Napanee Rapeseed Fields

I’ve always been enamoured by the bright and beautiful yellow fields that pop up during the summer months in Ontario. Until recently, I had no idea what type of flower or crop it was that created this picturesque scenery (It’s called “Rapeseed” and it’s typically used in the production of Canola Oil) but I…

Sparks Street Ribfest

I like ribs! There I said it. Got that off my chest. Whew! Living with a wife who doesn’t eat red meat or pork and a son who has a typical kid’s bland carb-based diet can be tough when you enjoy meat as much as I do. I try to barbecue at home as much as possible because at least that way I can make sure…

Weird Fuzzy Moth

When you live in the country, there are just some insects/animals that you have to document. You spot them out of the corner of your eye, usually bolting across your lawn or buried in some treed area. In any case, this little ok big guy was attached to our pantry window! I’m not sure what kind of moth this is…

The Road to Perth

The road to Perth is a wonderfully scenic drive winding through streams, ponds, fields and trees, complete with just about every known piece of vegetation and wildlife Eastern Ontario has to offer. It’s a drive I do a lot, not because of anything specific but because it’s as relaxing a drive as you can get…

I absolutely love the contrast of the purple lilacs against the white…

Sunset Over Yellow Flowers

Experimenting again. This time, a gorgeous sunset illuminated some yellow flowers on the hill overlooking the mill pond. With a little bit of skill, some trial and error, and a lot of luck, I was able to create some images I’m happy with. This really helps when you are having a morning like I’m…

Dash on the Daybed

Dash is our tuxedo cat who looks to me like batman (I’m Batman!). He’s got this great face where the black in his fur comes down only part way on his face and it looks like he’s wearing a mask. That coupled with his brilliantly-coloured yellow eyes makes for a real looker. He has this spot…

Spring Property Exploration

It’s a well-known fact that many photographs feel they are only inspired if they travel to an exotic destination. The inspiration comes from exploring a new place or a new culture. Well I’m here to tell you that doesn’t have to be the case. There is plenty to be inspired about right in your own…

Westport Road Touring

As I continue to explore my new area I call “home,” I’m struck by how different some of the landscape can look from each other. I drive (or hike or paddle) 15 minutes one way, I have nothing but lakes filled with blue water and huge, tall, coniferous trees as far as the eye can see. I go…
