Colors in autumn can be overwhelming. I like to walk and explore along the shoreline of ponds where I often discover quieter, intimate views. Minden, Ontario

A heavy frost covered much of the ground last night in Whiteshell Provinciaal Park. I enjoy the crisp mornings of autumn.
I'm always amazed at the little jewels one can find even in mostly built-up areas. The Torrance Barrens, situated on ancient rock outcrops interspersed by wetlands, is recognized as Canada's first Dark Sky Reserve. This 1990 hectare area of provincial crown land is situated southeast of Bala in Muskoka, Ontario's cottage country. The area is protected space free from intrusion by urban light pollution. Views of the night sky are said to be spectacular here although I have yet to experience them here. I did however witness a spectacular sunrise filled with fog and beauty.
