County Road 36 Touring 02

Continuing with some more images that I made while traveling North on County Road 36 from Westport Ontario to Maberly, these particular photographs speak to me. They do something to my soul. Not sure if it’s the way the tree trunks are half covered in light and half fall into shadow, or just the sheer…

County Road 36 Touring 01

I’ve made it one of my goals in moving out to Eastern Ontario to try and explore as much of the landscape that surrounds me as possible. It’s something I never really did living back in the Greater Toronto Area and I feel like it was a lost opportunity. As a photographer, and a creative artist, it’s my job…

Swans of Loon Lake 03

This is it. This is the one. After many (unsuccessful) attempts at documenting the “bird conference” that the swans were attending on Loon Lake every day this past winter, I finally made some photographs I’m happy with. It was a brisk, misty morning and there were about 25 swans clumped…

Gumdrop Tree

As I continue to work my way through my archives of blog posts I didn’t get to post during the winter (don’t hate), more and more wintery scenes are popping up. Here in Eastern Ontario, it has finally changed to Spring. As I look out my window today, the birds are playing and singing delightfully…

Inspiration at Eleven 44

Bedford Mills First Snow

And just like that, everything was covered in a blanket of white. It’s amazing how it seems like a switch was flipped and we go from the beautiful Autumn that colours our trees and the ground to the bright white of an empty canvas again. I’ll always be amazed with all four seasons…

Views from my Road 02

Continuing with the theme “Views from my Road,” here are a few more images I created last Fall of the streams and lakes that surround where I live. To me they look so painterly when the leaves start to change colours and the long grass is reaching as high as it can to touch the sky. It’s…

Loon Lake Sunrise 02

The end of Loon Lake that our property is on offers a beautiful perspective for Sunrises. When the lake is calm and the clouds wisp through the sky, there is nothing more peaceful than watching the sun rise over the horizon. The only problem? I’m not a morning person. Lifting my head from my pillow…
