Moffat’s Path

The footpath leads back into the bush near where I live.

It provides opportunity to escape the outside world and find a place disconnected from the artificial rules imposed by humans on the ways we perceive and experience reality.

Time spent here is valuable and will never leave you.

Near Sweetman’s Garden

The old CNR railway roadbed ran beside Sweetman’s Garden and was the reason that the garden came into existence. The right-of-way was much wider than required for the tracks and Murray Sweetman began to use the vacant land beside the tracks as a garden. Over the years the garden became quite extensive and was a place to marvel at and escape from the neighbourhood for a bit of “quiet time”. An oasis of calm.

The rails were removed years ago and despite unsuccessful attempts on the part of the City’s Mayor and Council to sell the land for development, it is still there today. Perhaps not as glorious as it once was, but still an oasis of calm nonetheless.

Before the Snow

It seems like a very long time ago that the paths of the Cove were accessible without snowshoes.

It was indeed only three months past.

Winter Walk

Near our place is a path through the forest.

Snowy Path

Spending a few minutes in awe of the delicate nature of the bush makes the day worthwhile.

Winter Bush

The bush near our place is a very pleasant place to be these days.

Quiet, tranquil and cold enough to make one aware.

Red Pines In Black and White

Walked in the Black Forest yesterday.  It is a small area beside the North highway and often forgotten.  It was reforested some time ago with red and white pines.

A new lens (17-40 zoom) allows a different perspective from what I have been using up to now.  Colours are muted at this time of year so this one looks a bit better in black and white.

Moffat’s Path Spring Morning

About a week ago it rained all night and got warm in the morning.  Very humid but cold near the ground.

The fog made it interesting.

This was made using three exposures (-1,0,+1) and then combining them using the HDR function in CS5 Photoshop.

Favourite Place

Near our house is Moffat’s Path.  I have many photographs of this place and one of my favourites is this little spot, which I have photographed many times in different conditions and seasons.  This is the way it looked yesterday morning.

Very tranquil and quiet.  Good for the soul.
