Last weekend's weather was partly sunny and perfect for driving around Lake Ontario, the Great Lake between Ontario and New York state. My husband I traveled to Rochester, just across the lake from Toronto.
Although the water was actually choppy in some areas, it wasn't here because of the breakwater. No birds were on the lake...not even sea gulls. However, we did see gulls, geese, ducks and swans further inland at the mouths of the many creeks that empty into the lake.

- East Gwillimbury is a rural town less than an hour north of Toronto, Canada's largest city. My family calls me CameraGirl because I take my camera with me wherever I go.
These are wonderful views!
Can just feel fall in the air.
Sniff, Sniff, yep fall is in the air.. :) I see gulls most often in the Walmart parking lot :D)
Here, in Europe, we would call it an Inland sea ; )
We got seagulls in Paris, around the Seine.
Wonderful autumnal picture.
Beautiful capture of the onset of autumn.
Looks like a huge lake, nice captured.
I just read your comment on MB's blog about the chestnut trees. You said that they were practically wiped out by a disease some years ago. Very sad, the trees are so beautiful! Big trunks and yellow leaves in autumn!
Here in Austria, they are also threatened by a disease. In Vienna, there are many alleys consisting of horse chestnut trees.
Fortunately, biocides are sprayed on the trees every year and the old leaves are burned, but I think you can do this only with a restricted number of trees and not with endless woods, as in Canada.
I think some kind of moth causes the disease.
About 20 years ago, elm trees were wiped out here in Central Europe and there was no help for them. Sad, isn't it?
Although it is beautiful, that water looks cold. I'm not sure why, maybe the fall colors. BJ
I lived in Toronto several years ago and always loved the lake. We crossed it a few times to the islands and the fun place there. Your photos for My World are lovely and I can truly identify with them all. Love the Hallowe'en decorations also; isn't it such a fun season!
Great shots, I love to be around water, the ocean, lakes, even little streams.
These are wonderful photos and make me long for the Great Lakes. Most of my family were from northern Ohio and I spent a lot of time around Lake Erie as a child. I would love to spent more time following each of the Great Lakes. Lovely!
More good shots of our Great Lakes. We took a ride to Lake Erie on Sunday, and I posted some pictures on my Watery Wednesday.
Have a happy day!
It's interesting not to have seen any birds, still with that view I'll bet they weren't really missed too much. Really nice shots! :-)
You always take such great photos and these are no exception.
Just gorgeous, EG! Your photos are wonderful! FIOS is Verizon's cable, TV, Internet service. I'm up and running and smiling! :)
Oh wow! That is so awesome!
How very cool. Love the lake and it does look autumnish with a little chill in the air. Perfect. MB
Beautiful! Your photos always are. Just love my visits here.
These are beautiful!
It certainly has that "feel" for a great driving down - nice clear skies and sun.
Wonderful water views, so peaceful
Such a beautiful scene of water and stretching rock wall! A magic place!
I thought I saw you waving as you went by...LOL...It was nice...
lovely views.........great photos as always...
Very, very nice. I really must make a trip up to your corner of the planet one of these days to take in scenery like this.
I can only say I wish I was there!
