Bassfin Lake is located in the Sudbury area.
You travel the Matagamasi Lake Road .
This is an interesting lake to photograph for its colorful rock structures.
Every trip I made here I appeared to be the only person on the lake
The best photographing was in the evening in low light.
Then the colors became warm and beautiful
The little island on Wolf Lake from a different perspective
This area is home to old growth Red Pine
Only 1.2% of the world’s old growth Red Pine forests remain.
The largest is in Ontario, Canada surrounding Wolf Lake.
Glacially sculpted white quartzite cliffs surround Wolf Lake and are prevalent throughout this adjacent Temagami area.
The joy of being streamside
The music of running water
The sunlight filtering through
The cedar trees
A fallen cedar tree beckons
A place of peace and solitude
Paradise Lagoon. A world of its own
The sound of running water
Pristine and turquoise
Beautiful colored rocks
Surrounded by Cedar and Pine trees
I made a number of trips here.
To capture the beauty to be found here
Hoping for the right lighting
To create the right compositions
Evening is fast approaching
The river opening up
A reflecting of color on the water
Wind shaped snow drifts
The art of nature
A touch of blue
I combined the two trunks of a Birch tree with the yellow, red and green leaves to create this composition.
My daughter Maryjean and I spent last Sunday evening canoeing Bassfin Lake, off the Matagamasi Lake Road. She fished and I photographed. The bugs were there, thus requiring a bug jacket. The wind was here and there. Never totally calming down. I was dropped off on the largest island on the lake. As I walked the shoreline, I spotted this reddish colored rock in the shallow waters. It was ringed with Pine pollen. It has a face effect to it. The blue water gave me good contrast with the reddish rock. You can just observe the lake bottom on the left side of the photo. I utilized the water vegetation to create the odd number of objects.
It was a nice evening canoeing and photographing. It was a fitting way to finish off Father’ Day with my daughter enjoying a couple hours outdoors. I am off to Lake Superior Provincial Park for a week of photographing. So until next time, happy trails
I shot this composition for its peacefulness and quiet dignity. The stream took a bend here and there was some reflections. A cloudy sky with even lighting. I kept it tight so that the emphasis was on the stream. You have the around the bend effect. The water is blue from the sky even though it is cloudy. An overall lovely scene to look at. It was kept quite simple.
Well it has been quite a busy week for me. I have spent a great deal of time promoting my new book A Wilderness Experience Through Photos And Poetry. I thank those folks who have purchased the book. You can view it here.
I would also like to thank those who stopped by for a visit. Until next week happy trails
