“Lake Ontario Majesty”

I had the pleasure of being able to photograph Lake Ontario at different times of the day on a recent visit to South Eastern Ontario. These images are just a few of the moments that I enjoyed! Have a look!

Beautiful sunrise on Lake Ontario with golden reflections on the water!
“Lake Ontario Morning Reflections”

This photograph was made on a very cold and windy morning on the shores of Lake Ontario near Hamilton, Ontario. The sunrise was spectacular though, with golden reflections all along the water near the shore!
Strong waves roll onto the shore near Burlington, Ontario!
“Waves Keep on Rolling”
The waves were rolling in fast and furious on Lake Ontario this cold but sunny morning near Burlington Ontario!
Windblown beach grasses, waves, and beautiful clouds on Lake Ontario!
“Then the Wind Came”
Another wonderfully windy but gorgeous view of Lake Ontario from the grassy area above the beach!

Beautiful cloudy sky on Lake Ontario!
“Cotton Candy Over Ontario”
Last light of the day and the sky turned into cotton candy for just a few short minutes!

Thanks as always for stopping by! 🙂

“Dawn of Calm”

In the last post I gave us a bit of summer warmth and cheer. Something I think lots of us needed at the time! In this post I’ve brought you an abstract image of a sunrise from earlier this the fall on a cold morning off of Lake Huron.

The colors in this were just like an apricot with golden tones. Really beautiful in it’s own right. This didn’t start out as an abstract, but as I went to process it, it seemed to me that’s just where it fits.

You won’t find anything in this image except pure gorgeous color, a clear horizon, and a calming spirit. Relax and enjoy! 🙂

“My Ten Favorite Images from 2012”

This year has be an interesting one for me. I had the chance to do more travelling than usual, which gave me many more photographic opportunities. Sometimes though it’s the images you take that are close to home that you end up liking the best. Here are ten images mostly from the late summer through autumn that I like the best. I have many more that I could say the same for, but for the sake of brevity I will limit it to Ten. The images are in no particular order. Enjoy!

After going through so many images, it was really difficult to decide, and had to leave out many that I would have liked to include. You can find links on this blog to my sites and where to view more images.
Best wishes to everyone, both now and in the coming year!!!

“Dawn’s Early Light”

   The sunrises over the Great Lakes tend to be exceptionally beautiful in my opinion. This image here was taken over Lake Huron in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The colors in the sky were awesome. I’ve noticed that Michigan’s UP has many types of cloud formations that are quite common to the area, but are less common, or even unseen in many other places. They aren’t completely represented here, but in future posts I’ll be showing you some of what I think are some wonderful and beautiful cloud formation images. Enjoy! 🙂
