Brooding Sky Over Lake Of Two Rivers

I am finishing my series of archive shots today from Algonquin Park with something decidedly gloomy. This fall shot in the rain is at Lake Of Two Rivers. The lake is less welcoming now than it was to the canoeists I showed you some days back, but it still makes for a dramatic photograph.

  1. Your dramatic shot is great


    One Democratic governor, Hawaii’s Gov. Neil Abercrombie, already went down in a primary last month. (The loss actually boosted Democrats’ hopes of holding the seat.)

  5. You can just look at this water and tell that the weather is about to change. Nature is so transparent sometimes! Great capture!
