Spring Along the Lake
quite the symbol of hope then, this young tree. We don't get views like this over lakes here, could almost be a seascape! Nice light and details, hope you're up and about soon :o)
(the DOF doesn't bother me at all)
When I was in Ontario a long time ago I remember lake Ontario in this same spring light, the same colour of the water and the leaves just beginning to burst. Somewhere nearby a Red-winged Blackbird was singing its long drawn-out squeeling song.
This is a fine simple image but for me its the strong lighting that evokes old memories!
Thanks for sharing this.

This is a nice image and a hopeful story. Just when people start to wake up and get into gear to save the environment we get hit with global warming. **sigh** I hope we'll have something left to save.
I'm glad you are doing better.

Beautiful composition showing us Lake Ontario that rather looks like a big ocean! I like the tree in bud and the stones in the foreground. Beautiful colours too. I think people everywhere are becoming aware of the need to maintain our environment - but there is soooo much to be done! This sounds like a fine effort though.
TFS and regards, Ulla

This is a scene I never get to see unless I travel. The lake looks very beautiful with the tree in the foreground. It looks like the water goes on forever. I love the all the shades of blue in the sky and in the water. Everything looks so peaceful.

Simple but very nice subject and excellent picture. You managed to create 3D-image of the scene with natural pleasant colours and lights, perfect DOF and details of the entire scene. My brother live in Canada (Toronto) now and dreams to move on the Ontario Lake shore. My kind regards and TFS.

Hello Silke. Nice framing of this tree against the lake. The loose branch makes it beautiful in tall frame. Well done and best regards. Jusni
