The other day I braved the bitter cold air and water to stand in the creek for a close up of the hoar frost on the bent branches of bushes along the water’s edge.
It reminded me of the last time I waded into cold winter waters for some icy shots. I shared a number of those shots in this post which explains the frozen lake surface in the image below. It’s from the 2015 shoot I selected the image for our calendar this month.

I’m always fascinated by shades of purple that appear in a mist being chased by the rising sun and enjoy watching the islands and far shore being uncloaked.

July could be considered the month of fireworks in North America as both Canada on the 1st and the United States on the 4th celebrate anniversaries of their formation as countries. This year will mark 150 years for Canada!
Where ever and when ever you enjoy lights in the sky this month do so responsibly.
The more daylight we have the slower the sun seems to set. Happy summer.

Typically ice leaves the lake in front of our place some time between late April and early May. We eagerly await this change.

It’s always bittersweet for us to have summer come to the end. Because we work seasonally, the 7 days per week, from late spring to mid fall gets tiring and the slower pace of the off season is a welcome change. However we are sad to lose warm, sunny days to cooler, damp, shorter ones.
We are thankful to be living this life and take pleasure in each day at the lake.
Summer is flying by! Hope that if you haven’t already spent time on or near a body of water, you will soon.
