Photographer's Note

Lake Ontario bounded on the north by Ontario and on the south by Ontario's Niagara Peninsula and by New York State, is one of the five Great Lakes of North America.

The name of the lake is derived from Skanadario, an Iroquois word meaning either "beautiful lake" or "sparkling water". The Canadian province of Ontario was later named after the lake.

Lake Ontario is the smallest in surface area of the Great Lakes and the 14th largest lake in the world.
