The 10th Anniversary (Winter 2017) issue of Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine is now at the newsstands. Congratulations to editor Roy Ramsay and the staff at OPC! Ten years ago, I began writing and illustrating a feature called 'Discovering Canada' in each issue of the magazine. With this 40th issue, I explore the northwestern region of Ontario, the Lake of the Woods area in and around Kenora that borders the eastern side of Manitoba. Each issue of the magazine features interesting and topical articles by some of Canada's finest nature and outdoor photographers ... and the images aren't too shabby either! In every issue, editor Roy Ramsay runs a profile with an interview and portfolio of images from either an aspiring or seasoned photographer. And there is much, much more too! I invite you to have a look and join us!

The area that stretches from Kenora south to Morson in Northwest Ontario is sparsely populated and not a popular destination for travelers as they mostly confine themselves to the TransCanada Highway from Winnipeg to Thunder Bay. This area is however very scenic as cottage owners know only too well. While Rushing River Provincial Park is clearly the most popular destination in the area, the landscape in and around beautiful Lake of The Woods is second to none in terms of beauty. From fog blanketed lakes at sunrise to blazing red maples in autumn, there is plenty to explore here. You are sure to hear the haunting cry of the loon and, if you are truly lucky, you may just witness a timber wolf cross Dryberry Creek as I did last weekend while photographing red maple trees reflecting in the creek.
