The fog was so thick on our walk today that you could not see the other side of the lake. Eerie, and beautiful.

A lakescape of Radnor from April. One redbud blooms purple on the far shore.
This is the south shore of Radnor Lake, taken from the spillway last week when there was still snow on the ground. Today, while most of the rest of the country is dealing with massive snowfall, there is not one flake in Nashville. Punxutawny Phil may not be able to get out of his hole this year for the snow piled on top of it.
Yesterday’s Radnor walk was very cold and icy, but worth it. We gingerly walked where the sun hadn’t melted the ice, being careful not to be run over by the joggers! What kind of glue do they have on the soles of their shoes?
We have walked by this hill at Radnor a hundred times, but conditions were never right to produce this sight until this week. There had to be a combination of winter, fog burning off the lake, a clear sky, and timing so that the sun was coming up but still obscured by the hill. Also, in my opinion, you have to have a camera with you, so you don’t hate yourself for the rest of your life!
