Sky Watch Friday # 48 - Lake Views

Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were Mr. Linky problems last week but there were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

Triangle Lake can give some wonderful views and great reflections.
This was my first trip to Crystal Lake, isn't the dock amazing.
A view of Lake Hodgson looking at the dam.
Water and skies, how can you find a better message.

Beautiful shots!
Love the reflections. That lake must be very clear. The red clay base here makes everything murky.
I like how they built a new dock and left the old one to rot and decay. :) It does make for a picturesque photo.

You signed in late today - I was wondering about you.

Jeri said...

Beautiful shots! That dock looks like it might be a bit tricky to navigate!!

Photo Cache said...

perfect catch for sky watch! God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be..... Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Have a great weekend!

James said...

I hope you didn't walk on the dock.
I really like the bottom picture. I'm a sucker for big puffy clouds in a blue sky.

Michele said...

Oh wow, very impressive photos indeed!!
How is Crystal Lake for fishing? Anything good in there besides that fantastic view!??!
Beautiful post for Sky Watch!

Beautiful skies, Tom. I wonder why they left the old dock there in the water.

alicesg said...

Very beautiful photos. Looked like a nice place to relax and catch a fish or two. Am glad I can sign in today, last week, I cant signed in.

Nice reflections! Uh, it might be a bit hard to get out to the end of the dock in the second photo. :-)

Jack and Joann said...

Fishing Guy, how are you doing? These must be the days you dream of when your boat is in dry dock. Nice relection in the first photo. I'm really glad the Skywatch meme is working correctly this weekend. You take it easy now.

hip chick said...

I love that middle one. Makes me start to think about my lake side vacation coming up next month.

SandyCarlson said...

Lovely serene shots. The second one has me wondering what happened to the pier.

vincibene said...

Wonderful views!

Jim said...

Great reflection.

Naturegirl said...

Peace and solitude is what I see in these photos of Lake and sky!
It seems that we both have been relaxing near glass calm lakes lately!It's good for our healing ..certainly a place with no stress!
Enjoy your sky watching! NG

Darla said...

It does appear very peaceful there. Great photos.

Hi Tom, awesome photo's!!
We never got the chance to go to the lake last weekend but are going to try to leave work early today to head to our camper by Rocky Fork/Paint Creek Lake!!!
Hoping to catch some crappie and catfish!
Take care and have a great weekend.

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

I can't make a choice ...
The second one has a wonderful broken mirror, but the third looks so friendly and nice ...
Enjoy your weekend!

Danielle said...

Wow, cool shots. Dock needs some work eh? Looks like a great place to fish.

Lanny said...

The top one is my favorite, thanks for sharing your photos and thoughts!

spookydragonfly said...

Oh, I love the reflecting water scenes, too! Many times looking like a fine painting. Looking back in your posts and you showed a Pufferbelly restaurant. Back near my hometown... Middleburg Hts. had a Pufferbelly Restaurant,too. I really enjoyed going there, that might be closer to you!

Ken Conger Photography said...

Great shots as always. Top one is my fav. Blue Skies.

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

All great shots! The last one feels like the view from the front of a rowboat or canoe - very relaxing photo.

Regina said...

Wonderful. Nice view. Excellent shots as always.

Mary said...

These look great! Having just come from Ohio I know what a beautiful state it is and this lake and sky is just perfect.

The Birdlady said...

Those are so peaceful and beautiful. Our skies have been changing daily from bright blue to very angry in the afternoons. We are soggy!

Dot O said...

Great sky shots! I especially like the one with the puffy clouds.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I don't think you can find a better message!
Beautiful pics, Tom!

Oz Girl said...

Looks like a great place to hang out... I had to enlarge that 2nd photo, I thought, is that dock crashed in the water??! And by golly, yes it was! ;)

Merisi said...

You said it, no better message, of peace and quiet enjoyment, thank you! :-)

Arija said...

Such pretty skies in and out of the water. The first is so lush and green.

T and S said...

Your compositions are getting better by the day Tom. Beautiful landscape shots, liked the entire series. The earlier posts of the deer in habitat is another beautifully composed image...Thomas

Dina said...

That's a dock?? Be careful!
Nice place. Any place with water is a nice place.
Shalom to you, Fishing Guy!

Tipper said...

Seeing the reflections in the water-is a great way to start my day : ) pretty photos!

Gretchen said...

Always gorgeous photos! I love coming here to see what visual feast you've prepared for the day. :)

Happy SWF!!!

Rose said...

I sure would like to be sitting there with a fishing pole...beginning to think I am not going to have any time again this year to go fishing.

Those sure are pleasant pictures to look at.

ascu75 aka Don said...

nice reflections that is my favourite I want to be there and just do nothing which if I was to be fishing is pretty much what I would be doing I cant remember the last fish I caught XXX Don

George said...

I like your sky pictures -- the sky and lake in the last picture are outstanding as is your picture of Triangle Lake.

Marvelous views this week ... LOVE the reflections in the first but could sit and look at all of those views indefinitely ... just because.
Hugs and blessings,
