Whiteswan Lake, Whiteswan Lake Provincial Park.
The buildings you see in the photo, I believe is a lodge.
This is the Northwest corner of Whiteswan Lake.
I talked my granddaughter Tisha into driving up to High Falls near Levack. Lots of water now. The Fall colors are scattered. I mostly did tight compositions to contain the color in the photo. It was late evening. The rock structure was very rich in detail and color.
The following morning after my evening photographing, I returned to the Montreal River. This time it was at dawn. The river was thick with mist. The morning temperature at my campsite in Sawpit Bay, Lake Superior was 12 Celsius. On my arrival at the Montreal River the temperature was 5 Celsius. The distance between the two locations was only 40 Kilometers. I set up at the same location from the previous evening. It was a matter of waiting for the right lighting. Waiting for the fog to lift was a factor. The fog helped eliminate all that blue sky with no clouds. It was a nice setup watching the morning evolve. The crispness of the morning air felt good. It was a fall feeling.
The temperatures are beginning to drop here. Maybe the colors of fall will come on. Fall is the time of year when the air is cool and crisp. The beauty of the land is before you in a spectrum of color.
The fall colors up here in northern Ontario are late this year. I arrived at Sawpit Bay, Lake Superior, late afternoon on September 16. Sawpit Bay has a number of campsites on crown land that are free. It was not long before the campsite was set up, supper started to the sound of waves crashing upon the beach. One of my goals was to explore the Montreal River up the highway.
The Montreal River is a large river with a number of large dams at various locations going inland. Windmills have been going up at a steady pace, thus the need for more and more roads in the back country. This creates more opportunities for photographing.Therefore I was able to explore along the river where ever I could. The first two days were lost due to rain and one thunderstorm overnight Strong winds prevailed. It was not till the evening of the September 21 that I was able to capture any decent photographic work.
The above photo was at a location that I discovered on the Montreal River. I had previously found this location early in my trip by driving a short piece off the main gravel road down to the river’s edge. It turned out to be a nice campsite with a good place to put a boat in. The wind had finally gone quiet after six days. The river here was like a piece of grass. To finally get to capture a photo.
Well that is it for this week. Thank you everyone for stopping by. So until next time, happy trails.
A rainy day. Out for a drive. A beaver pond beside the highway. The location is just south of Sudbury, Ontario. I have seen this site many times, but it just needed the right ingredients to work This all added up to a late fall composition. It does not come much easier than stepping out of your vehicle and setting up your equipment by the highway.
The leaves here are predominantly yellow and thinning out. This is a quiet peaceful scene that is a common scene in Northern Ontario. Yellowish brown grass to the green of the evergreens. You can view the beaver house to the right. The winter storage of food is on the left at the edge of the shoreline. As it turned out it was a cold hard winter just past.
Thank you for stopping by. I would like especially to thank those who have become subscribers. So until next time happy trails.
The wind is calm
The air being crisp
A clear blue sky
The exposed hills aglow
With the morning sunlight
A touch of color
Decorates the ancient hillside
Shadows are opening up
A light mist roams
The quiet lake waters
The grass filled shallows
Resplendent in rusty brown
A stray beam of light
Filtering throw shadowy trees
Casts a lustrous glow
On the sunlit grass
There is a stirring
Of a north wind
From over the hills
Rustling through the trees
The morning mist dispersed
The lake’s surface ruffled
By the strengthening wind
