Saturday Snapshot - Lake Ontario


I took this picture last weekend with my cell phone so the quality isn't very good. I was hoping to capture the amazing contrast between the dark clouds on the horizon and the almost fluorescent turquoise light coming from the water. It's not nearly as sharp as I would have liked, but you get the idea.

It's a gorgeous shot and rather good for a cell phone. Such a pretty view.

Beautiful! And I love the tree branches against the sky like etchings. It looks like a painting....

Thanks for sharing.

Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

It's very beautiful there. I've always wanted to visit that area but so far have only made it to Lake Erie (on the US side). One day...

Leslie said...

I can see the clouds rolling in and the gnarly tree gives it a mysterious look. I half expect to see a serpent rising out of the water... just kidding!

Kaye said...

Oh, I love it! Has almost an eerie quality to it and the tree branches are fantastic contrast.

Trish, I love this photo! I can totally imagine a woman in a long white dress, her feet bare, standing there looking out to sea. It's a ghost story of some sort....hmm, I'm going to have to think this out.

Very nice! The branches from the tree give it a little bit of an eerie feeling.

I think it's a great shot, the tree itself stands out as well as the ocean and the water. Very cool picture Book Savvy Babe

Lovely. My cell phone takes terrible pictures. Time to upgrade!

I love the contrast between the tree and the background!

Vicki said...

What a peaceful place. I'd love to be sitting under that tree, looking at the water and reading a book.

The softness of the lines is actually quite nice. I think you captured a great moment.

Alyce said...

Those blue colors and the contrast with the tree branches are very pretty!

Shrink to Fit said...

Very nice! I love that it looks like a painting. My fav kind of picture.

Laura said...

It's still so beautiful though! I hate when you can't quite capture things as you've seen them- I guess I need a better camera!

Bonnie said...

This is a beautiful picture, very atmospheric with the tree branches and bluish light across the water. It has a mysterious quality about it.

Christine Rains said...

Beautiful photo. Sets such a mysterious mood.

Eva @View from the Hillside said...

Not bad for a cell phone. The whole things looks a bit spooky with those dark clouds. :-)

Paulita said...

I agree that there's an eerie quality. Love the tree in the foreground too. Here's Mine

It might not have turned out the way you intended but it is a beautiful photo! You have a good eye and did a great job. :)

Staci said...

I think that is a great photo especially taken with a phone!

laughingwolf said...

[like i told beth, i despise the damn word verifiers... too much crap for old eyes - she got rid of hers]

Great picture!

I love the silhouette--so dramatic against the blue!
