The Sunset in North Bay (Lake Nipissing)

by Art Bee September. 06, 2010 8140 views

On vacation in the “Great White North” I took a few shots of the sunset from the motel.

North Bay Ontario Canada

Unlike most lakes in Ontario, Lake Nipissing contains two volcanic pipes, which are the Manitou Islands and Callander Bay. The volcanic pipes formed by the violent, supersonic eruption of deep-origin volcanoes. Lake Nipissing lies in the Ottawa-Bonnechere Graben, a Mesozoic rift valley that formed 175 million years ago.

Lake Nipissing at sunset…….

Lake Nipissing (French: lac Nipissing) is a lake in the Canadian province of Ontario.Lake Nipissing is the fifth-largest lake in Ontario excluding the Great Lakes…..

The shallowness of the lake makes for many sandbars along the lake's irregular coastline. The lake has many islands……

The largest population centre on the lake's shoreline is the city of North Bay. North Bay sits along the lake's northeastern shoreline. Other notable towns are Callander (south of North Bay along Highway 11). The larger towns toward the western end of the lake are Sturgeon Falls, Garden Village, Cache Bay and Lavigne…..

The lake's name means “big water” in the Algonquin language. The name Nipissing was also given to many places in the area, notably the Township of Nipissing, Nipissing District, and Nipissing University.
Lake Nipissing drains into Georgian Bay, which is a part of Lake Huron, via the French River. Lake Nipissing lies about 25 km (16 mi) northwest of Algonquin Provincial Park.
