Duchesnay Creek drops over the escarpment north of our town on its way to Lake Nipissing.
Over many years and many visits, it has provided multiple opportunities to preserve in photographs and memory the uniqueness that is our part of the world.
No two encounters are ever the same.
Moving water, rocks, blue sky and sun combine.
Can you hear the sound?
The Wasi River drops over the rocks in its last half mile rush before it enters Lake Nipissing.
Winter weather is supposed to begin moderating near the end of February and early March, but there is no sign that this is happening this year. Today’s high was -16C. Tonight’s low is forecast at -30C.
To keep hope alive, I’m publishing a photograph I made last summer just to help me stay warm.
I feel better already!

Just below Eau Claire Gorge.
Duchesnay Falls is one of the most photographed places in my town. I have visited many times but have always found that I have difficulty photographing it. What I produce is usually disappointing to me in expressing the experience. (The fault is mine, not the Falls.)
This photograph comes closer to what I want to share.
A change in the processing in Photoshop has made the difference in how the photograph appears.
