Late Autumn

As the season winds down, warmth and calm arrive for short periods.

Next come the storms.

More Autumn Photographs

There is the occasional snowflake in the air this morning but thoughts of the season that is just ending are still in my mind.

More Autumn Colour

So much colour that one gets a bit tired of it.

Until one sees more.

Then it’s impossible to ignore.

Migration

The birds know Winter is coming.

Sandhill Cranes make the trip to the warmer South in stages, pausing along the way to rest and glean the fields for food.

The opportunity to watch them and make photographs presents itself annually.

We are fortunate to be on the flyway and the presence of large farms in our area provides the resting spots.

A Visit To Laurier Woods

Laurier Woods is an area of bush and beaver ponds in our town. It is easily accessible and provides a “wilderness” experience on the edge of our metropolis. It is family friendly, small enough that getting lost is not an issue. With well maintained trails, even those in wheelchairs can experience at least some of the fun it has to offer.

Summer Colour

The colours of Summer are magnified by bright days and a visit to a garden.

When you get lucky the birds contribute as well.

Duchesnay Falls Revealed

Normally Duchesnay Falls covers her secrets with lots and lots of water.

In late Summer the water flow is often quite low and one can go places where it would be quite dangerous to attempt during most of the year.

The mystery of what causes the big waves and sprays of water is revealed when the water is low.

It is quite the novelty to stand in places that often are quite inhospitable.
