"Oh, What a Heavenly Light"

I went out for a ride Sunday evening and here's what I saw...

Dude, couldn't you have just said it with a card or something?  Compose a sonnet?

Canandaigua Lake winds its way south beneath several layers of scattered clouds.

Rain was pelting my windscreen while I took this picture of clouds over the southern end of Canandaigua Lake.

I must be spending too much time around two year olds.  This picture makes me think, "the wheels on the bus go round and round..."

As I beheld this scene, the quote "oh, what a heavenly light" came to mind.  Along with it came the theme music from "The Right Stuff", which remained stuck in my head for the remainder of the flight. 

Gorgeous. Views like this are why I'm thankful for my avocation.

As the world shone as though under an ethereal spotlight, it was time for me to return home. 


  1. I want to see this heart lake!

    1. I wish I knew exactly where it was...I spotted it while droning low and slow over farm country southeast of Rochester and have never seen it since. Maybe I imagined it? :-)
