Skating Away …

The sun was quickly descending and I was looking for something to shoot when I stumbled across this picturesque Canadian scene. The great hockey legends like Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe or Wayne Gretzky etc.. all grew up playing shinny on backyard rinks, frozen ponds and lakes like this.  And it is interesting to note that many of the NHL’s stars have cottages only a few minutes from here. The rink is carved out of Lake Rosseau at the old Wallace Marina in Muskoka.

    That is a fabulous shot, Ed. Well done.

    Love the shot…brings back memories of skating on the lake as a child!! We don’t see it much around here anymore!


  3. How did you just “stumble” across this Perfect scene? I stumble all the time and don’t see anything this good. The sky – the hockey players – the Muskoka chairs – the beautiful candy-coated colours – this is SO nice. You should do a calendar or something. At the very least, I’d produce a limited number of signed copies of this photo and sell them at the tourist joints. Hey, I’d buy one and I never buy photos!

    This is a wonderful photo Ed! I love how the Muskoka chairs all have their backs to the lake and are facing the firepit awaiting warmer temperatures just like me!

    What an amazing photo! I love the colours in the sky and the different coloured chairs. The NHL could use this to advertise the Winter Classic!

    I simply adore this one.I just set this photo as my background. Why didn’t I think of that before? I’m going to do the same with several of these photo’s,switching off every week or so. Brilliant!!

  7. This is a fantastic photo! Classic Muskoka winter fun. I was wondering if you would allow me to use this for a background on 365 things to do in Muskoka. It’s not a business page, just something I do for fun.
