Froggy with Clouds

This was not photographed recently.. Actually, it was shot almost two years ago in Algonquin Park, and I'm posting it for two reasons.

The first, is that it was one of the first images I thought of in response to this week's PhotoFriday challenge (clouds). I realize the 'clouds' bit is rather trivial in this image, but I've always liked this image. Besides, I'd prefer to avoid the literal 'look, clouds!' response to the theme and rather incorporate it into a larger image. Whether that's post-rationalization or not (second-nature to architects and any designer-by-education I suppose), I'm sticking to it.

The second is that Jenn and are are heading up to the cottage in a day or so and this photo always reminds me of the cottage. This will be our first trip up this year so hopefully it's still standing — anyone who has seen Jenn's cottage will understand :).

(While the intent of this site is to force (err.. 'persuade') me to use the camera more frequently, I figure it's ok now and then to pull something out of the archives. Incidentally this marks the first time I've done that since the site began...)
