Skies over Georgian Bay

I was in Meaford for coffee the other day, and took a few minutes to walk down by the harbour.  I was amazed at how clear the water was, especially with a polarizing filter on.  I think this is typical of Georgian Bay when the waves aren't crashing in.


 I started by exploring the east breakwater, the main sailboat harbour.  I may post some pictures of that too soon.  This view looks west from the breakwater, which you can easily walk along the top of, the Niagara Escarpment in the distance.

Then I headed over west of the harbour, to the small public park, where I went several times this winter (in snow 18" deep).  Looking a different direction in relation to the sun gives the water a different hue.

In between there's a small nearly enclosed bay that's popular with fishermen.  This is where I saw the ice fishing huts this winter.

But what amazed me was how clearly you could see the rocks on the bottom. I could have taken many more pictures.

One hundred miles that-a-way and you'd hit land again, someplace on the North Shore.

  1. Breathtakingly beautiful! My brother likes spending time up around the Sauble area, while my aunt and uncle and their children have spent a good deal of time up around Tobemory and Miller's Lake.

  4. Beautiful, especially that first shot. I like how you got right down on the water's edge and with a large DOF kept everything in sharp focus!

  7. That clear water reminds me of the shoreline between Wiarton & Tobermory & especially around Cypress Lake.. There's always something special about seeing rocks & boulders under water. Kinda like scuba diving without getting wet.....
