The report below from Lake of the Pines Management explains the weird color. "Many have noted the lake becoming greener, we in management are very much aware of the lake condition and on top of it. Sometimes despite our best efforts, Mother Nature has a mind of her own. We have what appears to be a mild to moderate planktonic algae bloom which we do not believe presents any health risk.

Artistic Real Estate Photography

said on June 22nd, 2016 filed under: Localism, Real Estate Nuts and Bolts

Turn all the Interior Lights on, day or night. Consider the Time of Day even for interior shots.  Some homes simply do not show well in morning photos.  Some homes get too much late afternoon glare. You will probably need...Continue Reading!
