That's My World!

Saturday morning I needed to do some errands, so I stopped at the neighborhood drive-through and got some breakfast to go. Headed to nearby Oak Lake Park to eat. It was a foggy, misty morning. This was my view as I ate my breakfast.

As it was in the mid-thirties, the ice on the lake was partly melted. It created for some interesting reflections.

To the left of center in this photo is Memorial Stadium, home to the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers. The stadium holds more than 80,000 and on football Saturdays, it is called the third largest city in Nebraska. Totally not visible slightly to the right of the stadium is the Nebraska State Capitol Building.

What a pretty place to eat your breakfast. A stadium that holds that many people must be HUGE!

Misty shots have that eerie feel that I find so beautiful.

Lemme guess, you did not supersize your breakfast to go :)

I like the misty pictures: it creates a mysterious atmosphere. Here yesterday's ice is melting again.

This is like the nature reserve at the back of my house. The misty morning would be perfect for wildlife photography.

If you're that close to the stadium, I'll bet you have some happy neighbors this week.

Nice view for lunch, but a cold winter scene. Hope you were warm.

It does look like winter time. The mist is always nice to walk through though. I like how the dew attaches to the hair.
