Olcott Harbor/ Watery Wednesday

The harbour at Olcott, New York (U.S.A.)

The harbour is iced in for the winter but the water out in the lake is blue and ice free.

What a lovely shot! I'll bet the wind wakes you up when it first hits you.

winter/summer it's always beautiful. I hope you'll join in the bi-monthly discussions of War and Peace. There is supposed to be on this month sometime. You should post some pictures that tell a little bit about the work you do in your community. It would be very interesting.

A chilly view, but really a spectacular one!

George said...

What a wonderful view! This is really picture perfect -- it would make a great post card or photo for framing.

Jack said...

Nice shot. Add one more name to the list of very chilly places this winter.

Leif Hagen said...

Has anyone been brave enough to do a "polar bear swim" out in those waters?!

cieldequimper said...

God bless you!

What a lively photo for a winter harbour! It is very beautiful.
Is the sea always ice-free? Once it was freezing so hard that the rivers were all frozen over and the ferry couldn't cross the river where I live. This will only happen once in a life time.

Cool colors over the port view of Olcott Harbor.
I have been searching for your RT, but couldn't find it.

Leora said...

Freezing looking but beautifully blue.

Cecilia Artista said...

Nice with the ice free water!

Carolyn Ford said...

wow! That's a very beautiful scene...snow with brilliant blue...so nice!

Judy said...

You still have liquid water! But then, this is one of the Great Lakes, so it takes a lot to freeze them solid!

I suppose that because I'm so used to seeing the beaches of California, it is so odd to be to see a shore lined with ice and snow. Beautiful though.

A wonderful snowscape ending in rippling water!

Rose said...

This looks almost like one of those puzzles...can't think who does them. They are sort of folk artsy...do you know the ones I mean? It is a great capture.

Frank said...

It sure looks cold. Great view.

RedPat said...

Lovely shot! I haven't been brave enough to approach the lakeshore this winter - you certainly have! I meant to comment yesterday on how beautiful your swan shots were - thanks for all the info about the swans - I had no idea there were 2 such distinct types.

Lesley said...

Nice view!

jeannette said...

The bright colors in the snow make the snow "friendlier" and not so cold looking:) Your comment about the harbor iced in, but the lake nor, is interesting info!

Wonderful scene. Even though it's closed for winter, it still somehow looks very inviting to me!

Janie said...

The harbor looks beautiful even on a dreary day. The blue fence adds a nice touch of color.

Ann said...

Your photo has captured the two things I love most -- snow and water.

Another interesting view of a life I know little about. Now I see why people take their boats out of the water for the winter.
