Photographer's Note

St. Cloud was established in the 1860's and 70's on the shores of East Lake Tohopekaliga, as a military retirement town for the soldiers from the great War Between the States, or Civil War. The lake front has always been the center for events and recreation, and in the past 10-20 years has seen a great deal of renovation and beautification to the park, marina and swimming area (free of alligators). This jetty has been shored up at the point with sand bags and a small gazebo was built for shelter and parties. Our 4th of July fireworks are also dispatched from this point.

This cloudy day didn't see many visitors to the point, and the air was fresh and clean and quiet in between storms. I like getting away sometimes, and I thought that the lonliness of the area and the empty path had a certain peace to them.

I did a simple one step photo fix (cheated) in the Jasc Paint Shop, and cropped and sharpened. I also cloned out a light post. Please comment, critique and workshop this photo - I'm not entirely happy with it and would love your imput.

Added to the scavenger hunt, path with a vanishing point.
