Johnston Creek in Banff National Park.
The Johnston Canyon trail follows the creek up to a waterfall. Easy walking and quite busy.
Hot, sunny, water, what more could a pair of horses want? On the Similkimeen River in British Columbia.
Rapids on the Amable du Fond River below the gorge.
I made this shot last week. This past weekend turned warm and it is raining this morning. The snow is gone.
Now, only this memory exists.
But then thats what photographs are, aren’t they?
Just below Eau Claire Gorge.
I visited Eau Claire Gorge yesterday and paused on the bridge which crosses the Amable du Fond River.
The heron was not disturbed by my presence or by the occasional car crossing.
It was just enjoying the fall colours, I guess.
The early run-off was slowed a day ago by more “normal” temperatures for this time of year. The water flow is a bit less frantic.
Now it feels more like spring than the summer of last week.
The Grand River in Galt from the Concession Street Bridge.
The Scottish heritage of Galt is marked by the steeples of two Presbyterian churches, Knox on the left and Central on the right. The buildings are kitty corner from each other across a small park.
The Wasi River flows near my town.
Spring has arrived there too.
The leaves are almost gone from the trees beside the Wasi River.
The scene was different one month ago.
This is the mouth of the Lavase River, where it enters Lake Nipissing. For 150 years The Voyageurs paddled through this channel in the spring, on their way west to Thunder Bay on Lake Superior. The return voyage passed this point and ended up in Montreal in the Autumn. Lake Nipissing is controlled by dams on the French River these days, and there are navigation markers in place. However the place is pretty much the same as it would have been 150 years ago.
In the spring the water would be much higher than it is in this photograph, but by fall it would probably have been as you see it here.
The river meanders beside Lake Nosbonsing Road for a short distance, giving glimpses of itself in and out of the trees. A quiet grey morning in late August provided a tranquil scene.
A short distance downstream it tumbles through a series of rapids into Callandar Bay.
