It was so warm yesterday after my work day, so we decided to head off for a ride out to my husband's Old Hunt Camp area. We spotted a Cow Moose & her Twin Calves but way off in the distance, till I heard a funny little noise just below the car window. Here this wonderful little Beaver was busy chomping away without a care in the world, and never noticed us. Usually with a flip of the tail they are gone if you try to get close...so this was a real treat, to shoot in such close proximity.

She awakens from her long winter slumber, the days warm, the snow retreats and the ice becomes thin and rots. Soon we will hear The Call of the Loon on her lakes and streams. The fish will run the streams and rivers to spawn. The shaggy Moose will seek the mineral rich salty water and new growth. Soon many will return to breathe in her Beauty & Serenity. I have returned home.

Sorry for the delay in posting new images....as they say! Life Just Gets in The Way...plus I Lost a very Dear Photographer Friend who was such an inspiration, I wish to dedicate this image to his memory! Martin Hale 1958-2011 May his Love for Life reflect in all my images that I capture of this beautiful world he Loved so Dearly!!!! This shot was taken in a very small town called Mattawa, just East of North Bay. The two rivers of the Mattawa and Ottawa meet here and play an important part in our history. They have an annual Voyageur Days celebration and the population just triples. It's such a cute town and has no traffic lights, just one stop sign! After experimenting with ISO settings and shutter speeds I finally got the perfect exposure, love the ice flows along the foreground, breaking away with the spring time thaw.....
