Good morning everybody:

On behalf the executive of the Bass Lake Association, we would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.  The past 18-months have been trying for most of us and this is a time to take pause and be thankful for family, friends, and health.  In addition, it is an opportunity to realize how blessed and fortunate we are to have Bass Lake in our lives.

The colour should be peaking soon, so you will want to take advantage of the amazing weather coming next week and check it out.

The judges had this to say about the photos…

  • Action:  Barefoot Faceplant by Meg Nietsch

  • Our Bass Lake community are a rare group who can gather, without judgement, in our PJ’s, to discuss septic issues, DIY projects, and throw cocktail parties.  It’s a place to grow and reflect on how to tackle many projects and circumstances in the name of a good time.  One of our challenges is to indoctrinate our children to bequeath these challenges. Barefoot Face Plant is a first class example which reflects the pains and rewards of learning new skills, increasing confidence and eventually passing the torch to the ​​next generation.   Wait until we teach them how the septic works!

 

  • Landscapes and Nature: Bass Lake Morning by Chris Bodanis

  • The photo illustrates the tranquility of the early morning on Bass Lake.  Looking at it, you know you never want to leave.

 

  • Wildlife: Chicka-dee-dee-dee by Enid Wray

  • One thing I really appreciate about being on Bass Lake is the abundance of wildlife. What I really like about this photo is it shows one of our winter friends. Every season is special on Bass Lake.

 

  • Winter: Early Snow by Evie Simon

  • A quintessential northern Ontario scene - a serene tree lined lake reflecting almost perfectly the trees that hug the shoreline.  The use of black and white brings out the contrast of the snow against the landscape of this gorgeous lake.

 

  • Children and Youth: The Old Man in the Sea by Alex Hogan

  • By acclamation

 

  • Grand Prize Winner: Cousins! 4th Generation on Bass Lake by Bo Karantjas

  • Family brings life to the lake!

  • Cottage memories are made by the cousins. Fun memories that will never be lost. 

  • We bought our cottage as a gathering place for our present and future family. This photo captures the treasure of family.

  • Happy children, what Bass Lake has meant to many families throughout the years.  The composition of the shot with the beautiful sky appearing to almost reflect the colour of the matching swimsuits is remarkable.    


 

BASS LAKE EXCHANGE

Have anything that has gone missing this summer?  

There has been lots of traffic in ‘Lost and Found’ items on the Bass Lake Exchange this year… and there are a number of items still parked on the Exchange.
