It's not very often that you see Lake Superior as calm as it is in Katie Tormala's first photo. Perfect water conditions for her kayak to glide along smoothly toward the clouds off in the distance. Then Katie captured another water scene involving some interesting clouds that are filtering the rays of the sun making the sky seem bluer and the water of the Big Lake almost gray. Over in Big Bay, near Marquette, Doug Grusser found the last photo, with nightfall just in the early stages over Lake Independence. I love this time of the evening, where the setting sun is brightening and coloring the clouds and sky.

Lovely photos, are those blue flags peeking out of the grasses in the third?

I am vicariously enjoying a ride in that kayak today. The lake looks smooth enough not to make it precarious. ;-)

Mary says: Cute, Gary. ;-)

Very relaxing photos!

Relaxation...peace...I think I've heard of those... I haven't personally experienced them in a while. Thanks for the views.

I like the last photo showing the wild iris. If the picture is current, it's a reminder that the flower schedule is different Up North.
