autumn falls 1 & 2

VC1604

VC1594

invariably as one drives along the queen elizabeth way (qew) towards niagara falls in southern ontario, road signs indicating ball’s falls conservation area can be seen. now living in st. catharines, i finally had a chance to visit the area… the twenty mile creek flows through and plummets over both the upper falls and the lower falls – the latter photographed here from two vantage points across the creek from each other in all its autumn splendour.

ball’s falls, it turns out, is actually a hamlet “… lovingly maintained to its early mid 19th century industrial … atmosphere featuring the original ball family home, an operating flour mill, a lime kiln, a church, black smith shop, carriage shed and more.” – niagara peninsula conservation authority

sawmill at morningstar

VC1257

many moons ago i saw a photo of this red structure (representing a sawmill) in a tourist magazine for the niagara region in southern ontario. i wanted a shot (no pun intended) at photographing it – so after consulting a tourist office, i nailed it down to this site in st. catharines called morningstar mill. i have been visiting this area for the last 10+ years or so, but never really captured it adequately…

anyway, fast forward to the summer of 2015 and my family and i decided to settle in st. catharines after looking around at smaller communities outside the gta (greater toronto area). lo and behold, this site is a mere 10 minute drive away from my home – accessible anytime! 😉

waiting for clouds

Waiting For Clouds

waiting for clouds indeed… having found this site almost by accident in the morning, i returned in the late afternoon, but the sun was still giving off some fairly harsh light. i spent some time hiking the area until clouds started to move in. each time clouds obscured the sun a photo op was made available. after a few tries (and a couple of hours passed), i got this shot of steady brook falls. 😉
