I entered a local contest which was titled" My Algonquin", so I dug up my favorite shots from the park from this past spring, summer and fall....This frigid cold return of winter today makes me long for our spring time hikes and fishing adventures, then our Moose Hunting with cameras in May and the hunt for spring florals. Summer time there's more hiking and getting up at the crack of dawn for sunrises, then the glorious fall colors on our favorite trails and misty mornings on her gorgeous lakes. It won't be long now...as long as I don't look outside at our 80 kilometer winds and blowing snow

This young Fawn, it could have been a Buck or Doe, kept trying to catch my scent. She/He could see the odd movement when I would reach up to make an adjustment on my camera, but still wasn't sure what she/he was seeing.....then Bang!!!! I was Busted!!!! she/he picked up my scent and in a flash was off bounding away, with White Flag swaying to and fro...I Love how swift and sure footed they are even in belly deep snow....

I was out to our local deer feeding yard on Long Lake, and was safely tucked under some heavy pines....for in this heavy snowfall my camera would have been covered in no time. The people who own the property spread out broken bales of hay for the deer who come across the lake to feed. Unfortunately being a Sunday afternoon there was heavy snowmobile traffic which would scatter the herd of almost 20 deer back to the safety of the woods. In no time at all they slowly peak out from the snow covered pines and start across the lake to the feeding area....the snow was fallen so heavily I could barely see it in my viewfinder...but was so excited when I downloaded this shot, for I knew I could show people how heavy our snow falls can really be.....

Brrr! it was only -24 as a high today but the skies were so blue and the air so crisp....just had to venture out for a shoot....Had to convert this shot to B&W with such strong sunlight the tonal values were really blown out...and the monochrome tuned everything down...I love this little set of Falls, these are the upper rapids just above the actual falls....With the snow so deep, venturing below the first set of falls would be a deadly undertaking....some very big boulders to maneuver, nasty ankle twisters for sure! So this was my only safest approach.
