Kempenfelt Bay/Our World

 Barrie waterfront

It was a mostly overcast day, the light just right for creating faint reflections.

Birdhouse in the harbour

I'm not sure what birds this birdhouse was made to attract, but most times there's a gull sitting on the roof.


 Neat and tidy island

I like to stand  on the bank and watch ducks and shorebirds. The distance between the shore and the island is fairly short, and all kinds of birds land her - for some reason, quite unafraid.

Fishers out on a warm late autumn day

I can sense the approaching winter in these photos. If I were a small bird I would be afraid to hide in that birdhouse with a relatively giant seagull hanging out on the roof. :)

Beautiful images, the grayer skies and slightly rippled waters make for a great effect.

that's a swallow or a martin house. I wonder why they put it there?

Great shots,

The bit of wild land against the cityscape is interesting.

Your bird "apartment" fits in well with the rest of your scenes.

Lovely images. Overcast days are great for photography. I wonder if that birdhouse is for purple martins? That's what it reminds me of.

You can almost feel winter in the air when looking at your photos.

I really like the reflections in your first photo. You did a great job of capturing them.

Becky said...

Cool shots EG. I too like to just watch the shore birds. Still waiting for the Tundra swans in my area. Got pics on Lake Erie yesterday of a few, so they are on the move. Thanks for the info.

Andrea said...

It looks cold and silent, not much activity going on. But i love the silence and it looks idyllic.

Rohrerbot said...

Looks like a quiet and sleepy walk along the waters:) Reminds me of my walks along Lake Michigan on days like these. Very nice:)

Randy said...

You still caught some nice reflections.

Lovely shots of the bay and reflections. The birdhouse looks like a purple martin house or maybe swallow. They would only be there in the spring and summer.
