A lake shaped just like a dragon!

Can you see the dragon? I can! I did this custom map of Lake Nacimiento, also referred to as the Dragon Lake because it is shaped like a dragon. It's located in California near Paso Robies. Interestingly, Nacimiento means "beginning or source" in Spanish, which makes sense.

I painted this map for a very nice lady who has a cabin on the lake and plans on hanging the map over the fireplace. I received an email from her after the map was delivered and here is what she said. 

"Hi Larry,
We got the map and it is absolutely stunning. I can't wait to hang it over the fireplace!
Thanks again, we are so pleased. It's truly a work of art."

I think that's enough said, check- out my maps...LeoLakes.com

Steady, Jump, Flap, Soar

It's amazing of the beauty that you see near a big stream! I was on the water last weekend and was lucky to photograph a great blue heron. Check out this majestic bird relaxing on a branch over the water. He was obviously comfortable with folks coming near, however just a second later he decided to take flight and this is when I clicked four photos.



At home, using software, I trimmed the heron out of the background of each of the four photos. These photos kind of show how a 5 pound bird takes flight. The result of these photos is what I call, "Four steps to flight, steady, jump, flap, and soar." 
Four Steps To Flight

I think that it came out cool, so I decided to share the result. Remember, get away from the big screen and get on a big stream!
