Georgian Bay View

Driving up to Meaford the other day the skies were a brilliant blue, with long lines of clouds coming out of the northwest.  Halfway there I go over the Niagara Escarpment on a steep hill, and the view opens out, all the way down to Georgian Bay.


This is my favourite view of the bay along that road.  Those blue silos look like they're near the bay, but they're not, they're just half-way there, on the peak of another hill that hides the town of Meaford.

That one above was a bit of a telephoto shot; this one is what I see through the car window driving over the brow of the hill.

The Bruce Trail crosses the road at this point, and a short distance down the fencerow the view is a little different.  Which do like best, this one that is mostly sky....?

... or this one, the same view with more of the hayfield and its current crop of dandelions visible in the foreground?

In any case it was a beautiful sunny day, spring rapidly turning the world to green.

  1. Really beautiful scenery. I like the long view of the road toward the water. As for the two photos you asked us about I think I prefer the one with more sky in it. Enjoy the holiday weekend.

  4. Photo #1, with more sky, and that leads my eye to the distance. Every one a winner today, beautiful springtime colours.

  5. What a gorgeous long distance view. That field is yellow with dandelions. The landscape looks very lush and green.

  10. I'm afraid I like the one with the dandelions, although they are both very nice. I love your pretty blue sky, too. :-)
