Scenic Sunday, Weekend Reflections

Posted by Lorac Saturday, 15 May 2010

A stormy day on Old Woman's Bay, Lake Superior. I love the colour contrast and the wildness of the waters!

From the archives, doppelganger geese!

Gorgeous scenes can be found at Scenic Sunday and Weekend Reflections! Go take a look!

  16. I agree, that first photo is amazing!

  17. Hey-a twofer! Great to get two for one as a weekend special. Our local band of Canada Geese have recently set up housekeeping and can be seen floating about with their broods on any local ponds.

    That beach in the first photo looks like a great place to go for long walks. Great action in the sky and the waves.

    fredamans, thank you!

    louciao, that i s a beach on the infamous lake Superior, know for it's many shipwrecks one of which is the SS Edmund Fitzgerald. On November 10, 1975, in one of Lake Superiors well known horrendous gales, she split in two and sank!

    cat, thanks, it is a cool sky!

  22. Thanks for the visit, there are several of my blogs to visit one being

  24. Greetings Lorac,
    That photograph of Lake Superior brings back memories of my drive across Canada in 1980. I remember standing on a beach at Lake Superior and suddenly realising that I had stood on an ant hill. Not pleasant what happened next...ants in pants..I'll leave it at that:-)
    Lovely photographs. Thanks for posting them.
    With respect, Gary

  25. Tania Says:

  28. Love your header!!!!! You are so right about the contrasting colors in picture #1, wow! I have some fabric that looks just like that! ~karen

  29. Lovely geese and reflection in the second photo. Are you anywhere near Windsor? I was a student in 1975-77. It was really an eye opener for someone from tropical Borneo. My room mate's dad took me to see the geese at Kingsville one Christmas.

  30. Lorac Says:

    klahanie, that must have been extraordinarily unpleasant!
