Great sky. I particularly like the way this photo is cropped with the tree on the left.

There is so much water around where you are, I'm always amazed at that.

A beautiful stretch of weather we have been having. I would have expected a little more "Fall" color.

I looked up Balsam Lake on Wikipedia just to jog my memory of where it was in relationship to the other names I so vividly remember from my youth. The aerial view of those lakes is amazing. Of course Rice Lake near Keene is the most magnificent. (ha ha) Alas, Rice Lake is full of weeds, but I think those northern lakes are still clear. You know the Kawarthas are the "land of shining water".

As far as trees turning, I had to drive 3 hours north of Boston into Maine yesterday and the trees, especially the swamp maples have turned wonderful shades of red.

Colin Campbell said...

Very beautiful.

Eamon said...

another lovely scene - this is a place I could holiday in peace.

Jenn Jilks said...

Deborah Godin said...

Lovely summery sky, and that beautiful "floating" cottage - love this post!

Jacob said...

I remember this place. It was beautiful then and is beautiful now! Wonder what it's like in the dead of winter, though? Maybe the owners come to Ocala?

Wren said...

That looks like a great place for a vacation.

Susan at Stony River said...

Leaves turning already? I'm not sure I'm ready for that LOL. But the shot is gorgeous. Pfft, as ALWAYS! Happy skywatching!

SandyCarlson said...

Oh, I like those primary benches! Sweet. Sweeter yet the place you photographed. What a great image.

A lovely gentle sky, and oh to live on that beautiful spit of land jutting into the lake, green lawns and a boatshed, ahh bliss.

Carletta said...

Just hop in the boat and drive it out of the shed for a spin on the lake - looks like pure enjoyment to me.

Hildred and Charles said...

Great picture of a lovely spot.

Becky and Gary said...

This certainly looks like a place I could be happy at.
Maybe a good fishing spot too.
