Boathouse

 Reflections at Jackson's Point, Lake Simcoe

These photos were taken in December before ice and snow covered Ontario.

A longer view


Yesterday (Thursday)

No reflections yesterday. The ice was so thick that cars were parked on it, so I walked on water (frozen, that is) to take this photo. They've put up a new sign on the building since last December.

To enjoy reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections HERE

What a serene scene, and I salute your courage in walking on water... even frozen!

You're something special - you can walk on water :))
Would have loved to go with you!
Beautiful pictures, especially the last one :)
Have a beautiful weekend

Jeevan said...

Beautiful boathouse! Superb capture with reflection... interesting to note a fuel pump on the jetty.

Kate said...

What a difference a few months make!

see you there! said...

Great reflections in the first shot. You are brave to walk on water, I'm not sure I would trust it.

Stay warm!

TexWisGirl said...

parking vehicles on ice...yikes!

the white trim made for some great reflections!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

The cars were parked on the ice.. incroyable! I just can't even imagine that EG. Boathouses always remind me of elegant days gone by :)

Judy said...

Winter added a sense of quietness to the whole scene.

Karen said...

More snow and ice in March than December! Great reflections in the first shot!

William Kendall said...

Quite a contrast in seasons, EG. I assumed it had to be a business... how many private boathouses would be that big?

George said...

Thanks for showing the two 'seasons' in this post. I think I prefer the watery reflections. I know I prefer those weather conditions.

Sylvia K said...

Amazing ice and what terrific reflections for the day!! We did see ice/snow like this when we lived in Montana, but certainly not recently or here in Portland! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!!

Nice reflections!

Margaret Adamson said...

Fantastic reflections and such a difference to today's scene.

Sandra said...

wow, all those beautiful reflections are frozen solid.. i really like the design of the boathouse, it is attractive and protective

Malyss said...

The contrast with/ without snow is soo impressive !

Michelle said...

Beautiful, warm shots!

Melissa said...

Great series. I like how we get a glimpse of the second story in the first shot, then the full view of the building, and then a reminder of lingering winter.

Ah, good old Bonnie Boats. Haven't been up to Jackson's Point for ages, perhaps I might go in the summer. Love the reflections on the water.

Taken For Granted said...

That boathouse has some great reflections as does the dock. Not too long before that ice melts.

Viera said...

Beautiful pictures... excellent reflection...

Fun60 said...

Great reflections. Can't believe they park cars on the ice.

VP said...

What a difference!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I've not seen a boat house before as nice as this one.

Andrea Priebe said...

You should link this to Geometric Friday ... great shots and love the comparison of now vs then. Looking forward to the "then" version if you get my gist. Nice post ...

Ginny said...

These are really good reflections! And I have never seen a boat house like this! Now to the function...do rich people keep their boats there?

Chandra Eswaran said...

What a difference a day can make! Lovely POV and photos, Tina!!
Have a Beautiful Day!!!
Peace :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Defined reflections. I have never seen a boat house design that includes a framing of an alternative colour like this. Great for reflections.

orvokki said...

Love the first photo and the reflections. Every day is different in these days.

Tahiti Daily Photo said...

I like the comparison between your shots

RedPat said...

I think it is going to be a late thaw, EG! Did you read about the guy who was trying to walk across Lake St Clair from Detroit to Windsor - he had to be rescued. I wonder if he had his passport? ;-)

Giga said...

It's in you is still very cold winter, I'm sorry. I prefer to look at the reflection in the water than on ice. Regards.

Cranberry Morning said...

Ooooo, love the photos, especially the first one. Beautiful water.

Small City Scenes said...

Wow what a difference. From wet and wild to parking ready.
