Canadian Geese at Veterans Park - Watts Bar Lake

As you can tell these Canadian Geese photos at Veterans Park were taken in the fall.
I have been posting duck photos from our recent trip to Florida. Thought I should drop back and post some from East Tennessee.

I was spending a lot of time at Veteran's Park until we bought our house in Rockwood.
Now I don't live in a motel half of the week (Woo-Hoo!), instead live in Rockwood half the week. The motel was very close to Veterans Park in Spring City, Tennessee, so I usually spent my mornings at the park.
Since Rockwood is 10 miles closer to my work than Spring City I am not sure how much I will go to Veterans Park. I have not been there since we were in the motel.

Such beautiful shots, esp with the colorful trees! I love the shot of the geese taking off in flight from the water.

What a beautiful setting. Just lovely to look at this Friday morning. Enjoy your weekend.

Well your Florida pictures are nice--but there's nothing like East TN--especially in the fall.

You'll have to find a park closer to Rockwood now...

Have a great day.
Hugs,

Looks like a great place for the first spring picnic. Spring still seems far away here though.

The area looks great in fall and it must be a magnet for water fowl in spring.

Wonderful photos. I love the one where they are all starting to take off at the same time!

Rose said...

I would like to just get lost in these pictures...love the first one and the one with the geese either taking off or landing.

Pam said...

I love the first picture because the geese are all in a row and having fun . Great shots.

George said...

You caught a perfect convoy of geese in that first picture. Neat!

These are beautiful shots. I'd like to go back to Watts Barr Lake sometime. I've been in the area twice for the Japanese Quilt show in the fall at Athens, TN.
