One can really see the storm coming in. Beautiful contrasts in b&wh.

It literally looks surreal. Fantastic shot.

Rambling Round said...

Monochrome certainly does justice to the approaching bad weather.

Vita Stunder said...

And mood.

I got a real "Beaver Cleaver" feeling looking at this pic. The back and white took me back instantly in time. Like it, Thanks!

James said...

Awesome shot! That is a really good time to take a picture either before or after a storm.

Anne said...

Beautiful skies and a beautiful place :-) even if the rain was on its way :-))

Petunia said...

That picture has the quality of a print from film. I like it very much.

judi said...

Liz said...

That sky is incredibly dramatic.

Ashley said...

What a fantastic shot! I have been to Lake Simcoe many times and you, my friend have captured one of those dark and stormy days. Very well done!

Jacob said...

Lake Simcoe is very large, right? In other words a storm brewing off the lake could be quite strong.

Needless to say (but I will anyway), you came through with another super b&w shot. Lots of interest; great play of light and shadow.

I love this, in black and white it looks like an even more fierce storm.

Shammickite said...

I was just checking through your blogs and was wondering which EG river is home to the EG Hippo!!! (I knew it was the Toronto Zoo all anong!) Did you get the storm last Thursday? Quite a lot of damage near here, but not much in Stouffville, thank goodness.

Becky and Gary said...

Those clouds look so familiar, and I can almost see the wind blowing.

Those clouds are downright scary. Great shot though. MB

PERBS said...

This photo was perfect in black and white. There is so much expression in it that would be lost in a color photo.

RuneE said...

You have caught the waves very well. That is not easy in monochrome at that angle. I feel the storm coming!

Cezar and Léia said...

This lake looks peaceful now!Great b&W shot!You did a fabulous work one more time, congratulations EG!

John said...

Nice shot, especially with the cloud detail

Rose said...

I always love your monochrome shots...this is not exception. It is wonderful.

VALKYRIEN said...

Wonderful shot, and very suitable for monochrome! Love the moody sky!

Thanks for all your kind words on my blog, while I was on vacation!

BJ Roan said...

I think B&W makes the storm even more threatening. Love it!

Daryl said...

Wonderful scenery

Pagan Sphinx said...

Well done. I love, love this shot.

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

Absolutely moody, true! And the sky looks so dramatic. It works pretty well in B&W. Hope the storm was not as fierce as the clouds were promising.

M.Kate said...

Very nice picture, to a point of scary actually LOL...

Greyscale Territory said...

Wonderful sense of moody tones throughout this landscape! The monochrome accentuates the drama of the sky!

dot said...

Very moody for sure! I love it!

Bim said...

The clouds in b&w are extraordinary!
