Saturday Snapshot - Lake Ontario Sky


Remember Hurricane Irene from a couple weeks ago? This is what it looked like from our end of Lake Ontario looking southeast while it was drenching the eastern states. The view was more dramatic in real life, with the tops of the cumulous clouds visible over the purple, late day horizon.

You had a much better view then we did in Virginia Beach :)
That is an award winning photo.

I don't think we are going to forget Hurrican Irene any time soon. Floods, roads closed, power out. We missed part of our beach vacation due to evacuation. Your photo makes it look beautiful though. Isn't perpective a funny thing?

The colors are gorgeous and I love the shot with those beach grasses in the foreground. Sorry that others suffered from Irene, but still able to enjoy your photo.

Beautiful! I am always trying to get shots like that but the sky rarely cooperates.

Beautiful colors. It's amazing how something so destructive can produce such beauty elsewhere.

That is a beautiful photo - sunset colors like that are always more beautiful in person though. :) It must have been stunning!

That is absolutely GORGEOUS.
Looks like an ocean!
And people have SWAM across that thing, that's what I find so amazing. I get very out-of-breath just thinking of such a prospect.
