Where Two Rivers Meet

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.....

Thanks Blair! The two people I mentioned are so very Dear to my Heart. My daughter Leanne was always the most encouraging to pursue my art, may it be painting or work with my camera. My friend Martin was an inspiration to how fragile Life is as he battled his cancer but always there with praise and honest critques on my photography. I miss them both Dearly!!!!!!

Awesome shot - beautiful colours ! Haven't been to Mattawa in a number of years, but did get an RCMP escort in - he followed me for about 10km - you've never seen someone driving as perfectly as I did that day !

Condolences on your friend Martin's passing.
