Beaverton/ Watery Wednesday

Beaverton, Ontario on Lake Simcoe

When I was a child I lived on the coast and thought the Atlantic Ocean was the most beautiful body of water ever. NOW I have to say that - although that  ocean is certainly lovely - so are the Great Lakes and the "lesser lake" (I made that up) Lake Simcoe, which is especially gorgeous when the sun rises and sets over it.

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

It's like a painting, a beautiful painting. :)

I agree. Beautiful!

Kathy said...

And I thank you for sharing that beauty with your blog friends!

I was born in a small town on Lake Michigan, and how I love it! Even tho I no longer live there, I appreciate your comment about the Great Lakes. Wonderful bodies of water, and your Lake Simcoe is equally beautiful in your sunlist photo.

Sandra said...

to me the sun rising or setting or shining on any body of water is spectacular. this is beautiful. every time i see your blog title I think how appropriate your title is because I always find a WOW photo here

This is as beautiful of a scene that I've seen anywhere. I really think your skies are better over there. :)

Judy said...

I never get tired of your beautiful sunset/sunrise pics.

Wouldn't I love to be out there kayaking as the sun goes down! Just beautiful.

Rose said...

this is gorgeous!

Lake Simcoe is rapidly becoming one of my very favorite lakes.

But you need to explain to this dunderhead why you're posting a "Watery Wednesday" shot on Tuesday?

I'm not complaining; I thought today was Friday for awhile! But I'm old and have an excuse!

Gorgeous shot.

Jack said...

It sure is a special place. I don't think there is any use in comparisons of beauty. I appreciate the beauty in many different places.

Rebecca said...

So, while you are flying to NYC, I'll fly to Beaverton! Two beautiful sunsets. But, it is really cheaper just to share our photos!

Reader Wil said...

Love lake and lovely shot. Any body of water is beautiful to me. Sometimes even a puddle.

I did ever answer you question about the edible Thistle AKA a Horse Thistle because horses will eat it. It grows mountain high and is not a pesty invasive type. MB

I love watching the sunset over the water. Gorgeous photo!

Craver Vii said...

This is indeed a lovely view. I would be eager to see the Great Lakes from other perspectives beyond Chicago, where I am from. I'll bet there are lots of spectacular views up North.

I think it would be very hard to find any body of water more beautiful than this 'Lesser Lake'.

I love to see water playing with sunlight!


WATER

Water in a drop of rain,
Water swirling down the drain;
Water clinging to the trees,
Water filling up the seas;
Water frozen, water free,
Water is the stuff for me!

Luna Miranda said...

sunset and water are a perfect pair. lakes are mysterious to me, i'd like to see more lakes now after a m lake experience recently.:p

Lorna said...

I so wish I had been able to access your blog when I lived in Central Ontario---we were starved for beauty back then, although, apparently, it was there.

a great sunset for today. :)

Tanya said...

you really do get the most amazing sunsets there!

Faye said...

What a fortunate, golden time to be out with your camera. Magic time in nature. So, you're doing a photo every day of the year? That sounds like a great challenge, but one that would help you grow as a photographer? I might try a "baby steps" copy of this.

momgen said...

That is pretty...Happy WW!

Mine is here

Saun said...

Janie said...
