downriver (colour and b&w)

the lower falls trail of letchworth state park essentially begins at the ‘127 steps’ that lead you lower into the genessee river gorge. once at the bottom of the stairway, the trail splits. to the right will take you right to the falls (as per the previous image post: the lower falls) while to the left will take you towards a bridge and the river itself. this is a downriver view at some point along the ‘left’ trail.

Weather Beaten Charm (B&W)

there are some country roads just south of short hills provincial park in and around fonthill, ontario where the landscape oozes charm. in my travels, i have come across this weather beaten cabin – i fell in love with its setting and waited for the fall colours to arrive before photographing it. here it is at the early onset of those autumn colours.

ride over the whirlpool

Ride Over The Whirlpoolthe whirlpool aero car is an attraction on the canadian side of the niagara river. the cable car rides for about 1 kilometer above the niagara gorge at the naturally-occurring whirlpool (because of the change in the river’s direction). here is the suspended antique cable car photographed in the area’s autumn splendour!

autumn at morningstar

Autumn At Morningstar

morningstar mill in all it’s fall colour splendour! the right-hand building is the grist mill that still produces flour during the summer and early fall months. the red structure on the left represents the sawmill that was once operating on the site. both reflected  on a small pond that is fed by lake gibson, a man-made reservoir that provides water to the city of st. catharines. the water eventually tumbles at decew falls, just beyond the buildings.

standing around

VC1202

i love photographing lone trees – the countryside offers wonderful opportunities to do so. i came across this one near north pelham, ontario as i was exploring the country roads of the niagara region. the cow standing around was a bonus, I suppose… 😉

mystery vessel revisited

Mystery Vessel Revisted

now living in the area, this mystery vessel visible from the qew (queen elizabeth way) stationed in jordan harbour near st. catharines, ontario, is readily accessible.

there does not seem to be a definitive story about this vessel. apparently it is (was) a replica of la grande hermine; the carrack that brought jacques cartier to this continent in 1535.

mist rising

Mist Rising

a trip to niagara falls was always a treat – i would usually hit it a couple of times a year. now of course, i am living in st. catharines, ontario and am a mere 15 minute drive to the falls anytime i like… this was photographed in august of summer 2015 on a fireworks display night. i usually got there about 2 hours before the show and hoped for a beautiful sky and light over the falls. this night did not disappoint!
