Winter’s Mid-day Light

Winter’s Mid-day Light

I had several errands to run today, and one of them took me up to the town of Mono. I decided to go for a short hike at Splitrock Loop Trail since it was just up the road from one of my stops. If you've read my other post, How Things Can Change in 4...

Bad Weather is Brewing

I met my friend Nigel at Meadowvale Conservation Area for a hike around the credit river. It was an overcast day but the place looked promising when we spotted a hawk in a nearby tree. We, of course, had the wrong lenses to capture an image of the hawk. The hawk...

Hanging By A Thread

With autumn still here and things back to being brown, I've slapped on my macro lens and headed back out into the wilds of my neighbourhood to find some things to photograph. I passed this poor sumac flower at the beginning of my walk and it looks like it has taken...
