Still a place which brings quiet to my soul and excitement to my mind. Were it not for the energy and caring of many people, this place would be lost to the Philistines.
Fortunately for all of us it is not filled with houses.
These are recent photos made near Huntsville, ON. There has been a lot of rain and many unsettled days with lots of different lighting conditions.
A wonderful mix of opportunities for encountering moods and unique light.
The delicate blue of the Forget-Me-Nots is all part of the beauty of Spring.
It’s early days and the Waterfront Gardens are not very active. The cold and snowy start to the month of May has slowed growth significantly.
Nonetheless, several hardy plants were active yesterday in the midst of flying snowflakes.
These photographs were published elsewhere over the past couple of weeks.
The La Vase Portage Conservation Area is a neat place to visit. The trail passes beaver ponds while winding through mixed woodland and includes a nice stand of mature birch trees.
The snow is mostly gone, the ice is off the ponds.
Yesterday, this pond was waiting for the warmth of spring.
A week from now the greens will be well established and the activities of nature will have resumed.
For now, quiet and calm reign.
The rumble of the falls and rapids at Duchesnay is hard to ignore.
The is also great opportunity to look for quieter spots along the side of the torrent and experience some neat stuff.
The land through which the water runs adds to the whole experience.
Can you hear the rumble of the Falls?
Near my town is the place that Duchesnay Creek chooses to descend the escarpment, tumbling down ledges and through cracks and crevasses in the rock of the Pre-Cambrian Shield.
When the melt comes, there is ample water flowing.
