Kettle Lakes Provincial Park, Ontario - Kettle Point, in Ontario, protruding into Lake Huron. I was shooting a bit into the sun here. You can see the old shoelines inland from the lake. They look like white lines in the woods parallel to the shore. The land is rising and the lake is shrinking, due to elastic rebound of the land, which no longer bears the weight of the glacier, which departed at the end of the last ice age, about 10,000 years ago, which is essentially in the geologic present. Lake Huron, like most of the lakes and ponds in the flatlands of the North American interior, are puddles left by the melted glacier.
