SkyWatch Friday!

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 27 August 2009

SkyWatch Friday

Recently I went to the Bruce Peninsula, "Halfway Log Dump" on beautiful Lake Huron. Here are a couple of more pics from that area. It isn't what you think when you say dump. This was a log "dump" back in the logging days or a halfway point for the logs on the way to the mills. 
Every way you turned there was something to take a picture of!
This is all limestone rock. It is very white in the water and that is why it turns an azure colour. Walking through here I could feel the history around us, from the natives paddling their canoes on the lake for hundreds of years, pioneers logging and fishing the lake for a living, to modern day man enjoying what the lake has to offer. All around in the limestone is evidence of another time. Fossils are every where in the stone. I stand on top of the rocks warmed in the sunshine and marvel at the beauty!
Trees reach for the sky with a precarious hold on the cliffs.

It wouldn't be the same to have a post without a sky reflection! The dark shadows are brightened with a wee bit of blue.

 Bear Rump Island in the distance, sky clearing from a lackluster grey to a softly brushed blue. The air was warm and a gentle breeze was blowing the scent of clean water and evergreen around us.
  The water is clear, cold and so inviting! Shall we go for a dip?

  19. Joe Todd Says:
  20. Thanks for the tour. Years and years ago I flew over Bear's Rump Island in a small plane on my way to Lake Penage. Looks like a great place to visit

  21. Lorac Says:
  22. Louise - I have never seen water that colour anywhere else in Ontario. Thanks for visiting!

    luna miranda -Every time I look at the photos I want to go right back but it is a 2 hour drive. Not something I can do during the week!

    Karen- My compulsion to show reflections shots! I really like them. They provide a different way to look at the world.

    VioletSky - I couldn't believe the opportunities there . Everywhere!

    Joe Todd - Such a cool name for an island. One of the things I like about Ontario, many of the original native names were kept.

  31. Hi Lorac

    the limestone does make for a beautiful coloured lake - is it too cold for swimming?

    Happy days

  32. I think I need to take a road trip to the Bruce Peninsula soon. I feel so inspired by these photos. ;-)
