What do you mean you can't see any artists in this photo.
If you follow the trail along the left side of the lake you will clearly see an artist's easel.
My first time hiking the trails that start at the Nix Nature Center. Well worth it.
You needn't have gone this far into the park to get really good landscapes. I've started doing a series called Parking Lot Landscapes where all the photos are taken within a couple hundred feet of a parking lot.
Here's one I did that was about 50 feet from the Willow Canyon parking lot. Didn't know at the time I would call them Parking Lot Landscapes but there you go.
You can find them from the tag Parking Lot Landscape.
