Stunning Lake Norman Sunset Calendar

Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here

It is amazing how glassy the water had to be on this beautiful evening on Lake Norman to create such a perfect mirror image of the trees along the shore, the clouds and the stunning sunset.  A huge thank you to my past client and friend Betty Ann for sending me this for my monthly calendar!!  The longer I stare at it the more artistic details I see, especially how the water accentuates the colors, the shapes of the clouds and the sky itself.  How wonderful to have been able to capture and share this instant of nature’s beauty on our very special lake.

To make your desktop calendar just click on the link above and then right click and select “set as background”.

I would love to use one of your favorite photos depicting life here in Lake Norman. (Optimum size is a landscape photo about 2MB or about 1600 x 1200 pixels). I will give a $25 Gas Card to anyone who provides a photo that I use as one of my monthly calendars. If you’d like to submit a photo or an idea for a future calendar, please send it to…diane@dianeaurit.com

Lake Norman Waterfront Lot's view of the lake

Download this month’s Lake Norman calendar here

The weather was amazing in April!  Lake Norman’s gorgeous shoreline is once again decorated with our myriad lush green trees, flowering Azaleas and plants of all kinds.  In many places the docks just peak out to let people know that, in fact, someone is lucky enough to live behind those trees on the lake.

I took this picture from the dock of a waterfront lot I just listed in The Point, arguably the most prestigious luxury community on Lake Norman.  Since our recovery after the recession, the last remaining lots in The Point and the greater Brawley School Rd. peninsula have been gobbled up and most already have gorgeous new homes on them.  Construction is everywhere.  There are 3 waterfront homes being built just down the street from me and 3 others are completed.  I must admit that it is sometimes hard to see our beautiful, wooded lots disappearing.

The lot in this photo is shoulder to shoulder with some amazing luxury waterfront estates!  Check it out: 134 Cape Cod Way.

One of my favorite things about life in Lake Norman is my Certified Wildlife Habitat Garden.  It has grown over the past 10 years from red clay to an amazing retreat where I can enjoy myriad plants, flowers and Lake Norman’s wide array of birds, wildlife and butterflies without ever leaving my house.  Here is a photo of my pond and waterfall area from last April: Continue reading

It’s time to start thinking about spring and getting back out on our beautiful Lake Norman.  From “cigarette” boats speeding up the main channel to kayaks like these on a quiet cove, Lake Norman offers something for everyone.  Photos like this can’t help but bring you a sense of peace and serenity.

This stunning photo was taken by renowned artist Cotton Ketchie, owner of Mooresville’s Landmark Gallerieswho spends much of his time driving all over North Carolina and even summer trips around the country, taking stunning photos. And, of course, he also takes some amazing photos of Lake Norman as well. If you haven’t visited his store on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville you should put it on your list for 2014! He has myriad beautiful photographs like this one for sale as well as his wonderful watercolors and even North Carolina pottery. Continue reading

Lake Norman in the snow

Yes, we do have snow here!  I actually took this photograph last year but our recent snow looked just about the same.  One of the top reasons that my relocating buyers give for wanting to live in the Lake Norman area is our 4 mild seasons and most of the time that is very accurate.  It just happens that once every winter recently we have had one “real” snow where is sticks and schools are closed.  We do own a snow shovel but this is our 11th winter here and we didn’t get it until last year!
