Lake Isabella is a twenty-eight acre body of water situated in a Hamilton County park about fifteen miles north east of Cincinnati. The Little Miami River traverses the park and most of the public areas are located on a strip of land between it and the lake.
The first stop I made was at the boat house, a beautiful building where one can dock, bird watch, fish or just sit and enjoy the view. As you’ll see in my photos, I was fixated by the fence railing along the dock. I can’t really explain why, but I was drawn to the rugged look of the posts.
Up Next: More of Lake Isabella Park.
Void is my favorite! Again, so jealous! Bravo, Seth! Great photos as always! xo
You’re quite welcome! It’s such a beautiful place! I am living vicariously through your photos! 🙂
Beautifully lonely images.
Thank you. 🙂
The captions are perfect!
Something about a frozen lake is oddly calming. Frozen spider is a great picture. I’m curious as to what’s happening Keeping It Real. It looks like a splash of something falling into the water, but it looks almost like a splash that was frozen before it sunk back into the lake.
It’s one of two fountains they use to keep part of the lake unfrozen. I saw that in the background and am not sure what it is. It is not there in the other picture I took right before it.
Interesting. I actually never heard of fountains being used to keep part of a lake unfrozen. Learn something new every day. Thanks.
I assume that is what they were using them for. I’m just guessing. 🙂
Nice! The lake appears to be drained down a few foot for winter as some are in Michigan.
John, not sure. 🙂 Thanks.
WOW! Just flippin WOW! Seriously I would have your pictures framed and on every wall in my home! Talented you most definitely ARE!
Sandi, thanks so much. Thank is very kind of you.
Now this is my kind of place. I think I would prefer it without the ice though. Really nice photos. Really.
Thanks so much. You could always walk out on the ice. might be some interesting smells out there.
Hmmmm. I don’t know about that. That ice stuff is kind of slippy slidey.
These are all very nice, but I like the first two best. The color and texture of the ropes are eye-catching.
Love the first three pictures.
Ohhh so pretty. I like the looks of this place. Goose tracks is my fav! When i walked my dog when it snowed I tried to get her to walk on the un-shoveled parts of the sidewalk, but she pulled against the leash to get back on the clear paths. Such a diva. But her little paw prints are so cute! lol.
Diva indeed. 🙂 My dogs love the snow. 🙂 Thanks Tasha.
Yes, mind the gap! All da best, Albert..
Really like “In Line”! Well done!
Thx so much.
I love the rope detail ones in particular. Would love some more of those – the texture of rope that is weathered like this is so satisfying in a photo! (that sounds weird but it’s right in my head).
Thanks Carole. I get what you are saying.
Blue Day, Aged, Void … my fans, though, they are are really good.
Thanks John. 🙂
Favourite shots – In Line, In Between and Ripple Effect 🙂
Thanks so much. Hope all is well in Wales.
Those posts are great, so much texture and the suggestion of history.
🙂 Thank you so much. 🙂
Well since your About me comments is closed I’ll post it here 😛
http://lucilx.wordpress.com/2013/02/07/rescued-by-the-prinze-very-inspiring-blog-nominee/ You have been nominated by me for an inspiring blog 😀
Thanks Lucil. Yeah, I had to close it because there were too many. When I tried to reply to each post, it would take several minutes for it to go through. 🙂
Ooo got it! Well I nominated you because I love your photos 😀
Nice! The second one is my favorite! xxx
Thanks. 🙂 Glad you like that one.
Very attractive. The spider shape in the ice is fun.
Well spotted details and well done photos.
Thanks anisjarossi. 🙂
You live in a such a lovely world! ‘Void’, ‘Aged’, ‘Blue Day’ – they are all incredibly beautiful images.
Thanks. 🙂 It’s no Ireland (so beautiful) but it’s lovely in its own way.
Very Lovely 😉 Beatiful pics!
Though you are drawn to the posts, I am drawn to the thawing snow. Kudos
Thanks so much. :)….
Amazing you make ordinary, often bleak settings look beautiful.
I went to buy a calendar from your store but you only seem to have one kind that can just show one picture! Do you have a 12-month calendar in which I can hand-pick 12 of my favorites?
I went to buy a calendar but there was only one option – a calendar with ONE picture. Do you have one that has a 12-month, 12-picture option?
If you go here: http://www.cafepress.com/sethsnap/9540098 and look at the bottom the last five have multiple photos. Thanks!
It is a comfort to wake up to the simplicity of your work. You are a master of composition and keen at titling. Love the order of everything.
The sharp cobalt blue against the grays. Really nice.
I am the rope that twisted and turned to hold you straight and up, no movements no turns, because of me..I go around and round and touch each one , connect to form a railing with wooden post..get turn and old, but still I hold as long as I am..I control 😉
Beautiful. Thanks kalabalu
Void & Blue day … is my pick out of this amazing bunch. You have given me .. some great idea here.
Thanks! Love how you bring out a little bit of color in every shot.
really like how you concentrated on the fence railing…makes for a great series!
I am used to going to this lake in the summer when it is warm and crowded!
Nice. I am going to check it out again come spring time.
Looking forward to seeing your pictures Seth. http://www.segmation.com
In Line Post Dancing 😀
Lovely cool shots Seth .
Thanks so much poppytump.
Frozen spider makes me think, gee, should I really be out here taking photos?
Yes but rest assured, I was not on the ice. 🙂
Love the ropes. Just love them.
Thanks so much. Glad to see I wasn’t crazy for being drawn to them.
Not crazy at all
It makes you feel like you’re there— and there’s more?
Yep. I still have two more articles.
Seth, simply wood and yet so beautiful.
Beautifully observed! Why is it called Lake Isabella?
I don’t know. I can’t find much info on it. I’ll keep looking.
Love the blue! Thanks for liking my Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf! You should try making it, you will never go back to regular meatloaf again.
I will. 🙂 Thanks.
I write an article on the asteroid Photograhica in symbolism with photography, I’d be curious to know where Photographica in your heaven of birth
I don’t understand much of this article. How do I determine my chart? My day is 8-3-73. opps the french do day first 3-8-73 (Aug 3)
I found the asteroid Photographica lies in conjunction Mars gives a great motivation for the opposition Uranus/Moon photo because you beings very independent and very original nature which had to surround himself with lots of friends. It is stated by mercury the movement, many travel, communication and dissemination. March and Photographica at Saturn sextile can serve your professional life
For my article only the last three article ar the translator by the main page. Otherwise copied the link and sent in the translator…
