A summer sunset from a week or more ago. I was creating images looking the other way and turned around to see this great scene. This reminds me to always be looking around to see what I might be missing.

Wolf Lichen

The morning sunlight is caught in the bright wolf lichen as it clings to the old shake roof of a cabin in the woods. Mother Nature has been painting with her beautiful colours again.


Not far from shore, through the cat tails is a dock leading to the water. Old aluminum boats line the dock waiting for someone to take them for a row. This boat was a Simpson Sears boat giving an idea of its age.

As a kid, our family had an aluminum boat like this that was power by a motor (not oars). It was the best boat. It hauled people, groceries, construction materials and even a large cast iron wood fired cooking stove. It was a work horse but also a pleasure to take around the lake. Some boats don’t look fancy and don’t need to be fancy to be a great boat.

Smokey Sunrise

As the sun rose higher into the morning sky it started to break through the smoke from near by forest fires. It brought an amazing colour to the early morning on the beach of a quiet little lake. A peace full place to sit and enjoy the sound of silence.

Water Wagon

In the old days, they tried to keep the dust down on the dirt roads. This is from Heritage Park and they water the road the horse wagon rides go on to keep the dust down. I liked red and white of colour of the wagon and the dust around the horse’s hooves.
