SkyWatch Friday!

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 6 August 2009

Once again it is
SkyWatch Friday!

At the cottage this weekend we saw this "Rock Cut" hole at Ragged Falls in Dwight. My first thought was of SkyWatch Friday. The reflection of the sky in the water of this naturally made hole was unique. Thousands of years ago the river was much higher and larger. This hole was created by a vortex of water swirling rocks around.
I love old churches! Of course we don't have old churches as they do overseas, ours only being 100 plus but to us there are old. I have particularly liked this one and the sky was perfect!

 I always look for reflections. I think the double image they show is perfect for Sky Watch Friday.

Finally one from just at dusk tonight. This is bitter sweet. The Canadian Geese flying in such large flocks already and in "V" formation foretells of an early autumn here. They are getting ready to fly south. I love Autumn but we haven't even had any summer yet! It has been an unusually cool summer.

Remember to go and check out the other wonderful posts and hosts from all over the world on the Skywatch Friday Blog!

  4. There have been too many geese formations this past week!

    I really like that 'rock cut' reflection. The hole looks like it could be from some ancient ritual.

Was made by Gerard Carriere in Noelville,Ontario.Will be doing a post with pictures on that sometime.Also, had trouble going thru the locks on the magnetawan river couple years back. My outboard kept cutting out.

  17. What I find is the the geese aroumd ere even swim in a line. I have lots of shots showing this. THey are practising for flight, they visit other lakes, now that they are not limited to swimming around their hatchling lake. So fun to watch! Thanks for visiting My Muskoka!

  18. If only some of our dams looked like this (full of water) it's such a beautiful sight. I know I am meant to be admiring the sky but the beauty of the water is so overpowering in importance for me.

  19. Barry Says:
  20. I don't think summer has actually arrived yet. I think the geese have just given up waiting.

    Great photos by the way.
