Canandaigua Lake Skies #SkywatchFriday

I am hoping that my Florida readers and friends are all safe after Hurricane Ian.  Ian was a reminder of the power of Nature, and how destructive it can be.  

Meanwhile, my area is under a frost advisory.

My post today isn't as exciting but I hope you enjoy it.

The last couple of times we have visited Canandaigua, New York (situated on one of New York's Finger Lakes). we haven't enjoyed sunsets along Canandaigua Lake   The weather hasn't been favorable.  But I sometimes forget that there are other reasons to take pictures of a lake.

Saturday, after attending the Naples, New York grape festival, we decided to recover from the massive crowds and chill back in Canandaigua.  We purchased a turkey sub sandwich (others call them hoagies, or heroes) at a deli we like, and took it to a bench to eat.

It had been a lovely day up to then, but clouds were rapidly encroaching.

I decided to take some pictures.
You could see the bottom of the lake (bottom of photo) and a couple of stand up paddleboarders.

The reflections were starting to get interesting.

We took a walk to a nearby marina.

There are some historic boathouses on the lake; I don't know if these were those boathouses but I liked the contrast between water and sky.

One more reflection shot.

  1. ...the boat houses are a funky addition to the lake.

  2. It's wonderful how clear the water is there. I never made it to the Finger Lakes and regret that.

  3. Beautiful pictures of some scenic and peaceful scenes.

  4. Two ends of the spectrum, from a hectic festival to such a serene setting. Great way to enjoy a few days.

  5. These photos are gorgeous. The sky always has a story to tell.

  6. You really captured some beautiful reflections off the water!

  7. The boat houses left a wonderful reflection in the water. Skies are beautiful. We had frost yesterday in the Mid-West.

  8. These are some great photographs. I love the clear blue water, the skies, and the reflections you got.
    I've only been to the northeast a few times and I love the grinders!! We have nothing like it in Oklahoma.

  9. Beautiful sky shot from a lovely place ~ Xo

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

  11. Ahhhh! the perfect place to take your turkey sub and simply...BE! Gorgeous pictures! I especially like the one with the boats!

  12. Very pretty. I love pictures on the water.

  13. Nice skies. Hope you are not affected by the hurricane.
