A little sunset action from my dock.

It’s December now and the colours of Autumn are long gone.
The memory is still here.
There is the occasional snowflake in the air this morning but thoughts of the season that is just ending are still in my mind.
Lake Nipissing provides many opportunities for activity over the Summer.
A calm quiet Sunday Morning.
Action on the water.
Normally Duchesnay Falls covers her secrets with lots and lots of water.
In late Summer the water flow is often quite low and one can go places where it would be quite dangerous to attempt during most of the year.
The mystery of what causes the big waves and sprays of water is revealed when the water is low.
It is quite the novelty to stand in places that often are quite inhospitable.
Cool Loon behaviour.
Helps me warm up on a cool day.
Waiting for the ice to melt on Lake Nipissing.
As the ice recedes on Lake Nipissing, warmer days hint at summer skies.
Slowly, Winter edges its way onto the landscape.
The snow is the obvious evidence that it leaves when it first makes its move.
More subtle is the stealth with which it snaps the lock on the water of our lake.
It has done its work near the shore.
The last will be done in the distance. Out of sight. Often at night.
The hoar frost on the south shore signals that our lake is very close to freezing over for the winter.
A couple of days should see it covered in ice.
We won’t see waves again until the end of April, if then.
Late November morning, crisp, windless.
Sparse snowflakes drift lazily to meet the water.
In the distance,
The Bay turns around the corner and meets the Lake.
Lake Nipissing has many moods.
Late in November come days when the wind is calm, the sky is tranquil and the light is wonderful.
This is the “waiting” time of year.
Quiet anticipation of events to come is in the air.
