Through Tree Limbs/Watery Wednesday

Lake Simcoe just before sunset

A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.
~Henry David Thoreau

I like the way you have the sun peeking through the tree's branches. Very nice shot.

This is such a peaceful shot. I love sitting by a lake and daydreaming...I think lakes can be an eye into your own mind.

I bet the Lake Simcoe water's still pretty cold, we haven't really had much summery weather yet, have we?

What a tranquil shot. I like lakes and it is neat to find them scattered here and there. We have lots of small lakes out this way. Nice shot.

i always forget about 'watery wednesday' but i have a water shot for today. MB

George said...

I like the sun's reflection on the water as well as the sun peeking between the leaves. A gorgeous picture.

Beautiful photo, EG. The reflection in the water is fabulous.

What a perfectly beautiful shot through the trees, over the lake with that spot of sun on the water!

I answered your question on the last post. Come see my rainy roses today!

This is a fabulous photo, just love that scenery and the reflection of the sun on the water, a beautiful sight to behold.

Barb said...

Aaaah. My favorite place in the world to be is lakeside at sunrise and sunset. I may have to sit and stare at this awhile. Perfection.

Magnificent place and perfect shot!
I liked a lot that quote by Henry Thoreau!
Thanks for sharing

Oh, take me there! Lovely scene. I have a watery scene for today, but not nearly as pretty (not yet written, still in the head). Maybe I'll concentrate on history since I don't see the beauty.

Is it warm enough for an evening picknick?

That's a beautiful shot and I love that quote. :-) And to answer your question, that is a camelia in the water.

Petit Eyekiss said...

Nice place for meditation!

Oh that's a beautiful quote, nearly as beautiful as the lake.

All of the photos so far this week are so calming.. I really needed them to be.. Thanks.

Sara Chapman said...

What a beautiful and thought-provoking quote, also. In ancient Chinese symbolism of the I Ching, the Lake is the symbol of Pleasure. And interestingly, Water is the symbol for Danger! But the lakeside is my favorite place, it's true.

Michelle said...

What a beautifully composed shot.

RuneE said...

A beautiful frame, and it made for a very nice foreground too.
