wow - what a treat waking up of a morning and walking the verandah; sitting in the sun looking out to that view with a coffee in hand ..or other. Sitting there of an evening with a wine and watching the sun go down...would it be on an anchored floating pontoon. Doesn't seem much room for tidal rise if not. Beautiful scenery!

Carole M. said...

ah! I just note there's no windows; maybe it's a wonderful boat-shed?!

Linda said...

I was thinking the same thing...what happens if the water rises??? Great shots though - love the B&W! It does look like there might be floats underneath that building - boat house was a good guess!

Pam said...

Gorgeous shot, Brian. Love the dramatic look of black and white.
The lake house sits mighty low.. but it great for soaking tired feet.
cheers

These are great in black and white. That little cabin is on the lake isn't it? :)

Marc Heath said...

Great shots, love the black and white, something i should maybe have a go at.

Love the shots Brian and the B&W is awesome in these pics. I'd be scared to sleep in that old cabin/house/boathouse or whatever it is, it looks like it's going to float on down the river!

Cheers.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Beautiful black and white photos, Brian! I should try some of mine in black and white.

Liz said...

All beautiful shots Brian!! That first one is wonderful.

Leenie said...

I think the true test of visual stuff is taking out the color. If they can stand up with plenty of contrast and shades of gray you've nailed it. These photos are over-the-top cool.

They are some stunning shots Brian. Crystal clear and perfectly composed

Ansel Adams lives on in blog land.

Deb said...

A great series of photos. All so different, and all so good. Nice work.

There is just something about black and white that really makes time stand still in these shots. Well done!

Daniel LaFrance said...

I imagine that the cottage is floating on the waters surface and responds accordingly when the water level change.

Good b/w photo!

Genie said...

Three different shots in the series, but each is beautiful in its own right. The first one had to be my favorite. How I would love to own that. I would never need to go into the city,genie

Gillian Olson said...

Wonderful shots, and the name Lakeside holds a special meaning for me because when I was a child we had a cabin on a lake the we named Lakeside.

Robert Nicolaescu said...

Great series! Best wishes!

Nancy said...

Very pretty and wonderfully crisp. :)

Betty Roan said...

I'm always surprised by how wonderful black & white photos are. I think it stems from the days of black & white TV. It was so nice to see things in color I never looked back. But now I'm enjoying B&W again. These are all amazing. Love the houseboat. Would love to live there as long as the water stays calm.

John said...

Really like the clouds in the bottom shot.

Wonderful lakeside shots! What a beautiful place!
Have a nice day:)
