Evening Glory

A number of years ago, I took a photograph of this lake with my EOS ELAN-7E. I have always wanted to take something similar, but since I have a young kiddo now, I can’t get out (and stay out) as late as I would like during a typical camping trip. …

Lookout Trail Panorama

This is my first real attempt to photo-stitch a landscape. This scene, consisting of four photos merged together, is the main overlook on the Lookout Trail in Algonquin Park. It is a fantastic vista and surely worth the hike (which isn’t really all that long – it is just all …

Fiery Morning

I visited Little Doe Lake in Algonquin Park with some friends over a long weekend in August, 2008. It rained like Noah was coming for most of the beginning of the trip. The foul weather kept a grip on us for most of the weekend, intermittently teasing us with warmth …

Behold Toronto

I had the opportunity to take some photos of the city in the early morning from a very unique vantage point. I was sharing the space with some other photographers, and I didn’t want to have the same images they did. I decided to take advantage of the fog to …

Parkside Sunrise

Parkside Bay is a nice little spot in Algonquin Park if you want to catch a great sunrise. Most of the sites (with the exception of a few) allow a great view of the sun peeking over the horizon. This was taken in August of 2006, and yes, those are …

Window to the Past

September in the Distillery District of Toronto can yield some interesting images. In 2005, we visited this historic place, and found a plethora of images to capture. This one is interesting because it highlights one of the many big windows in the area, which reflects some of the old buildings. …

Angel Wings

August 2005 saw us camping in Canisbay (Algonquin Park) relatively close to the lake. Sometimes, on a particularly sunny morning,you can capture the rays of the sun through the trees and paint a picture that is other-worldly. I looked up and saw this angelic figure and thought it would make …

Cross-Hatch

This is an image shot in August, 2006 from the North Shore of Parkside Bay. It’s a bit of a pain to get to, having to navigate a few turns in the Algonquin Interior. However, the opportunities for wonderful landscape photos make any negative aspects disappear. This image displays a …

Mystical Island

It’s July 2005 and our intrepid band of camping folk has paddled far enough into the wilderness to get away from the lazy. This is the reward for those who work a little harder than average to get to where they want to go. A sight like this is worth …

Rock Lake Morning

A crisp morning in May 2005 is when this was taken. It was on a fishing trip at a cottage. My friend was still sleeping so I had the morning all to myself. The view from the dock at his cottage is what you are seeing right here. The lake …

Lookout (Black & White)

It was a rainy hike in October of 2004. The bright side to rain is that when it abates, it leaves behind a nice misty landscape. This view was taken on the Booth’s Rock Trail. It was at about the halfway point, and essentially the trail runs along a cliff …
