Just looked through this thread again and there are so many wonderful photos posted. I'm glad I looked through it again. Made me smile.

Here are a few pictures I took earlier this year.


Crab apples at my parents house.

In the parking lot outside my workplace. It had rained all night and I was greated with this amazing image at the end of my shift. As I drove home a light rain fell, each droplet illuminated in sunlight. It was like droplets of gold falling from the sky. When i got home I sat and watched crystal clear droplets fall from the tree leaves, then shatter like glass when they hit the pavement. It was an incredibly beautiful morning.

My daughter in the canoe last summer out back of our place and my brother and I in a high school production of Calamity Jane. He is on the far left playing Lieutenant Dann Gilmartin and I am on the far right playing Francis Fryer. I think it was in '78

'77 photo of a band I was in during a high school assembly. We were called the Basement Boogie Band. Fast forward 30 years and the same four guys reformed in '07 to play in a band for a few years......

PAG, I just love the way you described the rain in your picture. The picture is great, but the picture in my mind after reading your post is even better!

I wish I had a lake "back behind" my place. How beautiful! My Dad lives on a lake in Michigan. That is about as close as I can get to that.

That is the Ottawa River. It separates Ontario from Quebec for a stretch. The land you see on the horizon is in the Province of Quebec.

I feel the same way about the US. Been to a few places, but not too far south.
