Paysage of Machado Lake in Harbor Park (SkyWatch Friday)

Harbor Park is located at Vermont and Anaheim St. in City of Wilmington, adjacent to Palos Verdes. the lake is a bit lower than the road and surrounded by trees, so it cannot be seen from the road and is well worth a short walk to the water. While in college, I spent a Saturday on the lake, practicing canoeing before a trip down a calm section of the Colorado River.

It doesn't look like our area, does it? Reminds me more of the midwest.
Neat shot Tash! You got it on the perfect weather day with those atypical clouds.
