and colorful sunsets. They're always beautiful. My in-laws have a screened-in porch, and even from there, they're a sight. We'll often go down to the dock to watch them. I don't always enjoy this because their lake house (especially the dock) has quite a few spiders. But you can't deny the view!
I have a full gallery from that weekend at Lake Winnipesaukee if you're interested! If you find a photo you love, prints are available for purchase!
