Unexpected Surprises in Claireville

I took a bit of break from shooting since Thanksgiving but today was my day off from work and I wanted to get some last minute shots of the autumn colours before a predicted windstorm was to hit. I usually park at the southern entrance off Finch and Steeles and I did so again today. A very unique looking bridge stands here at the base of a hill.

It’s slowly crumbling away and I will be curious to see if the city does anything to save it. It’s a little damp along the trail today but the large puddles don’t stop me from exploring. Reaching a crossroads I hang a right along an old road until I see a trail entrance on the right side taking me down into some tall pines. As I exit the pines I find a small pond perfectly reflecting the trees around it.

Following the trail I’m taken through a field and back into the forest and finally back out onto the road. Here is what I was looking for. A winding road surrounded by red, orange and yellow leaves. I decided to try out my Redhancer filter that I had bought at a show the week before; it really made those red tones pop just a little more.

I walked up and down this section of the road a couple of times to get a few different angles. I was sad that this windstorm was coming as I would have liked to visit a couple more times. I’ll just have to remember this spot for next year.
