Cash Lake walkway, Patuxent Wildlife Refuge, Maryland
Composed of 5 exposures this HDR image is of a floating walkway across Cash Lake, Patuxent Wildlife Refuge, Maryland. It was finally fixed last year which means that walkers can complete a comfortable circuit of the lake without having to double back on themselves. The walk way takes you across the lake onto a grassy peninsular on the way back to the Visitor Center. During the summer this view would be full of lily pads and blooms but at this time of year the lilies have retreated to their roots in the lake bed, along with the hibernating turtles and frogs. At this time of year the walk is cold and bare but still has its beauty.
