Dog Lake

The lake was pretty today.


  1. This is in kind of day when I want to have either an inner tube or a row boat so I can go out in the center of the lake and do absolutely nothing.

    • That would be good! I’d opt for the boat though: there’s ice on the shoreline of this lake now.

  2. My first reaction upon seeing this was: WOW! That blue is incredible. So intense. And, I love that little, tiny wisp of a cloud in the back there. Gorgeous!

    • I have plenty of photos of the lake already, but with the sky that blue today I couldn’t resist one more.

    • Yes, it was nice to have a day like that again: winter’s coming.

  4. Is that snow in the Missions? What a peaceful place! (I prefer the name Rainbow Lake:)

    • This shot is from the other direction: those are the Coeur d’Alenes. The Missions are white now too.

      I always think of it as Dog Lake because of memories I have of the place from back in the 40’s and 50’s. The name change never quite registered with me.

  6. Don’t you love the blue in the sky this time of year? I like kcjewel’s comment…it is definitely blue-tiful!

    • I do love it. We haven’t had much this fall though. The bluest is when the arctic air comes in during the winter, but I don’t even want to think about that!

  7. Oh my, it looks so inviting! As warm as it is here, in West Texas, I’d love to take a swim in it!

    • It does look inviting, but it’s past the time of year when it would be comfortable. We are getting into the 20′ at night here now.

  8. Oh, my. I love the blue of the sky and water.

  9. Not a cloud in the sky! The blue lake reflecting the blue sky is brilliant.

    • A clear sky and just the right light angle. Nature can put on a show, can’t she!

    • It has many different looks depending on the weather. You just have to be there at the right time.

  11. What a beautiful serene image, I could just kick back and take it all in, wonderful work Terry !!

    • I love it when it looks like that. It will soon start showing ice at the edges, then freeze over completely in mid-winter. Still pretty though.
