This photo, from my recent vacation in Prince Edward County, is a tribute to Alex Coleville. At least that’s what I’m calling it. Something about the way the light is wrapping around Michael with the patio doors out onto the lake in the background seems reminiscent of a Coleville to me.
I think Coleville would have enjoyed the place we stayed – Lake on the Mountain Resort – with it’s modest cabins by the lake, changeable weather, varied and grand views, rolling highway and mysterious lake.
I’m not sure, however, what he would think of Birdhouse City.
I was also made happy by the distillery, cidery, honey farm and many vineyards we visited. This, above, is the County Cider Company’s vineyard looking out over Lake Ontario.
This is one of the many gazebos at Lake on the Mountain, which is also a brewery as well as a lovely place to stay. There is definitely something “old world” about the landscape in Prince Edward County, especially on the Picton side.
[This isn’t an HDR photo, by the way. In fact this is unaltered except converted from RAW to jpeg. The light this evening was incredible.]
I don’t get many vacations so time like this is very precious. This was a beautiful part of the world to spend my few “idle” days off.
