Farm in Lake/ Weekend Reflections

Reflection of farm and clouds in shallow area of Canal Lake, Ontario

We stopped to get a photo of a great blue heron, but by the time I got out of the car the heron had disappeared! (Story of my life. LOL)

However, looking over the lake in a southerly direction I spotted this lovely reflection of a barn and clouds in the mirror of the lake at its shallow end.

The clouds almost look like mountains. Peaceful and serene. The blue heron will become available another day.

George said...

Wow! I think you hit the trifecta -- gorgeous skies, great reflections and a beautiful pastoral scene. This is simply a wonderful picture.

The reflections are perfect. It almost looks like glass.

Two super reflections. Serendipity. Heron gone, but that didn't stop you!

And no, we were not vain enough to buy the vane!

This is a gorgeous sky! And I love the double dose with the reflection.

Carolyn Ford said...

Ohhhh, that sky is amazing! And, the yellow pond lily is so simple and elegant. Beautiful post!

I love how the reeds in the water change the texture of the clouds, that's so beautiful

I love the reflection of the pond lily. I have been driving by a pond with pond lilies in it for weeks and meaning to stop but am either late or the wind is blowing or there is no sun...anyway so glad you got this photo it is beautiful. The barn reflection is so peaceful. Thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend.

A beautiful picturesque reflection scene. I really like the pond lily.

I like the farm shot. Thanks for stopping by my blog and your encouragement. My experiments will continue. I'm looking to shoot a lot of wide angle shots of farms in my neighborhood over the summer. Should be interesting to document the changes as the crops mature.

Ebie said...

Wow! You might have missed the heron, but you have captured the best spot for your reflections. The lily pads look like frozen ice, neat shot!

Martha Z said...

Well worth the stop even without the heron.

Bonnie Bonsai said...

I'll vote this as the Top of all the Reflection Post! Amazing and what a shot!

Thanks for the visit. Much appreciated.

The first one is a ghostly reflection while the second one is just so lovely with that lone pond lily no doubt pond-ering it's existence.
