SkyWatch Friday!

Posted by Lorac Friday, 21 August 2009

SkyWatch Friday

I have always stated my fondness for reflections before. It's like getting two pictures in one!  This was taken in Belleville, Ontario. They have done a massive amount of work at the water front on the river.

Emerald lily pads look like they are awaiting the gift of a " Frog Prince". Cool grey limestone, cut from a local quarry, reflects beside the pale blue of the evening sky.

This was taken in Holland. I liked the loneliness of the deserted out door cafe. A surprise rain had swept through leaving the air chilly and damp. Everyone moved inside to enjoy the display of the setting sun .

I traveled all over Canada in my past employment. I consulted at many Cement Plants. Dirty, dusty places, all of them. One plant in particular had made a point of trying to look attractive on the outside. As you drove into the plant which was built in an old limestone quarry, they had built the road around two little lakes that had been born when the quarry flooded. The lakes were clean and clear looking and definitely inviting to look at. Especially when your option was the plant behind it.  These swans were actually owned by the company. Every winter the would go into a warm hut and were brought back out in the spring. They would socialize with the geese, ducks and other waterfowl that would  come to mate and nest. Swans mate for life.

Here the reflection of the plant in one part of the lake.You can see the lime stone cliffs all around. They colour of the day here is always grey.

Sitting out on a warm rock in the middle of a forest with a musical river below and you have the recipe for peace.
