Missing Water - Marsh Creek Lake

What does it look like when 8 feet of water are removed from Marsh Creek Lake?

If you have been visiting Marsh Creek State Park lately, you might have noticed, that there is a lot of missing water, and it looks very weird, to say the least.

This is a planned drawdown of 8 feet of water, to help the fishing habitat in the lake, and the water level should return to normal later in March.

After a Sunday afternoon walk with my niece and children, I decided to put together a series of photo blog enties, as I explored the new shoreline of the lake.

Many of the images captured, were done using High dynamic range (HDR) technique, which greatly expands the tonal range of traditional photography.

So please take a look at the unique scenery around the lake, when 8 feet of water are missing!

If you happen to know any of the history of the lake, prior to 1973, I would be very interested in hearing from you!
