IN FOCUS

    I just processed this image of an intimate view of Lower Rosseau Falls in Muskoka which I made just before the sun set below the horizon. Cloud prevailed most of the day but the sun peaked through a short time before sunset. The light became too strong for photographing the waterfalls but, as I was walking up the side of the river I noticed the glow of the nearby maples reflecting prime autumn color onto the flowing waters. We kept creating past sunset. Thanks again to Andrew McLachlan and his brother Gregg for this opportunity.

    I will be including this image in my presentation called 'Meditations' that I will be delivering in Regina, Saskatchewan as part of the 'Frame By Frame' Photo Seminar from November 1 to 2. Other speakers on the agenda include Freeman Patterson, Dennis Fast and others.

    My recent trip to Ontario with colleague Peter Blahut was challenging weather wise as we experienced plenty of cloud, rain and wind! When the wind calmed down, we found opportunities to create intimate views of waterfalls as this one at The Fish Hatchery near Rosseau. The lack of contrast kept the detail in the highlights from blowing out and the dark shadows from blocking up. As is often the case, it's a question of finding an interesting angle and waiting ... waiting for the wind to ease enough to make the required long exposure. Thank you to Andrew McLachlan and his brother Gregg for the new discovery.

    A light rain, mixed with a little wet snow, saturated the colors of the maple leaves on this 'off the beaten path' cottage road north of Sault Ste Marie.

    The Montreal River Hill is arguably the most challenging hill along the North Shore of Lake Superior. On my way to Sudbury last month, I noticed the autumn colors were as brilliant as I had ever seen them here. I drove down to the bottom of the hill, turned around and drove half way back up the hill to make this intimate view of a fiery tapestry of maple trees dotted with evergreens that hovered above Lake Superior, just out of the frame.
