Mica Bay, Lake Superior

Mica Bay, Lake Superior. This was one of my enjoyable evenings spent exploring the shoreline of Mica Bay, Lake Superior.

The evening was becoming late as I observed this scene. The lake was rolling gently. The exposure would be long. That would create a dreamy affect on the water. More so in the foreground. I cast around for a suitable collection of rocks at the water’s edge. The composition soon came together in my mind. I set my tripod as low as I could set it. Therefore, allowing me to create an illusion of less water. To tighten the composition I shot vertically. Too much water would spoil the effect of the composition.

I stretched out on the beach. Being eye level showed me my composition as I wanted it. Thus I was able to create my scene.

Tomorrow Never Came

Tomorrow Never Came

The time has past

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

Our love has gone

My thoughts always turned to you

We never got to say I do

You were the shadow of my life

No matter where I went

But your memory will always

Will always,be cherished

But it is sad

What we really had

If only we knew

Just you and me

I still can’t believe it

After all these years

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

So hello, wherever you are

My love was forever

You were always my lover

Through good and bad times

My thoughts always turned to you

We never got to say I do

You were the shadow of my life

No matter where I went

The time has past

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

Our love was lost

My hair is silver now

Tomorrow never came

Our love has gone

A Quiet Spot

I was photographing at High Falls, Levack late of an evening. I spotted this little nook at the rivers edge. Using the rocks for framing, the dark waters giving contrast. A hint of fast water above. A nice place to sit upon the rocks.

The Fall of each year brings out the muted earth colors of the vegetation in the north country. The spectacular display of the Maples and Oaks are mostly finished. The temperatures are getting colder. What is left?

The rich yellows and browns of various grasses growing in swampy areas. Black Spruce is common in wet areas. Therefore giving you green color in the low light of afternoon.  spectacular, no. Just a nice soft blend of color pleasing to the eye.

I’m Coming Home

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

The time has been long

I will just be along

On the next flight out

Leaving Toronto

I got the next flight out

I’m leaving the blues behind

I am going to bring

All my loving

I’m soaring above the clouds

Leaving them blues behind

Just you on my mind

Just you on my mind

I am flying to Managua

Looking for your love

To take your hand

To take your hand

Just to say, I love you

Just to say, I love you

Just to look above

Thankful for your love

Then walk you home

Like I wrote, in the poem

Oh yeah, just you and me

Falling in love again

Falling in love again…

Falling in love again….

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

Tamarack

The fall colors of the maple and oak are almost gone now. Standing out in contrast with the green of the pines and spruce, the tamarack displays its beauty. The tamarack is also known as larch.

The Algonquian people named this tree tamarack. The meaning, wood used for snowshoes. Its habitat is low lying areas such as swamps,and bogs. The larch is deciduous and the needles turn yellow in autumn.

I photographed this scene in the late afternoon. Sunlight was filtering through the clouds. The side lighting intensified the yellow color of the tamarack. The backdrop of the green spruce helped to allow the tamarack to stand out in the photo.

Late evening at High Falls, Levack. A location that Group of Severn member A Y Jackson chose to paint many years ago.
