Lake Simcoe/ Watery Wednesday

The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.

I do love that Lake Simcoe...and your photos of it. This one is especially nice!

Jacob said...

Me again! With re to your question about the weather; it's in the low 90s most days, but gets down to about 70 at night. Not so bad. And we often get a thunderstorm in the afternoon which cools things down nicely.

We don't really start to cool off much until mid-October or later.

sunset over the lake is so poetic and appropriate as we say goodbye to august.

Another fantastic capture. :)

I just went through my emails and saw that you asked how many shots I took on my Rebel before it died and the answer to that is that I don't know.

However, for the past year and a half I have probably been taking 400 to 800 pictures a month.

I suspect that I took more pictures than the "average" consumer that they had in mind for that level of camera. But it could have just been a fluke thing as well.

I got an error 99 before it died.
