Provincial Parks of the South West

One of the great things of living in south western Ontario is the number of Provincial Parks located close to home. I’ve decided to explore as many as possible this summer. Today’s plan was to visit three parks located on Lake Erie – Rock Point, Selkirk and Turkey Point. The first stop was Rock Point Provincial Park.

At Rock Point there is an exposed rock (who’d have thunk it, right?) that if one looks closely, it is covered in fossils. That’ snot all one can find there the long stretch of rocky beach is a great place to test out some long exposures as the waves rolled in. Next stop was Selkirk Provincial Park.

A much smaller park than Rock Point it has a lovely little cove that I feel in love with. The curve coming in from the left drew me straight over begging to be photographed. I didn’t spend too much time here as there wasn’t much else to see here and it was time for the final stop of the day Turkey Point Provincial Park.

The park was more than a little disappointing. With not much in the way of trails and a beach a short drive away it’s not one I would spend any time camping at. I did however spend about an hour at the beach focusing my attention on the bobbing balls and the effects a longer exposure would create. After getting the shot I wanted I packed up and set my sites for home.
