Its that time of the week again, here are two photos I took a few evenings ago at Wascana Lake during another beautiful sunset. (Skywatch Friday)

This photo was taken from atop Pine Island. I'm not too sure what you would call what that guy is doing out on the lake, 'surf rowing' perhaps???

(click on photos to enlarge) And be sure to check out other 'Skywatch Friday' posts from all over the world at: http://skyley.blogspot.com/

I'm sure one can use up at least 2 MB just around the lake.

Both are great, but I adore the first one.

Hey Guy, you have a pretty lake. How far would the walk around be?

Now that guy in the top picture, I think he is out practicing his walking on water skills.

It seems so peaceful overthere. I like both scenes, but since the light and the colors in the second one are somewhat softer, I prefer that one.
Enjoy your weekend!

Cool shots over the water!

Thanks for your comments at My Field of Vision.

Mojo said...

I thought the lake was beautiful when it was frozen and snow covered. But if it's possible, it's even more arresting in its liquid state!
