Sauble Beach/ Watery Wednesday

 Bicycling on Sauble Beach, Lake Huron, Ontario

Sunday afternoon less than hour till sunset, it was windy and the waves were tumbling into shore when two bicyclists  rolled along the waters edge.

FYI: In thee foreground you see some dried grass. I was climbing a sand dune when I saw the bicycles and snapped the shutter quickly to catch the riders.

Stopping to take a good look at the waves

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

I'm like Kathy, I wish I were there also. You captured the wind and waves perfectly.

Exhilarating! A fantastically 'fresh air' shot!

Great pictures from a nice day at the beach.

Sandra said...

beautiful scene, waves are so wonderful to watch and listen to.

Judy said...

What a neat scene. I can hear those waves crashing...sigh...I do miss that.

Farmchick said...

What a beautiful spot to bike.

Jill said...

What a fun place to ride. Love these pictures...very pretty.

Kate said...

What fun! Only thing better would be to be riding on horses on the beach. The waves clearly indicate the windy weather.

I was once at Sauble beach and was amazed (as in disappointed) that cars are allowed to park on the beach, take up space and pollute the sand. For that reason I preferred the beach in Southampton just a few kilometres away.

Ms. Becky said...

well I'll be. I'm surprised that it's possible to ride a bike in sand. I suspect my own would sink? hmmmm. at any rate, I love the shot. it's a classic! happy day to you EG.

such beautiful beach!
love those shots.
my fave is the first one.

Lowell said...

That first shot is especially good...gotta wonder what they're doing out there...if it was cool and windy, it was probably pretty cold, and from the condition of the waves - windy!

RedPat said...

I have been up there once and it was gorgeous! Love that 1st shot.

VP said...

Water, waves make always a great background and you really got the best of it!

I'd do anything to get this good angle! Actually the foreground (dried grass) sets the mood of great photography!

Matching jackets, just like some contestants in Amazing Race. So you watch it in Canada? I love it,

Those are some serious waves on that lake.
Super that you got shots of the cyclists!

I love the layered colors you captured here--all sand and turquoise with froth. The grass "shadows" added additional interest to the top photo too.

Indrani said...

I would never have thought of riding a bike on the sand. Must be nice off-road bikes (or whatever they're called). Lovely shots!

Viola said...
