December Review - 2012

As a new month begins, Gardens at Waters East takes one last look at some of the many photos taken during the recent past month of December.  There were days of fog and days of sunshine;  hikes on StoneWater Beach and walks in the gardens.  Lots of time to wander and reflect on the upcoming Winter season.  Here are a dozen or so, never before posted photos taken over the past month.

Enjoy the last of 2012 at the Gardens at Waters East.

    Great photos! I especially love the fog one. It's not easy to capture so much detail and so much depth in fog. Beautiful work.
