On a late evening shoot at Grundy Provincial Park the sun was starting to settle on the horizon. The water was calm in this side of the lake. Clear Lake is one of a number of lakes in the park. I had this very interesting rock form to work with. There is a lone Pine tree ahead. The Pine tree is not that distinct but is noticeable. So I had the background and the foreground. I now needed to tie all this in.
I set my tripod up low enough to allow the tree reflections to touch the foreground. My eye now could go from the foreground rock and following the tree reflection to the background. There is also cloud reflections in the water as a fill in.
That concludes this weeks post. So until next time happy trails.
With a quick lunch yesterday, Maureen and I head down to Grundy Provincial Park to continue exploring. The temperature was 3 Celsius as we started our hike. I stopped in at the visitor building to let the people in the office know we where here. After a brief chat we went on our way down the main road. We soon turned off onto the road leading to Clear Lake. You can see Clear Lake from the highway. Maureen remarked how quiet it was as we walked. It is not often that you get a park all to yourself. One thing that I was impressed with is the large spacious campsites that are here.
Upon arrival at Clear Lake, I was soon set up and photographing along the shoreline. The South end of Clear Lake offers some good locations to photograph. There was thin ice to be found on the lake surface. The above composition was one of captures that day. I was attracted by the two clumps of Juniper bushes that were now a rustic reddish color. The stump against the rock was unique. I had two small rocks for the foreground. The ice gives a sense of time. The lovely textures of the rock point adds to the overall effect. It was one of those days were the sunlight was diffused due to the type of cloud cover that day.
At this time of year I do not think that there is an evening to speak of. I am basically now photographing late afternoon to get the good lighting. With a good hike ahead of us, it was time to head back to the vehicle. We arrived back just as it was getting dark. Grundy is about an hours drive from Sudbury.
We arrived home feeling good after an afternoon of fresh air. There was a nice hot stew awaiting us. A great end to an excellent day. Until next time happy trails.
