    I haven't posted many photos lately. I seem to have lost my jones for photography, so I'm mostly shooting when I happen to be somewhere interesting or scenic, rather than just going out and looking for stuff to shoot. We spent most of last week at (and traveling back and forth to) my wife's aunt and uncle's lake house way up in Ontario, Canada, near a little town called Port Loring. Some family shots elsewhere, but here are a few scenic shots and a couple of their adorable little dogs, Riley and Lacey. Riley is the same breed of the dog we lost back in February and he reminds me of her a lot. And Lacey is just way too cute! Really nice place, and a great time...

    thumbs up from me....northern Wisconsin and Canada are fairly interchangeable if you're looking at lakes.....and I've used scenes like that for my "ideal of beauty" for a very long time. As long as there are not a ton of mosquitos, that is my version of heaven right there. Dogs welcome, of course.

    Nice series Ray. That looks like a really great place to spend time with family/friends.
    Some really idyllic images there but #4 just pops off the screen.

    Looking at the map as we planned how to get up there, I was sort of surprised at how close it is to Michigan and even Wisconsin - I can imagine it's not all that different based on the latitude... Their place is for sale and I'd almost think about a relocation (depending on November...), but 1 - it's waaaay too cold up there for me in the winter, 2 - its probably more isolated than I'd like full time, and 3 - it's only accessible by boat and there's no electricity except for what you can make with a generator and I'm just not that tough... Oh, and the place isn't insulated... Other than THAT, though ;)

    I'm glad #4 is getting some love here from Joe and Lucille - it's my favorite of the bunch by a lot but none of the non-photographers who have seen this stuff on Facebook have given it a second look. My wife really likes it too though.

    Thanks folks...

    Does the prop on the boat have something to keep it from getting entangled in all the vegetation?

    He was able to pull the motor up so the prop was just below the surface. But we had a pretty clear path through the vegetation. I was hanging over the bow checking for rocks, but the plants were no problem...

    Agree on number 4 being a stand-out. Before I read anyone else's comments I stopped on that one and lingered.

    I feel the tranquility of the third and of course the doggies behind the screen ;)
