20161102 Calm start to November

It has been damp and calm for the last few days.  Not at all like the typical November storms that stir up Georgian Bay this time of the year.  The calm wet air, sometimes combined with water surfaces, give some opportunities to capture some interesting scenes.  Some examples:

The “back road”  across from the farm…

Perhaps we are seeing the calm before the November storms?

  1. Oh, Tom – Thank you so much for these – will make room for the 2 here that are absolutely perfect for me. xoxo

  2. Yes, they were truly magnificent that morning. Very still with subdued lighting in the wet air gave an almost ethereal look to the reflections. But the reflections are not quite perfect, giving further interest to the scenes. I especially like the close up of the patch of lilies and rushes as the water surface transitions from reflective (of the sky) to refractive (of the water bottom). Meanwhile the mind tries to sort out the combination of direct view rushes and reflected view rushes. Maybe it is the complexity of the scene that engages me.
    It was quite a thrill to see it after I took the photo of the Adeline. It was even more thrilling when I first saw it on the computer at home. Quite a bit of magic in that camera!! 🙂
