Watery Wednesday

Posted by Lorac Wednesday, 7 October 2009

Watery Wednesday  It is only 7 Celsius ( 43 Fahrenheit) and it is raining with high winds blowing all the leaves around. A true Watery Wednesday! On the weekend at the cottage on Kawagama Lake, the weather was pretty much the same as today with brief periods of non-rain. I took this shot in one of those windows of time but you can see it soon began to pour. Use the link and check out other posts for W.W.

The lake reflects the colour of the sky, a stark contrast to the oranges,reds and golds of the autumn leaves.

  2. Oh that is a gorgeous scene! Lovely leaf colors on the opposite side of the lake. The gray in the sky and the gray-blue water seem to enhance the colors even more.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comment. :D

    Happy WW and try to stay warm!

  4. Oh my goodness, this is absolute beauty! Our colors here in NW Montana are still unfolding. So glad the sun peaked out for you. Your day sounds like ours, temp rain and all. Thanks for your visit.

  6. I prefer this version of the photo to the two in the next post! I love the fall colours on the other side of the lake, and the almost gunmetal shade of the water, with that rain coming in!!

  7. Linnea Says:
  8. Wow! Awesome fall colors. You captured this scene with such nice lighting too. Things aren't as colorful around my parts...not yet at least. Enjoy the beauty of fall!

  22. Lovely fall colors around the slate gray lake... gray is a good background for the sky and water... makes the colors brighter or truer. Very Nice!
