1. Sunsets over water are one on my favourite things.

What gorgeous skies and what a glorious way to end a day -- any day!! Wonderful capture! Thanks for sharing the beauty! I hope you have a lovely weekend! Enjoy!

Laura said...

BEautiful Karen... I don't think I could wade in just any water... too cold is not for me. Then again I'm not Canadian or New England born either.

It's a really dream landscape for me... I'm living so far away from the water.

Fabulous image Karen,this horizon extends to infinity! It's so,so soothing to be by the sea.

Thanks for sharing the beauty,

Debbie said...

so very beautiful karen....we are cut from the same cloth!!

although, my husband keeps making the same comment to me over and over about living on the beach, "it's the best place to be on a good day, and the worst place to be on a bad, stormy day"! i tend to disagree!!

Icy BC said...

Nonnie said...

oh, Karen, those are the 5 reasons that I yearn to live by a lake or river, but it is highly unlikely I ever will. So I count on lovely scenes that you and other bloggers "paint" for me. thank you

YOu can wade at most times of the year - once your feet are numb it no longer matters!!

Took me a while to believe that when I moved to Oz, but it's true!

Greetings, RW & SK

W. Latane Barton said...

Beautiful sunset. I like to wade in the water, too. Very relaxing!

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

gorgeous view. i hope you don't ever have bad weather. that would be the main reason why the hubby would never allow for beach front properties. i will have to think on it in my dreams. ( :

DrillerAA09 said...

Sky and water are all you really need for a glorious image. Well done.

You and me both Karen!!! No matter the season, it's barefootin' along the shore. Besides, it's a free defoliant!!

Gorgeous sky over the water. In fact, your 5 random could be me typing it!!

Veronica Roth said...

Me too Karen. Love being close to the ocean and miss it something rotten when I'm in Oxfordshire. Happily, the Thames is just a few fields away. :)

Joyful said...

Beautiful!

Very lovely, Karen. Lake Huron is such a gorgeous lake, especially looking over it from the east side.

debra @ frugal little bungalow said...

LOVELY ! :) What a wonderful photo :)

Thistle Cove Farm said...

When you've got a great eye, you don't need to do a lot of cropping and editing...very well done!

Ida said...

Stunning sunset.
I would love to visit the ocean more often but I think living there might make it less magical if I saw it on a daily basis.
I do love wading into the waves too and hearing them as they crash on shore.

Sarah Huizenga said...

Totally agree about the water. I within a mile of Lake Michigan. I don't think I live without the water.

Terri Buster said...

Perfectly gorgeous!

Carletta said...

Beautiful!
I'm sitting here looking at fog on a murky moonlight night. Would sure love to be hearing waves crashing instead. :)

Susan W said...

Fantastic shot of the colors of the sky. Being from the prairies, the sound of the waves crashing is something I love to hear as well.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love the beautiful picture and your 5 facts; yes, you have to wade barefoot in the water to fully experience it!
