Before Ice

 Tiny Marsh in late October

Something from my archives to remind us (OK, mainly me) what blue skies really look like. November and December skies are notorious for being overcast over Ontario and this year they have both been pretty much... GREY.

Slightly different view

Others need to see some blue, too!!! Somehow, I have not noticed (or maybe I don't remember) how beautiful the combination of blue sky and dead cattails can be...

Revrunner said...

I'm sure it's not as cold here as where you live, but even just the thought of sun and warm summer temperatures is comforting. :-)

Our photos said...

Bill Nicholls said...

very nice to remind me of what the blue sky actually look like! Monochrome as been the word around here the last couple of months.

nice to be reminded of blue days

Those blue skies and reflections in the water are beautiful! Such a pretty blue. We've had a lot of grey skies here too but I find January and February we have a lot of blue skies and sunshine along with the cold. We have a snow storm coming Sunday into Monday. Have a great weekend.

Sandra said...

Cranberry Morning said...

And aren't those beautiful shots! I also love those walkways in the previous post. How fun to spend an afternoon there! My favorite one is of the shadows. Cool pic!

Marshes are lovely year round. Beautiful photos! Have a happy week-end!

These are nice. We have blue skies most every day here in the North Bay Area of SF. I'd welcome some drama in the sky even if it were just grayness.

Gail Dixon said...

That first shot reminds me of a still life painting. Perfect clouds, beautiful reflection, and gorgeous colors. Really nice!!!

TexWisGirl said...

Thanks for the reminder about blue skies, these are gorgeous to look at.

genie said...

What beautiful reflections of clouds on the water. They look like you could play hop scotch on then :-) We have lots of winding picket fences our in the county here. I loved the idea that this one had the pond with it...and a house that was in good standing.

Sylvia K said...

I used to think the ideal photo was a clear blue sky - but now I'm convinced of the perfection of clouds!

Amazing blue sky and perfect reflection... I can't wait to see what kind of reflection you will catch with this lake now that it is covered with ice !

Ela said...

Beautiful views :)

Kathy said...

Really pretty photo.

Andrea said...

A badly needed reminder, I might add. Our skies are gray ... even our sunrises and sunsets are gray. There is no color to be had except the colorless white of snow. Looking forward to blue skies again.
