Sunset on the first day of Fall

Not only is Autumn the season for beautiful colors as the leaves change from green to red, orange, and gold, but it is also a time for colors in the sky.

I am not sure if it is because of where the sun now sets over the lake or if another reason but some of my best pictures are of sunsets in the fall.   I cannot help it. Every night is different and just incredible colors.   Please do not tire of me sharing sunsets pictures.

The other night, we got home from dinner around 730 and the sky was perfect.   I took 2 pictures. This one is real.   What I mean to say is that this is what the sky really looked like. I did not use any filters or enhancements.

This one is the same e moment but using a sunset filter. I think ithe is still pretty enough to share but I prefer the real thing.

More sunset pictures to come.

First of fall 2017 pictures

Warm days and cool evening, autumn is here and our colors are beginning to show.    I know this is one of my favorite seasons as the foliage comes to life with all the colors of orange, and gold, and red.    Here are a few from this weekend.

My favorite photography scene is Moose Point Tavern.

The reflections of Hog Island on the lake.

OK no foliage here but this is Sally Mountain/Sally Mountain.   A perfect reflection on the water with just a touch of fog along the shore.

As the season progresses, I hope to share more foliage pictures with you.  Or check out our facebook page also, as many go there too.  See you soon.

Kayak at sunset

It seems we have an Indian summer going on this weekend.  The days are clear with blue skies and sunny.  The temperatures are hitting almost 90 in the sun but our evenings are dropping into the 50s.

As always, the sunsets have been incredible on Big Wood.   This weekend, with the clear skies, just before it sets, it has cast an orange glow right over Hog Island on the waters.   We captured Sean taking an evening kayak ride.

 

 

Natural beauty

The end of summer is upon us and yet still, so much natural beauty surrounding us.  The only way to really do this is to hike the trails, ride the back woods or just open your eyes.

One of our guests found cold stream falls on their hike.   Cool clear waters and simple serenity.  A beautiful site!

Big Wood Lake

I am not sure why but the sunsets this week have been incredible.   Personally, I think it is related to the solar eclipse coming soon.

I, as well as many guests here at Cozy Cove Cabins and in town, have captured the most amazing skies and sunsets over Big wood this month.

This one I took from a “secret place”.  Friends took us out for an evening ATV ride and from this point, we could see all of Big Wood Lake, something I had never seen.    It was awesome.

Family Reunion 2017

What a great day by the water today.   This is a webcam shot of a family reunion, I think 4 generations out there.  Sunbathing, tubing, boating, fishing….what a day!

When the group first arrived a few days ago, Russ moved the picnic table seen in the foreground.  I had to remind him that he was in direct line with the webcam, so no funny business on the table.  I hope he knew what I meant.

SO just good to see a family enjoying each other and all that Jackman has to offer.

2017 Hunting Season

Attention hunters!    I believe this may be a good year for all.

Our guests this summer are seeing more deer, bear and grouse then reported past summers.  A few have told us the Partridge were everywhere!  And Bears,   mamma, babes as well as one quite large one seen just the other day.And a few bucks reported also, which is not often seen so easily.   I think they usually hide behind their women!

They are seeing them out on the ATV trails, hiking and of course, the favorite pastime, just driving around.

Then there are always the Moose, but only if you were lucky to win the lottery.

So make your reservations soon for hunting season 2017.

 

Clouds

When the sun is out, I, as most people, where our sunglasses.  Do you ever notice how beautiful the sky and clouds look through polarized glasses?    Then you take the picture, and it is just not the same.  The clouds are not as white or sky not as blue.   You all know what I mean.

And yes, I could have gone up and attached a polarized filter to my lens but I took the chance to see what my camera would do.    It came out almost as I could see it. Crystal clear blue skies and many white puffy clouds.    What a day!

4th of July fun 2017

As it happens every year, Celie and Kevin participated in the 4th of July parade for Cozy Cove Cabins.   This year, it was Fred and Wilma Flintstone in their Flintstonemobile!    FUN FUN.   They won “Most Outrageous”

Then, after the parade, many of our guests headed down to the shore and had an old fashioned potluck picnic.

Good food, laughs, and the making of many new friends.

After, many of us went up to the town field for the incredible fireworks.  Excellent display!
