Week 2 – #34 Splash of Color

5 Comments

I was at a friend’s house a few evenings ago and my eye caught a framed picture on her wall.  Irene hails from Erie, PA, and a friend had presented it to her.  “Oh my gosh”, I said. “I took a picture of that same place!”  Then I promptly reached for my I-phone to show it to her.

As my son-in-law continued his drive along the Erie waterfront, he then drove us out to the peninsula of Presque Isle.  This state park is beautiful, even with gray skies.  As you start the drive on the frozen bay side, you are able to view Erie’s skyline,  migrating birds on the water, numerous “blinds” for hunters, a few ice fishermen, and numerous trails.  We continued on and reached the lake side where waves were crashing.  I asked to stop the car so I could get a few photos of Lake Erie and my grandson Ethan joined me.  I didn’t linger as I took a few quick photos.  While walking back to the car I commented on how unexpectedly cold it was and Ethan told me it was the “lake effect”.  I asked what that meant and he said “I don’t know.”  He’s only 5 and new to the area, but he’s already been hearing “lake effect” quite a bit!

I saw a splash of color,  which was quite a contrast to the dark trees and white snow, and quickly took pictures of the Presque Isle Lighthouse, shown here,  as we drove by.

  1. An interesting setting for a light house. At first glance I thought it was a farm! Love the splash of red.

  2. Cool shot but too cold for this FL girl!

  3. Lovely splash of red. It still looks cold.
