Mother Works Slowly

She has many tools.

She is unrelenting in Her progress.

Along the way to the inevitable result there is much beauty.

Subtle Autumn

There are a few small clues here that Autumn has begun.

Protected by the surrounding forest, the ferns around this decaying log are still rich green.

Processes happen slowly in this part of the forest, but they are inexorable in their progress.

The log will in time be reduced to its elements and return to the soil which gave it life.

Nipissing Afternoon

Occasionally Lake Nipissing is calm and tranquil.

One day last week, it was.

Summer Extension

Generally in this part of the world, the door to Summer is considered to close on Labour Day Weekend.

Occasionally Mother Nature forgets and leaves it wide open for another week or so.

When that happens, gloriously calm and luxurious afternoons occur.

The illusion that this will continue forever is strong, despite the certain knowledge that it can’t come true.

Lake Nipissing shows itself at its best during these special times.

It’s A Wetland Not A Swamp

Good for the soul,

Not useless.

To be preserved,

Not filled in.

Spring In The Wetland

Land with water in it used to be call “swamp”. When I was growing up, a swamp had little value.

Over the years, education has changed the minds of many and along with the change in thinking, the term “wetland” has replaced the word “swamp”.

The values of wetland are still being established in the consciousness of society, particularly those members whose minds are ruled by the economy.

Here are two sights with great visual and emotional value that wetlands provide.

I Got Rhythm

Hostas are the most rhythmic of plants.

Colour or Monochrome.

Doesn’t seem to matter.

August Evening

Just after sunset on an August Summer evening.

All is calm after a long hot day.

Readying for the night.

Summer Memories

We are blessed here to have calm water to create memories with.

The North Bay Canoe Club has many programs for kids.

Time spent on the water is a wonderful investment in the futures of these young people.
