a summer sunset on the river





When my sister, Maggie, was home for a visit we went down to the causeway at the river to take sunset photos.  I don't think I'd been down there since she was home 2 years ago.  We picked a great evening to get some photos after a hot sunny day. 

The water was calm and provided great reflections of the shore and sky.

There are always people fishing for bass along the shore.
The culverts are where the boats go through to get to the main part of the river/headpond.





A boat heads to the marina as a group of Canada geese swim by.

I love the smooth as satin waves from the motor boat and the soft sky reflections.

What a beautiful scene!  We really enjoyed this sunset evening and then we went up the hill and took pictures of the full moon which I shared before.

I always enjoy sunsets and sunrises (if I'm up that early).  I hope you're having a wonderful week.  We are enjoying our vacation and our sweet grandsons and, are still waiting for the arrival of baby #3 who seems to want to stay put for now.  All in God's time.

Blessings,
Pam

  11. Sunsets are beautiful at any time, but when the sunsets over the water...there is a special feeling of peacefulness to it.

  13. Beautiful pic's as always. Funny how I rarely get sunrise pictures...I guess I'm not awake enough to think of getting the camera as the sun comes up.

    We'll wait for your happy news along with you!

  15. Wonderful colors and reflections on the water. We are not near any large bodies of water, so it is a treat to see your beautiful photos.

  16. Wonderful. The water almost has a texture, as though you could reach out and pick it up like a length of silk.

  22. Your photos are so beautiful. I know what you mean by satin water - it's so soft and smooth sometimes, isn't it? The pink-tinged sky and water are just lovely.
    We are heading to Alberta on Saturday, skirting around Calgary to Red Deer where Tim's mother lives. I'll wave and hope the baby comes soon.

  23. What a beautiful place and you captured such lovely light. I love the photo of the boat with the geese. How nice to spend this time with your sister. How exciting to wait for the blessed new arrival, too. I guess the stars need to align just right. xo Karen

  24. It is incredible how it all unfolds. Wonderful captures, and I especially like the rippling water photo. Best wishes for your new grand baby-on-the-way. I am on the mend from my eye surgery, so the weekend won't be the best. Also, my dear elderly mom had a massive stroke and she is now in a coma. She may pass this weekend. I am not in a position to travel right now, and there is no way that DH & I can be separated with DH's health issues. It's another one of those situations that is very much in God's hands.

  25. Hi Pamela,
    Your photos by the river are beautiful, especially the ones taken at sunset. So glad that you are enjoying your vacation with your family. So sorry that I haven't commented in awhile...we've been traveling so much that time has just slid by this month...but I have been peeking at your blog when I could and thinking of you. Enjoy this late-summer weather!
