Boathouses/ Watery Wednesday

Boathouses at entrance to harbour in Beaverton, Ontario

I've posted this for Jacob who said he wanted to see a coloured version of the boathouses when I posted this (cropped a bit) in monochrome. Click here to see the black and white photo.

I like color better too. Love the splash of red. My friend has a red canoe and it makes for great pictures on the beach or in the water. MB


BTW: I don't spin but I did just get a wheel and not will learn. MB

I'd love to stay right on the water like that.

I like the color better too, EG... Some B&W's are great... But--this picture is pretty in color. Wouldn't it be neat to live on the water --and go downstairs to get in your boat???? Wow!
Hugs,
Betsy

Betty said...

The black and white was lovely, but I love the color too.

Dagrun said...

What a beautiful place, looks kind of norwegian but I guess it isn't.

kaye said...

I've never seen anything like that. I've read about a lot of boathouses in books, so now this image will be in my mind.

Annie said...

Oh wow. To live like this.

cieldequimper said...

These look familiar. Are they?

cieldequimper said...

OK, forget my previous comment, I hadn't read the "for Jacob" bit. I love the b&w though of course the red is enticing.

Cezar and Léia said...

It's beautiful!
And that boat is only one detail because the boathouses took the scene! :)
Perfect post dear friend,
Léia

Martha Z said...

Both are nice photos.

Jan said...

Boathouses are very different from the houseboats we have around here. I love your photo of the boathouses.

Kitty said...

Lovely nautical colours! They look quite cosy - I like that they have two floors.

White Oleander said...

These houses look beautiful and expensive.

Photo Cache said...

I've always been fascinated by boat houses. And always wanted a taste of living there.

It must be lovely to stay in one of those and hear the water splashing against the house while you sleep.

J Bar said...

Great shot. My photo this week features somthing that is not exactly water but is water related.

Hugs and blessings,

Tom said...

A loverly view.. :O))

George said...

Those are literally boat houses. It must be nice to live above your boat. I think I prefer the color version as well.

eileeninmd said...

Lov ethe boathouses and I like the color version too.

Becky and Gary said...

How cool to drive right up to your stairs, and be out of the weather too.

PERBS said...

Oh! I like this also!

Jacob said...

This the same shot that you posted a while back, right? But in b&w. I like the color...very dramatic and a beautiful place!

Well done!

Tricia said...

I like both pics - I like whatever it is that you do to your b&w's, but I also like color.

Happy Watery Wednesday!

Ebie said...

Looks like a comfortable weather for that boating!

James said...

I like this picture and the little piggy too. :)

Mona Sweden said...

I like the sharpness in the picture. I feel like I'm in the middle of the picture.

Hilda said...

Interesting. They look like ordinary houses, but with boats rather than cars in their garages. Cool.

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

another great image with color!

gengen said...

I like your shot also it is cool. Happy watery Wednesday.

luna miranda said...

Gunilla said...

Great photo. I´d love to have it like that.
Thanks for visiting me too.

The view is best accented by the red canoe, great shot!

Here's to a Watery Wednesday in the Korean side of the world.

amada@moorebloglife said...

That shot looks so peaceful and calm. We all need a bit of relaxation like this. Happy WW!

Stan said...

That's watery. Are the houses also floating?

Dimple said...

This is very nice. I'd like to live in the house part, except not in the winter!

Stephany said...

Both versions are lovely but the color looks more peaceful. Great shot!

Nukke said...

Your boathouses are so nice. Here boathouses are only like red barns !

Nature Footstep,

Yes people live there during the summer months.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Those boatfouses are lovely! I would love to be there...

Your photos always amaze me!

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

Wow, what an amazing job color does. In this picture it works like a time machine! The B&W picture looked so vintage, and this one is absolutely up to date.

Carolyn Ford said...

I do like the color version best. It's so subtle and clean feeling. What a different life style that is with a boat in the garage...I also like that splash of red. Very nice photo!
