Four Seasons: Landscape Photographs of Yardley's Picturesque Lake Afton

Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend
(Carol King)

Lake Afton sits about two miles from my home in Yardley, Pennsylvania (lower Bucks County).  Most days, I drive past and admire this picturesque and peaceful spot.  Each year, I photograph Lake Afton in different seasons, lighting conditions and times of day:  with fresh snow in winter, budding dogwoods of spring, soft mist on a summer morning, and colorful foliage in autumn.

I have taken the photographs in this post over several years, and I hope there will be many new images in the years to come.  Until recently, summer was the missing piece of my collection.  Thank you to the Friends of Lake Afton (FOLA), a non profit organization which keeps the lake safe and looking beautiful. In recent years, the lake has had a problem with algae, particularly in the warm summer months.  FOLA has taken many steps manage this situation so that folks can enjoy the lake throughout the year.
