Lens On The Lake was started in 1978 by Ray and Renata Janus, to photograph boating and sailing events on Lake Ontario, Canada on their first sailboat, the "Miss Behaving II". With thousands of pictures taken between 1978 and 1981, a number of awards were presented to Ray and Renata Janus for marine photography off the MB II's decks.
After launching the MB II on the Great Salt Lake, we continued our photography, contributing a number of photos to the Great Salt Lake Yacht Club (www.gslyc.org) , while participating in many club events and crewing on numerous races.
This resulted in more awards from the Great Salt Lake Yacht Club at the annual banquets, and many of these images are being digitized and will soon appear on this website.
With the commissioning of the Miss Behaving III, a Catalina 36, the MB II continues to ply the Great Salt Lake as "GodSpeed", and with the advent of digital photography, the Janus's have added to their image library.
Since moving to Arizona, and finally relocating the Miss Behaving III to Lake
Pleasant in May, 2009, we hope to continue sharing our skills and passion for
fine photography on the water.
