Friday Foto - Clouds to sail by; at Lake Conroe!!

Lake Conroe Sailing Association's Thursday night races

This picture was taken at one of Lake Conroe Sailing Association's Thursday night races. We will be having Thursday night races through the fall.  I help on the committee boat and my husband crews. We do have a boat but we don't use it for the Thursday night races.  As you can see it is not necessary to have a boat to participate. If you would like information about Lake Conroe Sailing Association please visit their website

Oh! It's so pretty! It makes me want run off and to go sailing for the day!

Hi Marchel. What a beautiful image of Lake Conroe. It sounds like you truly enjoy these events and it is clearly evident one doesn't need a boat ( but personal, I'd rather be on one than watching from the shore ).

What a great picture. The clouds actually look like the wind pushing against the sails. :)

Marchel: Powerful imagery. Love the fiercy white clouds and the peacful sailboat on the calm waters. Great shot! ~Rita

Looks wonderful to be on the lake.  Gordon here filling in for Cherise.  Just checking on some of her favorites on AR.  g

Oh Marchel, I want to be there!  Do you know I've never been sailing?  I think it's about time I tried it!

Marchel, this looks to be a nice peaceful day to spend out on the water.  Hope you enjoyed it.

Marchel, A beautiful day to be out on the water.  Such a contrast to some paintings I just saw on a documenatry about Winslow Homer who painted such stormy weather at sea.  I'll take your day any day!

Hi Marchel - That is a very dramatic photo, but doesn't that look like a storm coming?

Hi Marchel, Steve (#3) beat me to it. The clouds are in the lead! GREAT SHOT!!

Posted by Joni Bailey, Your Huntsville / Lake Livingston Area REALTOR® (101 Main St. Realty) over 9 years ago

Marchel, you really have some towering and ominous cloud formations by Lake Conroe, but oh, so beautiful!

Posted by Bruce Walter (Keller Williams Realty Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana) over 9 years ago

Those clouds look like the type that form here in Arizona just before a storm.  And, they usually carry a powerful punch.

Those amazing clouds with that intensely blue sky only adds to the scene of the sailboat on the water!  Gorgeous shot!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 9 years ago

Marchel, You post some of the most beautiful photos. It must be a blast to get out on Lake Conroe and sail. Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh my gosh Marchel, that is one beautiful photo!  I'm really enjoying your photos from the Lake and hope you have a great weekend.

PHYL, Sailing is so relaxing.  Now I have to be honest I don't like racing (which is why I'm on the committee boat) but I love a nice leisurly sail.

WILLIAM, There's nothing like being on the water.  We got our start in sailing there in San Diego's bay.  That was close to 20 years ago now.  Now when I come I just get to watch the boats from my friends balcony but I still love looking at them.

STEVE H, Those are some wicked looking clouds. I pondered what to call my post but even though they look wicked I couldn't bring myself to call a cloud wicked.

RITA, I love the imagery also.  I take so many pictures at these races I didn't even realize this one was there until it came up first on my Flickr.

GORDON, We love being on the water.  We lived close to a lake when we lived in Colorado but the water was just too darn cold.

ANN, You should give sailing a go.  It can be so peaceful; that is if your husband does not decide to get in to racing!

GEORGE, I love it because I'm on the committee boat taking pictures.  I don't need that Adrenalin flow that you get when you start a race. We get to watch all the havoc as the race starts in the safe confines of the committee boat.

GLORIA, These clouds did turn a bit stormy and we called the race early.

SUSAN, We called the race early for just that reason.  This time the storm did not materialize but you have to be careful when you are on the water.

JONI, The picture is almost surreal isn't it!


Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) over 9 years ago

BRUCE, I love the pictures that I get while on the water.  I got some great shots at the last race but have not had time to put anything together yet.

JULI, We cut the race early because of the clouds.  In this case they turned to nothing but better to be safe than sorry.

MYRL, Thanks!  I love cloud formations and this was a strange one.

STEVE B., It is a blast to be on Lake Conroe whether it be sailing or on the committee boat.

MARY, I took a bunch of pictures at the last race so will be adding more.

ROBERT, Thanks for the feature.  I love clouds!!

Hi Marchel, perfect picture....and what a beautiful sky!

Marchel, What a nice thing to look forward to each week.  Your picture is breathtaking.

Posted by Diane Williams over 9 years ago

Hey Marchel, great photo you have put up :) looks so peaceful

Posted by Laura Cerrano, Certified Feng Shui Expert, Speaker & Researcher (Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island) over 9 years ago

Great photo, Marchel. An evening on the lake beats an evening at home.

Posted by Jill Wente, Realtor, CRS, MCNE, CHMS (Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate | Gary Greene) over 9 years ago

REBECCA, I did not even realize I had this shot until I was uploading the pictures to Flickr.  I tend to click, click, click.

DIANE, I love taking pictures of the races.  Now I have no desire to race at ALL.

CAROLE, It is peaceful on the lake.

JILL, If you know anyone that would like to join us have them visit our website (above) it gives all the information.  You don't have to own a boat to participate.

Marchel great photos!  It looks so peaceful, and FUN.  Thanks for sharing.

I am loving the nearly parallel lines: edge of cloud, edge of sail/mast.

Marchel what an amazing picture great for long weekend

CAN YOU BELIEVE it is Labor Day weekend ! ... I can't where has this year gone ! Have a fab....u...lous weekend

Posted by ~ Dallas Real Estate Agent Top Team (Dallas Houses for Rent Dallas Apartment Rentals ) over 9 years ago

JOAN, It is fun but I'm happy to be on the committee boat and let my husband race.  Now just sailing is another story.

JIM, Thanks! It was one of those unique pictures.

LYNN, It is amazing that it is already Labor Day.  We thought about going to the lake today but decided it would be way too crowded.  My husband has a small sailboat race next weekend so we will go once the crowds are gone.

Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) over 9 years ago

Wow...breathtaking photo! Makes me want to go out on a lake sailing.
