Not The Deep Blue Sea

Not the ocean, it's Lake Huron.
Pinery Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada

Lake Huron is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is bounded on the east by the Canadian province of Ontario and on the west by the state of Michigan in the United States. Lake Huron is the second largest of the Great Lakes, with a surface area of 23,000 square miles (59,600 km2) making it the third largest fresh water lake on Earth.

Such a gorgeous lake it is and your capture is superb, Karen, as always!! I have seen it from the Michigan side as my oldest daughter lives in Michigan. This shot does indeed look like the ocean and gives you a feel for how HUGE the lake is!! Hope your week is going well.

Beautiful shot! It does look like the ocean - one realises when seeing these lakes why they are called the "Great Lakes".
