This shot was taken in the summer of 2013:
Yesterday’s late afternoon sun highlighted the reds and greens along the lake’s edge.
Many thanks to the Bent Tree homeowner who took this amazing photo and let me share it here. It epitomizes “The Quiet World of Bent Tree”.
Not that kind of weed, but it’s kind of ironic that the Smoker Craft has [a] weed growing in it. This boat was apparently overlooked when abandoned boats were removed earlier this year.
New signs, reflecting the amended Lake & Wildlife Rules approved by the Board last September, are now in place around Lake Tamarack. The lake was restocked last month with 10,000 small bream as a food supply for the bass (which were reported to be overpopulated and undersized).
The photo above shows some of the aftermath of the 6-8 inches of rain that Bent Tree received before daylight on Thursday (August 1, 2013). A large section of Tamarack Drive washed out. Both Fox 5 and WSB did live broadcasts from Bent Tree covering the flood. Following are some random pictures from the day.

Turkey vultures (a.k.a. turkey buzzards) may not be pretty, but they were putting on a “dam” good show, yesterday. There were about 40 of them catching the wind currents around the dam and across Lake Tamarack. Several of them kept swooping down just above road level, then soaring high again.
