Round Robins: Not of This Season

Blue Sky

The idea this time around is to show something from another season. It was 16 degrees below zero when I left for work last week, and we haven't seen a boat, liquid water, or blue sky like this in ages.

Check out the rest of the entries at Round Robins Photo Challenge, and escape the winter blahs.

The sky is always grey here too. I wished spring was here already !

Take me away...all I would need would be some sunglasses and a good book. Then after I got tired of doing that I would do a little fishing. Then probably fall asleep basking in the sun. Oh, to feel that all over my skin again would be wonderful!

Hi Vicki :)

Hon, this is STUNNING! I feel like I could just step into the that picture and just escape! Very BEAUTIFUL! :) Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Hugs, Carly

What a PERFECT photo, it really puts us into the scene. I can just feel the sun as I lay back in the boat as my husband fishes. When we get the boat out, I read and relax he will do some fishing or skiing.

Thank you .. I NEEDED this photo!

Ah, a perfect photo of a wonderful summer day. It reminds me of when we used to have a sailboat and used it to escape the summer heat. Sometimes we didn't even take it out on the water to do that! Just the river breezes would cool us down!

I have never seen such beautifully-photographed water. Ever. The ripples, the reflections, the overall texture and the color, plus the boat's edge pointing to it add up to an overall effect that is simply astonishing. I know it sounds like I'm being over-dramatic and exaggerating, but I mean it most sincerely.

This photo is proof that some higher power has to be controlling this!
