Evening in Sharon/ Sky Watch

Cool blues over Sharon, Ontario, in the middle of East Gwillimbury

Nothing brown here; it has been very rainy and quite cool this year. As you can see, the Queen Anne's lace is glorious!

Are you sure this isn't a painting? Love all the colors and the pastoral look. We've had a lot of rain, too.

That is a beautiful picture--I love how it captures the Queen Anne's lace.

Seems as though the Queen Anne's Lace has bursted forth this week. It seems to be everywhere around N. Michigan.

BJ Roan said...

Yes, the Queen Anne's Lace is beautiful. There is nothing more beautiful than green against a blue sky.

That's a gorgeous shot. Looks like such a pleasant place to be.

Deborah Godin said...

The cool has made a difference - less of some things I like, such as crickets and fireflies (at least here on the lake) but the extra rain did indeed make the wildflowers glorious - like in this wonderful photo!

RuneE said...

You have obviously had a lively atmosphere - but it can make for some beautiful photos!

Lovely contrast between earth and sky!
I was thinking exactly as Leora but I didn't want to say it. I think so many of your images look like paintings. :)

The whole photo is glorious! Kinkade should paint that scene.

Wow......that sky looks more like a painting than a photograph.

Susan at Stony River said...

So many of your photographs should be hanging over mantels frankly, and here's another one! The beautiful white of the Queen Anne's lace and the peek of white from the clouds are just wonderful together. Gorgeous as always!

Kris said...

That is just lovely!

Sally in WA said...

Beautiful, especially with the wildflowers in the foreground.

JOE TODD said...

Love the green and blue contrast. My photos are from your neck of the woods. I have been going to Canada for over 40 years and this year I had to have a passport. I guess the world is changing Thanks Joe Todd
