On water….

  1. Is that a very shallow lake? Looks like you could walk out for a bit before you were over your head.

    • I haven’t actually been out on it, Allen, but I did read that it is about 35 feet deep, depending on the snow-melt, etc. And yes, it does look like you could walk out a ways before dropping beneath the surface.

      • Wow-35 feet is shallow for a lake. Or at least it would be around here. The water must stay pretty warm.

        • Well…it’s a mountain lake and my understanding is that those are often cirques or bowls between and among the peaks and ridges that are filled and maintained with snow-melt…or…they could be filled calderas from ancient/older volcanic mountains…so I don’t really know how shallow that is for mountain lakes…and the lake is at 10,050 feet elevation…so it was still nice and cold when I rinsed my hands in it. I would imagine that it would be VERY refreshing for a minute or two, but think it might be a bit cold a couple of minutes later. 🙂

    This will have to be my dose of the great outdoors today. Wouldn’t mind being somewhere like that.

    • Happy to have been able to help you with that, James…and no, I wouldn’t mind being there, either…..

  3. Beautiful. I love canoeing and I love lakes, so this is a perfect photo for me 🙂

    • I rather enjoy being out there on the water, as well, Jane…something peaceful about it, paddling about…. I’m glad the photo was perfect for you! Thank you. 🙂

  5. Good Grief! What a gorgeous photograph! The perspective is everything here. This isn’t just a photo of a boat on a lake. Creative and VERY well composed. 🙂

    • No, it’s not just a photo of a boat on a lake, George…thank you for seeing that…and for your very kind words. 🙂

    • I’m with you there, Dezra…thank you. 🙂

  7. Absolutely beautiful. Reminds me of the Canadian canoe I used to have.. being on the water gives a very different perspective.

    • Thank you, Dreams and Zeros…being out on the water does give a different perspective, surely. My older son and I had our little ones out with us hiking about, so this one was actually taken from the shore…. I’m glad you enjoyed it the picture…I hope those were all good memories of you and your Canadian canoe. 🙂

  8. Love your beach image. Still trying to picture how you took that low angle…. 😉

    • Thank you, Miss Gunta…. I had my little point-and-shoot on automatic and just tried to get all of that pretty stuff inside the frame…it’s about as technical as that. 😉

      The RAW info from the computer says that the F-number was 6.8 and the focal length was 5.8mm…and the exposure time was 1/350…. I’m sure all of that means something pretty cool, but the camera did it all without my help…although I did press the button…. 😉

      • That’s some seriously great button pressing 😉

        August 18, 2012 at 12:41 pm

        • Yeah…I impress myself sometimes…I suppose “surprise the hell out of myself” is more accurate, though. 😉

  10. The wavy light on the rocks in the foreground is lovely, it pulls you into the water…

    August 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    • Thank you, Karen…the water was very inviting, too, on our warmish afternoon…it would probably have been nice to have actually been pulled into it. 🙂

  11. Lovely, lovely shot. So beautifully composed.
