A sunset over a lake is almost as good as a sunrise...maybe even better because it can usually be shared with more people!

What's not to love about the heavenly soft colors of this evening sky. I wouldn't mind wandering around Willow Wharf someday.

hugs,

PLANETS HURTLING THROUGH THE SKY

Planets hurtling through the sky,
Can you tell me one thing: Why
Are you intent on fleeing
Far from human sight and seeing?

I've never been there, but Lake Simcoe is one of my favorite places, too. And this photo reminds me of two mimes going through their routine. Excellent!

Hiya,
I would pick up that penny on your other blog: it looks a lovely little item, and even issued this year. Great souvenir.
Like your coppery skies too.

Good composition.

came via Jama's site.

Singapore roads are not jammed for 2 reasons. The Government charges a very high COE, certificate of entitlement. In Canada, you can get a Mercedees for the money you pay for a lousy Japanese car, then you have to retire your car after 10 years, if not you pay a higher licensing fees.

They have user pays, at certain roads, you pay a toll.

Beverley Baird said...

What gorgeous skies! Love the waythe people are silhouetted against that lovely sky!

Ann said...

I know a lot about the Singapore system because I was an expatriate there for 16 years.
