Mid-Summer Sunset

Golden Light Three years ago a group of Arboretum volunteers created the "Canada 150 Trail" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the creation of Canada.Quite by chance it was found this year that the Birch Alley that forms part of the trail is directly oriented towards the setting sun for the few [...]

Easter Monday on the St-Lawrence

Text here St-Lawrence River at Pointe-Claire Easter Sunday and the river was very high after the recent rains and the melting snow. Beautiful light looking across to the opposite shore.

This Week’s Photograph (10 March 2019)

I feel you are all tired of pictures of snow, however beautiful, at this end of the winter so this week I am again sharing a photograph from my personal archives. One that I like a lot but which I know some struggle with. This photograph was taken about five years ago as the [...]

Riverside Mist

A bit of a thaw As the record cold and snow of the last week started to thaw slightly and as the freezing rain turned to plain nasty rain a mist rose all over the west island. This was the St-Lawrence river as seen from Bertold Park EXIF data [...]

A wall against the mist

Early morning at Kenauk A picture from the archives ... Several years ago while staying in the cabin at Kenauk I took my camera and a mug of coffee for a short walk. To the left of the trees is a large lake that was dense with early mist while to the right is [...]

Misty Morning at Kenauk

Entrance to Lac Hidden Every now and again I am going to post a photograph "from the archives". This was taken in 2011 from the dock of a cabin we rented every September at Kenauk for a few days fishing, birding, botanising, lazing. We haven't been for two or three years after an unbroken [...]

An English Field

When we were in England a few weeks ago we chanced upon this quintessentially English field ... on a hot and sunny spring day. The field had cows, it had Crows and Magpies and swathes of assorted small, yellow spring flowers (not all of which were dandelions). For the most part the hedgerows had [...]

“Springtime in Paradise”

It's been snowing ... Mid-March in Montreal we wouldn't expect anything else - other than that friends from milder climates are sharing pictures of green grass and spring flowers while our brave clump of snowdrops that was standing tall yesterday is once again (third time) buried from site. Nevertheless, it's been a beautiful morning [...]

Grand Manan

This photograph depicts the extreme southernmost point of the island of Grand Manan in the Bay of Fundy on a day of quite dense sea mist while we were in search of Bald Eagles and other good birds. There has been some minor post-processing in Capture One Pro, but essentially this captures accurately the views [...]

Christmas Eve

After a really nasty weather-weekend, we are just thankful that the worst of the storm passed to the south of us and we don't live anywhere near electricity-free Toronto this Christmas. Today, Christmas Eve it is a beautiful, bright, sunny -15C and the garden looks gorgeous. All's well with the world ... Sunrise [...]
