Am I Seeing Double?

Reflection photos that will blow you away!

A nice calm day + Sunset Country = a fantastic photo op.

One thing for sure is that everyone loves a good sunset photo. A reflection photo though rivals the all-and-mighty sunset photo. With the amount of shoreline in Ontario's Sunset Country, your chance of seeing a beautiful reflection of the Canadian Shield and Boreal forest is guaranteed.

The following photos are a collection of the best reflection photos in Northwest Ontario that were posted on Facebook this summer.

"The Rock" at Crow Rock Lodge

One of the most talked about posts on the Sunset Country Facebook page this summer was this photo of "the Rock" across from Crow Rock Lodge. What do you see when you look at the photo? Now turn it sideways and look again. You can see many different items from different angles. We heard everything from a cat to a boat to a man lying down to even a helicopter.

Dryberry Lake on a calm day

With the water-like glass, this picture of Dryberry Lake could really be turned upside down and you wouldn't know it. This shoreline is typical of many lakes in Northwest Ontario.

Rainbow over Douglas Lake

Viking Outposts posted this stunning photo of a rainbow over Douglas Lake near Red Lake, Ontario. I'm thinking that the anglers would likely be lucky in that spot!

Sunset in Balmertown (Red Lake)

Chantal Labonte captured this reflection of a sunset in Balmertown on July 21, 2014. The yellow streak really adds a uniqueness to the photo.

Reflection at the Red Lake Golf Course

On a calm night, this would be your view of the Red Lake Golf & Country Club on McNeely Bay. This is Ontario's most northerly 18-hole golf course.

Reflection on Kashabowie Lake

I'm not sure how I missed this incredible photo that was posted to Sunset Country's wall by Leslie Krieger in July. As I was going through our posts to write this article, I found this great reflection on Kashabowie Lake west of Thunder Bay.

Sunsets often give off a great reflection in the water below and this photo is no exception. Even the sun's rays are captured in the reflection.
