Boat Launch/ Sky Watch

Boat Launch on Cook's Bay, Keswick, Ontario

This is what one boat launch looked like a few minutes before I took the SOOC (straight out of the camera) shot I posted last Saturday. It was a long, varied and beautiful sunset. And the temperature was ideal too!

Now that looks like a lake I'd like to spend the day on...or evening...

A very satisfying photo. Makes me feel good!

Re: Kids wearing helmet while biking...I'm not sure if there's a law or not. But, the Greenway is off the beaten track, and the only other traffic are joggers, walkers and a few bikers...and in spite of the fact it looks like she's by herself, we were close by...

I would think most people would be pulling the boats from the lake. Then again, fishermen are a different breed.

Patti said...

Stunning sunset. I'll go see the other photo now. ;-)

Beautiful shot. You know what the first thing that came into my mind when I saw that was tomatoes. Don't ask me why but the muted red seemed like tomato soup when made with milk not water. Yes I am weird. LOL
Anyway it is a pretty spot to visit. MB

The sunset is absolutely gorgeous!

Oh, you had to throw in the Ideal Temperature comment? It is still in the lower 90s during the day here and I must say... I am not pleased.

The sunset is gorgeous!

The sunset and it's reflection on the water are wonderful. A very gorgeous scene. Sitting on a bench or some sort of chair or (anything else) would be my definition of a grand evening!

Oh gosh darn you have gone and made me homesick for the skies and crisp evenings of indian summer.

Beautiful photo, how lucky that you were able to enjoy this magical moment.

Made me want to be there. Both photos (I looked at last Saturday's, too) are absolutely gorgeous. Good for you, having that camera right at hand!

Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful reflection on the water. I'd want to be in a boat in the middle of that sunset too, if I could.

Fab shot. I love the colour of the sky and I love the reflection even more. Quite stunning.
