Fishing Tuesday




This photo was taken at a lake somewhere between North Bay and Kirkland Lake in northern Ontario. For those who take a week off every year to relax, kick back and drop the line into the water...

I love that photo. It's perfect.

I wouldn't be fishing, Barbara, but I'd love to spend a week around that lovely lake with my feet on the side of the boat, reading.

Barbara Martin said...

Pam, it sets the mood to relax after many months at the corporate grind.

Raph, or sitting on a reclining chair on a porch listening to the loons and geese on the water, and sipping on a cold beer.

Teresa said...

I just love this picture. It makes me feel like I'm out on the lake, and I too would be reading, not fishing... (but no beer).

David Cranmer said...

No rest for the wicked in my world. But it's tempting.

debra said...

I love love love that photo and the feeling it emits.

Michele said...

Sitting in a rocker or Adirondack chair on a porch would be more to my liking, too. But sipping iced tea. :)

It's relaxing just to look at this photo!

That's a great photo!

What a perfect snap! I loved the boots detail and the lake stretching into the distance, almost like spilling over one's imagination, trying to reach into the unknown. And the lake looks so placid and quiet. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

No need to fish with that lovely view to look at (I don't mean the feet by the way). I was in Toronto only three weeks ago - lovely city.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Call again.

L.A. Mitchell said...

Very peaceful, though mine would have a book, not a pole :)

Maria said...

Great picture, wonderful scenery! I'd love to be there too :)

Charles Gramlich said...

I'd probably have a book propped up on my lap.

Reader Wil said...

What a wonderful way to relax! Good on you that you have done some cycling around now.

Margaret Cloud said...

This picture reminds me of my son when he was youn and liked to fish all the time. Very nice photo and thank you for coming by, have a nice week.

Reya Mellicker said...

I don't know how to fish but the pic makes me want to learn ... or at least go sit next to someone who's fishing on this beautiful lake!

Boy, that looks great.

Historical Writer/Editor said...

I love the feeling I get looking at that picture. So relaxing...

Cloudia said...

AH!
Ah-loha ;-)

You are invited to a virtual tribute at my blog tomorrow, Barbara (if you have the time)

Barbara Martin said...

Teresa, beer is for sitting on a porch and not going anywhere afterwards: certainly not on a boat in water.

David, you can always dream.

Debra, same feeling it gave me when I spied it.

Barbara Martin said...

Michele, a blissful time in any case.

Pamela, it is indeed.

Bindu, I thought it fit the ideal fisherman's first lazy day away from the corporate world.

Cuban, it will remain quiet providing local moose don't decide to go for water plant munching.

Tony, one is enough for me at any given time.

Barbara Martin said...

Weaver, there are thousands of places in northern Ontario that are as beautiful as this place.

L.A., a nice piece of pan fried trout is quite tasty for dinner.

Maria, thank you kindly.

Charles, there are likely well sized fish in this lake.

RuneE said...

That's the way to do it: "Gone fishin' - with a camera".

J. L. Krueger said...

I'm looking forward to such serene activity (or inactivity) again...maybe next year. ;)

Travis Erwin said...

Love it.
