Kayaker/ Watery Wednesday

Getting away from it all

It was mid morning and I was photographing wildflowers growing on a ledge over Lake Ontario when seemingly out of nowhere  this woman in her kayak quietly appeared.

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

Photography is so very interesting. You never know when a shot is going to present itself. I really like this photo but I also find the subject matter intriguing too with all of the camo.

That is just lovely. That reflection, the same as the weather, can't be easily planned. Great image.

Kayaking is fun and good exercise too! Your timing was perfect! We went canoeing on my parents' lake yesterday afternoon - 'twas heavenly!

Zosia said...

The blue of the water and the yellow of the paddles - perfection. Serenity.

see you there! said...

One of my swimming pool buddies was just yesterday talking about kayaking and how much fun it is.

What happened to the wildflower pictures? Are they to come?
Kayaking on the river Thames I can cope with, but being out on a huge lake like that, all by yourself and without a life jacket even, that is daring in my book.

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful shot! That's what I like about kayaks, you can move along the water with hardly a sound.

So glad I came by. Water photos are my favorite, especially as we are in the midst of a long drought. This is both beautiful and refreshing.

That looks like my sister from the back. ;)

Neat photo op -- I'm glad you shared this with us.

The kayaker doesn't appear to be in much of a hurry!


FEEL THE WATERS’ HEALING

If you’re stressed and weary
Try a thing or two:
Go down to the river,
Take a friend with you;
Take your shoes and socks off,
Plunge in twenty toes—
Feel the waters’ healing
As the river flows!

She is brave enough to do Kayaking alone, I wish I have a fraction of her courage. ^_^

I hope my comment appears---it said it would but I don't see and I am not going to write everything all over again----I am sweaty and tired. Been out in the woods cleaning up around fairly newly planted Doug Fir trees. Too hot today. MB

Janie said...

Great reflection shot. The yellow paddles really stand out.

Jacob said...

She looks a little lonely. Was there no one else nearby in a kayak?

Nice colors here - esp. the yellow (and the reflections!) against the blue.

Dinah said...

What a perfect shot, but I would love to be that lady in the kayak!

I love to float along quietly in a canoe or kayak. It's so peaceful, you have captured the tranquility that is only possible in a motorless boat. A great image.

SandyCarlson said...

Very nice! That's the life.

Indrani said...

Yes, a beautiful slice of life.

Randy said...

I would love to do this instead of going work.

Love kayaking ... wish it were me!

Evelyn said...

Great shot. How nice...

jeannette said...

lovely watery pic!

Luna Miranda said...

an excellent photo! yeah, it looks like she's really getting away from it all.:p

beautiful colors.

Francisca said...

The thing about kayaking is that it so silent and unobtrusive...

[I smiled at your humourous comment on my post... Fortunately Cavtat was our intended destination for the day, just not for four days. My mother has been there with three of her five children. For the record, there is not a devious bone in my body... I'm a Taurus. LOL!]

Cezar and Léia said...

Lucky girl, I think she is enjoying the silence and the beautiful view.This picture says a lot!I like this calm feeling there :)thanks!

Looks like a relaxing place to be. Love the reflection you have captured here.

Shirley said...

How peaceful to be that woman out there on the lake, alone, surrounded by the beauty of nature.

eden said...
