There is something magical as the sun begins her journey through Earth's atmosphere, the gorgeous array of colours that will light up the surface of a low cloud ceiling, just excities the creativety in me. I will brave the black flies and mosquitoes just to capture those wonderous moments, so I

So sorry for not keeping up my blog for so long, we experienced an illness that was quit severe this past winter and I was not in a proper frame of mind with concerns for my husband's welfare.....he is now doing much better Thank You, Dear Lord!
Here are a few shots from our annual photography event here in Algonquin with other members of my camera club, with a total of 22 Moose sightings, 5 Whitetail Deer sightings, 2 Beavers and a lovely range of Birds including 2 Raptors it was a great success. But the bonus this year was a close-up encounter with an Eastern Wolf right along the roadway. Sad to say my images of the animal were not very good, I had borrowed an older Nikon telephoto lens that was not compatible to my newer camera, so could not focus or zoom properly. The Wolf allowed us only a few minutes before he retreated back deep into the forest! But his image will be forever ingrained in my mind!!!!!
The silky water shots were taken at Tea Lake Dam, as this young man was working his fly rod in pursuit of some tasty Brook Trout.

After a late season snow storm I headed out to shoot the falls in Arrowhead Park, I'm sorry it's been a while since my last post...Jan & Feb our family was plagued with illness, and my husband especialy suffered the worst infections and ended up with Septecemia and Meningitis and 6 days in the hospital...so my camera was the last thing on my mind...All is well, my husband is on a long road to recovery and I've got the shutter bug again!!!!It is always a challenge to shoot silky water on bright sunny days but with the sun low in the southern sky I was in enough shade to still capture these shots.....Hope you will enjoy our winter wonderland!!!!!

We finaly have a tree tall enough to put lights on this year...in fact when you look closer there are 4 little trees all growing along side of each other. The snow was quit heavy today so some of the lights were pulled down...causing some blank areas....but I still think it's pretty!
