Whether it is a bobber caught on a branch, a trap swinging from a tree, or a whole houseboat that drifted in, humans always seem to leave their mark on the lake. I have found so much trash that it is disgusting and I refuse to photograph it. The subtle hints are what grab my attention.
Most of these are discovered when the lake is on a draw-down. I don’t mind as much the paths that are made by four wheelers and off road vehicles, as long as I am not seeing destruction. Some of them are actually picturesque. And occasionally, a good-natured human doesn’t leave a hint, but jumps out in full spirit and gives you the peace sign 🙂
