As it was close to the supper hour, so Maryjean and I enjoyed a quiet scenic meal by the shores of Ruth Roy Lake.As we were eating a large snapping turtle showed up in front of us.MJ started feeding the turtle strawberries and grapes.Let me tell you this turtle got a good feed of fruit before he left.
By 7:00 the wind had picked up and cloud cover moved in. My thoughts now were that it would be morning before I would get to do any more photographing.Amazingly by 8:300 the wind died down and the water became calm.I shot off a number of shots for a panoramic which included the island.
Maryjean suggested that we canoe over to the point by the island and look at the shoreline by the campsite.After beaching the canoe MJ said here is a good shot.I composed the shot you see above.By adding a little of the shoreline we were standing on for depth,the island as a center point with the La Cloche Mountains in the background I created a very pleasing shot.The pinkish clouds also add to the above photo.It was now turning dark so we headed back to camp. MJ got a fire going and I heated water for a delicious cup of hot chocolate by the fire.By now the m0squitoes were making themselves known.In a short while we turned in for the night.
