Sunset on Black Lake

Black Lake is near Perth in Eastern Ontario, about 1 hour from Ottawa. A group of fellow swimmers went for a late-in-the-year lake swim on October 20th, 2011. Fortunately it has been a long autumn and the water temperature was cold but forgiving. Not only that, it was a beautifully warm day above the surface so climbing out dripping wet was not the ordeal it might have been.

Later in the evening as we settled indoors for a meal and a beverage I had to dash back outside with my camera and tripod so as not to miss the magnificent sunset that was unfolding.

Bruce Amos, Murray McComb and myself have been having an evening out once a month for the past 18-24 months (I’ve lost track of time). We meet  over a couple of cold ones and a plate of wings, checking out various establishments in the city and discussing whatever photographic and other subjects come to mind. Our April 22nd, 2010 meeting coincided with an Ottawa Senators playoff game and even if we’d tried to find a place in a pub, the atmosphere would not have been conducive to talking photography. So instead we decided to record the game for ourselves and have an evening photo outing at the arboretum, part of the Central Experimental Farm of Agriculture Canada located not far from city centre . Despite our months of talking cameras and pixels, this was only the second time we’d all three had cameras out at the same time and place.

Here is a selection of the shots we took that evening. Alphabetical order will help me out here, plus one of Bruce’s is shown above already:
