Lake Ontario/ Watery Wednesday

Lake Ontario last Saturday

Winds were churning the lake making waves and murky water, and the light was eerie, all of which created a scene I couldn't resist taking a photo of.

Rose said...

Oh, I love this...it looks threatening.

I always think about the early pioneers/settlers being on the Great Lakes or crossing the Mississippi in canoes and think I would not have had the heart. I even felt like this when I was young!

Jingle said...

Great picture, but it looks so cold there!!

Jacob said...

A scene with this kind of light only comes along once in awhile. Great capture! It is spooky; feels like a huge storm is brewing and is about to explode over the earth at any moment.

P.S. Glad you liked our Stone Creek snow! Fortunately it doesn't stay on the ground long! :-)

PRAISING WATER

Water here and water there,
Water, water everywhere!
Water to restore the soul,
Water in a cup or bowl;
Water gushing in the sink,
Water clear or dark as ink;
Water in the stream and bog,
Water for the newt and frog;
Water to refresh the wheat,
Water washing dusty feet;
Water chasers everywhere
With loud praises do declare
That there is no finer thing—
Water is both queen and king!
