So beautiful! Glad to see I'm not the only ones using photos to remind them of spring! It's snowing and quite cold in Seattle. Really a great shot! Thanks for sharing!

Summer in...Winter and snow! It's a prototypal combination!

Lovely photo. I'm sure it's nice to remember the location as it was in warmer weather and look forward to its reemergence from winter's cold, hard grasp.

Arija said...

Superb reflections of the mottled sky!

Susan said...

What water, and such a sky! I love the shadows and light on the waves; I could watch it forever if I was sitting there with it. The brightness cheered me up, sitting here on such a dark cold night--thanks!

Ces said...

Wow! I just love this photograph. I seldom have a chance of photographing the sky with water, so this is much appreciated.

Dewdrop said...

I look forward to spring for different reasons... but it looking likes a lot of us are feeling reminiscent today. Great shot!

A perfect spot for a picnic. Perfect wheather too. Such a summery feel to it. Lovely picture.

Once we get past the first day of winter (only three days...whoo hoo!) we can start the countdown to spring, right?

Titania said...

A very beautiful lake and surroundings. I live now near the Pacific. We have wonderful picturesque beaches but my heart jumps when I see a lake. A lake to me is very familiar while the ocean scares me.{Sharks and mountainous waves!

Shannon said...
