Pre-birthday dinner with Anne Shurley at Lake Burton. It is such a beautiful setting. I love the colors of this lake. I have photographed it in summer, fall, winter, and spring and it never disappoints me. Even in the dead of winter, there’s color!

We ate out on the upper covered deck. It will be open through October, and they also have a fireplace—a wonderful atmosphere.

And now, we can talk about fall since it officially begins in the middle of next week.
