Binnacle Island

An island in the St. Lawrence River, just big enough for a large house and a few treesThis week’s Lens Artist challenge encourages us to explore the boundary between land and water at the sea or a lake. I’m stretching that just a bit with this image of Binnacle Island, because it’s in the Thousand Islands region of the St. Lawrence River, between the US and Canada. Not quite the sea or a lake, but a significant bit of water in any case! This small island is owned and maintained by the US Power and Sail Squadron as a place members can reserve for visits to enjoy the water. I got to go there for a lovely afternoon. Here are a couple of other photos from that day. Enjoy!
