White Rock Lake, Dallas

Having reached the height of summer here in Texas, I’ve been trying to get out and enjoy the nice weather as much as possible. Thankfully with White Rock Lake on our doorstep it’s been great to enjoy some of the trails there. White Rock Lake is a reservoir in North Dallas, It’s great for hiking, biking and all kinds of water sports. A lot of animals also call it home, and during the winter time it’s filled with interesting migratory bird species which are fun to go and see.

This photo was taken looking South towards the White Rock Pump Station. I took a photo of the pump station in my photography post. It’s a cool red brick building dating back to 1909. I presume it’s one of the oldest buildings by the lake.
This was a photo i took of a Great Egret at White Rock Lake. From what i remember there were alot more of them here in the Winter but over the summer there were still a few around. They tend to stay close to the shoreline as well so you can get a good view of them.
A nice spot for some fishing. There’s quite a few pontoons spotted around the lake so perfect for any budding anglers. White Rock contains catfish, sunfish, carp & Bass.
Once summer passes and it starts to cool down a little, i’d eventually love to get a new perspective of the lake and explore by kayak.
A nice quiet afternoon earlier this summer, this photo was taken on the western bank of the lake which is my favourite part to walk.
Looking forward to next winter and seeing which birds travel through on their migration.

Howdy, my name’s Matt. I recently moved across the Atlantic from Britain to Dallas, Texas. On arrival I thought it would be fun to try something new and enter the world of photo blogging.
