SkyWatch Friday #42

I have spent my last five days in Ontario in "cottage country" with my sister and nephew and it has been a mixed bag of beautiful weather, thunderous storms and memories.


(click on photo to appreciate the detail)

I have forgotten how beautiful the rock of the Canadian Shield can be....


and what it is like to walk in a deciduous forest at sunset.


Last night as I walked around the lake at dusk I remembered to look up....

and I was not disappointed!

Ontario has treated me well over the last two months.

I leave with wonderful memories of family and many new friends and experiences.

For more beautiful skies from around the world why not join us at
SkyWatch Friday.

Not sure which "cottage country" you are in, but the Canadian Shield is my favourite bit of the province. Even though it makes me feel very, very small!

The 3rd shot was my favorite. Beautiful sky shots.

That rock is a work of art in itself. I've never seen such closely packed wave-like layers. And your temporary home seems very generous with its cloud formations too.

Glad you had such a nice visit. Our trees and starting to get their leaves and the weather is warming. Looks like a good time to be coming home. I invite you to come see the results of our Powell River Star Party. - Margy

Carol: Very lovely looks at the sky but that rock is outstanding. A work of art by the master artisan.
