Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

night lake water

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is Refraction.

The instructions said:  For this photo challenge, show us what “refraction” means to you. It could be an image taken in a reflective surface, it could be light bent from behind an object, or it could mean remedial math homework.

So can you tell what this is?

Some of you might recognize it from this post.

I thought this photo pretty much embodied refraction of light in reflection and the way it is ‘bent’ in the ripples of water behind our boat from the sunset on the lake.

And even if it doesn’t, I kinda like this photo, and it brings back memories of this lovely evening.  🙂

Cheers & Hugs,


A Fall Sunset Cruise


It was an absolutely AMAZING Fall Weekend here in Western Pennsylvania.  Who couldn’t love Fall with this kind of weather!?!

The crisp mornings were perfect for brisk early walks and baking yummy apple treats (like yesterday’s Apple Dumplings).

The days warmed up with bright sunshine and deep azure skies sprinkled with cottony clouds.

And the evenings – oh so extraordinary – cooled to perfect weather for a picturesque sunset cruise.

Now granted – a sunset cruise around these parts is in a Bass Tracker with Captain Marty and First Mate Mikey on Lake Arther, but check out the amazing beauty from our little piece of the world.
