The weather was gorgeous on Saturday - sunny, breezy, hot - the perfect summer weekend. And based on that, I decided to hit the Deer Lake boardwalk first thing Sunday morning before the temperature climbed and literally everyone and their dog was out there with me.
The sun never materialized on Sunday. I walked around a practically abandoned boardwalk in a cool light drizzle. The sky was white-grey and a challenge for me to meter. The lake is beautiful on bright sunny days, but it's dramatic and moody in shades of grey.
