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.

Autumn is back in all its glory! Whether in your own backyard, or your favorite country walk, it's time to get out there and experience fall colors. The fall season, a favorite for many, can explode with colour but it can also be brief!
