This is Horn Lake, just East of Burk's Falls Ontario. We have a modest little trailer there and enjoy it for 6 months of the year. My favorite hobby is shooting the magnificant sunsets we are blessed with. I never tire of them and this evening my friend Barb posed as my model...with a fine cup of tea in hand. I'm sure with this heat wave something cooler will be a better choice!!!! The waters of this Lake are the cleanest in central Ontario, crystal clear, spring fed with wild lake trout and smallmouth bass. I am going to spend the next 10 days there with family and friends...the only place to beat the heat!!!!!

We were quietly sitting around our campfire this past weekend and suddenly I notice some movement on my left, and behold is this very interesting and unusual little Caterpillar on my camp chair. Now has anyone out there seen such a creature before and know what it is or what it turns into????? I was amazed by it's little white raised lumps and bright red head, it was so cute to shoot as it kept raising it's head towards me. When I zoomed in it did look a bit scary at first.Would appreciate any feedback, and Thank You in advance.....

This wonderful set of Falls is nicely hidden away when the foliage is full, if you were not aware of it's existence you would quickly drive by it, on your way to two Algonquin Park Access Points on the West Boundary Line. I was told the locals call them Yankee Falls, but others have referred them to Magnetewan Falls, and other names. They are part of the Magnetewan Watershed system, and whenever we are in the area I "Must" stop to do a shoot or just breath in their Beauty!!!!! This Monday's weather was dark and misty, perfect for shooting with a slow shutter speed....and since I forgot my NDx4 filter I was hoping the sun would stay away....The waters of this system are very dark and a tea stain color, therefore giving it that yellow hue.

There's just something about waterlilies that just draw me to them. I believe it is a sweet memory from my youth when we visited our Quebec relatives on their Lake. I was always thrilled to pick the waterlilies closes to the shore and save them as a centerpiece in a glass bowl on our dinning table, but Mom would not like some of the tiny creatures that would fly off...I would just giggle and tell her we now need some the frogs to eat those bugs...and she would show me her look of distaste!!!! Mom never was an outdoorsy girl!!!!
