SkyWatch Friday/Weekend Reflections

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 27 May 2010

The skies have been lovely here. Mostly sunny, some cloud  and hot! 31Celsius yesterday! Everything is a vibrant green, nature is flourishing for now. The thought is though, we are going to have a very hot summer with little rain. There is plenty of blue above and green below at Luther Lake.

I love to look at the sky reflected on the water surface. It gives us another world to see, one for the imagination.

A Canadian Beaver swims her way around a pond reflecting the world she lives in.

SkyWatch from Your Skywatch Team: Klaus, Sandy, Wren ,Fishing Guy,Sylvia, great hosts with many wonderful posts. Weekend Reflections  is hosted by James at Newtown Area Photo.


  1. Would you believe I have never seen a beaver in the wild? Sadly it's true. Luther Mash, eh? I'll have to go there!

  2. photokerstin Says:
  3. Lovely pictures!

  4. KaHolly Says:
  5. Well, it's still cold and windy here in Atlantic Canada, so I will have to be satisfied enjoying your beautiful landscape! ~karen

  6. Lorac Says:
  7. EG WOW, this is the first time I have been close enough to photo one too!

    photkerstin, thank you1

    Ka Holly I hope the weather turns for you soon!

  8. Tammie Lee Says:
  9. each photo is wonderful and how cool that you captured a beaver photo.

  10. 31! We are still under 20 with clouds and showers. But I guess we stole all the good weather last year, so fair is fair. - Margy

  12. Nice photos for Sky Watch Friday and all the nicer for your addition of a beaver, they are a unique little animal. Saw on the news a few weeks ago that up north the beavers had constructed a huge dam that could be seen for space, now that would be really cool to see.

  15. Lorac Says:

  34. I have NEVER seen a beaver, that I can remember, in the wild! How fun it would be to see this guy and have a camera too. He is the perfect reflection of the world you live in. What a gorgeous stretch of land, water and sky!

  35. I was especially intrigued with the photo of the Canadian beaver! What a catch! And your other reflection photos are wonderful, too--they fill my eyes, which is the greatest compliment I can give.

  36. Lorac Says:

  64. Thanks for the beaver. I lived in Canada for a few years, and have not seen a beaver.

  65. Clytie Says:
  66. Ooooh, love the beaver. I wonder what he sees from under the water ... does he see the reflections? Or the distorted reality???
