The geometric shapes in the building and bridge nicely contrasted against the ripple softened reflections. Lovely.

Thank you, Janina, FWWS, Michael, Christian, blais, Tony, and Keith. I think this is one of the rare photos when the limitations of my ultra-zoom compact camera turn into an advantage. Zooming in across the river, it made the distant surfaces sort of "flat" here, and in this case, I think that works! I'm glad you like the result.

Some years ago, the boathouse was to be torn down. Instead, some enterprising people restored it, and it is now a very pleasant tea room and ice cream shop!

Peace and quiet after an exciting trip up to Quebec, eh? Good shot; I enjoy lakes and ponds.

Serenely beautiful photo Marilyn. I love the reflections, particularly the bridge, rippling in the river. It looks as if summer has finally arrived in Ontario :)

Greetings, Amelia

Thanks, May, Harri, Hank, and Amelia. I wish you could join me at the Boathouse for a cup of tea or an ice cream cone! It's a peaceful and pleasant place, and if you'd like, we could walk across the bridge to the little memorial park from which I took this picture.

A lovely composition, Marilyn, the sky reflections on the lake, framed by the bridge...
