Cold Frontal Westerlies

The cold front and heavy rain had passed through overnight. The strong winds and turbulent stratocumulus clouds dominated the weather. The winds helped to keep the hungry deer flies at bay. The biting bugs have been especially ferocious this summer. This view is looking northwesterly across the points into the east basin of Singleton Lake.
Robert Hedden and the Plein Air Painters Thousand Islands Region (PAPTIR) came to Singleton Lake to paint. This was their Third Annual Paintout here at the lake. We had about 8 artists with a pot luck lunch. What could be better. There were a lot of snakes but no one was too frightened as the slithered around the easels. That was a gray rat snake at my feet in the last photo.
