Can someone call up Cottage Life magazine and tell them we have their next front cover right here? Sometimes the lighting and mother nature just works in your favor… Very thankful to our friends for hosting us this weekend at their cottage on North Muldrew Lake, south of Gravenhurst. Sunset was at 4:56pm and this is around 5:15pm Saturday, during a period called blue hour. It works particularly well when there is fresh white snow to reflect the light. Going to print this on canvas as a thank you gift!
How does 500 deg F. sound? Stuffed the stove with 7 logs to heat the cottage a few weeks ago and then thought the flame would make a fascinating picture. There is nothing like a hot fire, glass of wine, and time with the family on snowy winter weekend.
The first week August at our friends cottage on Bay Lake, Muskoka, enjoying the night time view of the milky way and stars while sitting by the fire.
Thanksgiving weekend looking out toward Bigwin Island on Lake of Bays, from the Dorset public pier. Fall colors were at their peak, with spectacular reds, yellows, oranges, and deep purples. Another reason to love life in Canada!
Surprise! April 15 and we find 2 feet of snow at our friends cottage. We planned to open it up for the summer, however found ourselves tobogganing down the driveway, building snowmen and having snowball fights. Highlight was having a drink on the snow covered dock, in a Muskoka chair, surrounded by frozen Bay Lake.
What a difference a year makes! This is new year’s eve coming into 2015, with a fresh 2 ft of snow – so much fell that we chose to stay another day to play outside. Fast forward to this new year, and while we absolutely had lots of fun with our friends, it did not look quite like this. Happy new year to all.
