Jackson's Point/ Watery Wednesday

Frozen Lake Simcoe at Jackson's Point

These kids not only walk on water but ride their bikes on it too!

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

I'm afraid it would be too cold and too slippery for me!

Jill said...

Fanatastic shot!

Those kids are awesome!

Roan said...

Love it! Looks like fun, but I would be afraid of falling. That cinches it, I'm old! lol

that make me laugh your comment!! IT's amazing what kids can do nowadays, at least one if them looks as though he is wearing a helmet, kudo's to him.

Lowell said...

You could have included Paul Simon's "Slip-sliding Away" as background music!

Nice, sunny day! And probably not too cold, right? Well, too cold for me, but not for a Canadian!

Stephanie said...

Nice color capture of the red and red on the one fellow. Looks too slippery to ride a bike on.

Pat Tillett said...

Great photo! That's a life I never knew as a kid. I think I would like the cold better now if I had experienced it as a kid on a regular basis.

Robin said...

That looks like it would be so slippery. You must be having a colder winter than they are in New England - they had to move the pond hockey tournament in my parents' town to a smaller lake because the ice on the big lake wasn't thick enough this year!

I can almost feel my brittle bones breaking as I hit the deck, er ... ice!

Hi EG
it must have been fun watching those two ice-riders. the first thought I have is "broken bones". it must be an age thing. at least one of them is wearing a helmet. winter has paid us a visit this week with intermittent snow and cold. nothing like a normal season but at least a taste. thanks for stopping by at Stolen Car - that was truly special. I've been hiding out there while hibernating from my usual blogging haunt and it's been a lot of fun having a photo-conversation with my blogging friend Susan.
happy Tuesday to you EG. take care now.

Sandra said...

It really does look like they are walking on water.

Rebecca said...

That's a first for me...bikes on ice. Wow.

Reader Wil said...

Wow, how scary! As soon as it is slippery, I do not cycle and try to find my way to the shops on foot.
In the meantime our ice melted away.

La Principessa Errante said...

Gorgeous shot! Ahhh to be young again. I notice at least one of them is wearing a helmet. Great capture!

Small City Scenes said...

Now that is FROZEN!!!
Nice shot. MB

Halcyon said...

Hee! Love your commentary with the shot today.

kaye said...

kids just know how to have fun--love the colors in this shot. The red seems to be caught and repeated. From the jacket and the bike and the reflection in the ice and then reflecting off the waves, water and the background. (I'm assuming this picture was taken as the sun went down). Very nice.

NixBlog said...

Lovely shot, makes me nostalgic for when I was young and out riding my bike everywhere.

ilanadavita said...

I had missed your beautiful shots. I like the combination of red and different hues of blue and the lighting is great too.

I´m sure they have fun. But I will not do it. :)

RedPat said...

At their age I would have loved it!

Susan said...

hahaha, no kidding!

Cathy said...

They are very game - wonder if their parents know what they are up to lol

Jim said...

A top shot.

Randy said...

That's a WOW shot!

Ebie said...

The ice must be as hard as the asphalt! Brave ones!

jewaicious said...

I love the composition, so classic and filled with nature's beauty, and with wonderful mood. So serene.

BlueShell said...

I fear the next summer...

Emille said...

For kids challenges are fun - and so it is for photographers, lol! Great capture!

namaki said...

it must be tempting to ride on the icy water !

Ann said...

Hazel said...

The road looks icy; and the 'waves' water like a rolled mat. What a capture!

Celeste said...

Brave souls! How on earth do they manage to keep there bikes upright I wonder?
