SkyWatch Friday!

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 23 July 2009

I love those evenings when the sky is reflected in the water of Kawagama Lake and everything turns rosy!

It can go from the lake looking like glass to rough and choppy in minutes.

Some summer days the heat of the day is just reflected in the setting sun. 

 Or the sun may be as a star in the early night sky!

Waiting for the storm to hit. Can't you feel the power that lays within?

 Lovely days when going to look out in Dorset is well worth time.

Go check out amazing skies at SkyWatch Friday!

  33. Liss - I got a big kick out of that video too. I found it looking for Canada Day content. It was made just south of here on the Grand River,by a couple of unknowns. Hey! We would love to have you.Come on over!(Video at the bottom of my blog)

    Jenn Jilks - Can't beat them. One of the reasons I get up in the morning.

    msdewbery. Oh! Cool name. I loved a lotion with dewberry. Haven't seen it in years though. I think storms make us realize how teeny we are compared to the power they have.
