Gazebo/ Watery Wednesday

A place to sit and contemplate Lake Ontario's beauty

This photo was taken in early May on the south side of the lake in Upstate New York.

Looks more like an October scene than May.

B Squared. I agree, but the date was May 8...before the leaves were on the trees here. ;-)

see you there! said...

Save me a seat. I'll bring the picnic.

what a wonderful spot for a gazebo

Annie said...

I'm intrigued by the quick change of brown to blue of the lake's water. Do you know what that is about?

PERBS said...

What a beautiful scene! You said SIT so that means there were benches in there. . . me thinks you could have saved that one for Rune's Friday theme. . . Ü I love gazebos and yours is especially beautiful.

Jan said...

Wonderful shot.

VALKYRIEN said...

Save me a seat also! I'll bring the wine!

That is so gorgeous! That is one of the best shots I have seen from you! I simply adore this scenery, and that gorgeous place to sit! Don't know the word for the lovely "house"....sorry! :) :)

Only rarely are lakes so large in Europe that you can't see the other shore. The colours are so pretty.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That was a perfect place for relaxing, indeed.

mick said...

It looks like a nice spot for a picnic - nice photo!

Bim said...

Very serene shot - I love it!

I must agree that the photograph has a sense of fall instead of spring. It's a good place to read a book or just be quiet.

Marie Reed said...

I'll need a nice book as I sit and relax in that gazebo.. hmm.. a Canadian author.... I'll read Saul Bellow! :)

Great shot! What a great spot and I love the change of colors in the water.

Pacey said...

Lovely gazebo, very inviting and I could be lazy here for hours.

Jacob said...

Very interesting shot. The gazebo looks a bit forlorn against the vast expanse of that water...

Love it!

J Bar said...

Romantic place - I can see a movie made here!

Judy said...

Well, if Darla is bringing the picnic, and Valkryien the wine, what is left for me to bring? I know, a thermos of tea and some cakes!

Becky and Gary said...

Now here is a place I could sit and read!

A beautiful scene very well captured.

Another fabulous photo as always!

Okay I now want a gazebo for my backyard :)

Linnea W said...

That's really beautiful: lovely colors, interesting composition, and great lighting in spite of the gray skies. It's a winner!

Dirk said...

Looks like a nice place to spend some time and relax.

Lilli & Nevada said...

aah how lovely

luna miranda said...

oh, what a perfect spot to relax! beautiful shot.

Aileni said...

I fear it was windy and little cool that day. The kind of scene that needs a wind-blown figure deep in thought.

Martha in PA said...

Beautiful shot!

My Watery Wednesday

Jenn Jilks said...

We were in your neck of the woods on the w/e. I would have loved to have visited. We met our adult children on Scugog Ave. and had lunch in town. We were passing off the baby, whose parents had attended a wedding. It is a delightful area, albeit tons of traffic on a Sunday p.m.
Great shot.

Eamon said...

Everything is bigger over there, especially the Lakes! Have you ever been to the Lake District in this part of the world?

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Eamon,
Sadly, I've never been to the Lake District. Sounds like a place I'd love to visit though!

April said...

A very lovely gazebo and such a big lake!

Arija said...
