a view from the tower

last stop of the day before we continued on to montreal and the weather was still rather dicey; but i decided to pay the fee and go up the 1000 islands tower. once up there, a 360 degree panorama of the region awaits you. this vantage point gives you the canadian side along with the 1000 islands international bridge to the usa. unfortunately, it was too early to have any meaningful colour change in the trees below. another month or so would have given spectacular results, i reckon… lovely clouds though ūüėČ

tubes over the islands

continuing on along the 1000 islands parkway, the unsettled weather persisted and created wonderful tubular or roll clouds. perhaps it was a case of being in the right place at the right time, as these clouds don’t usually last too long before they morph into regular clouds.

farm along the parkway

driving to montreal for a family gathering, we ended up taking the 1000 islands parkway on what was a rather unsettled day, weatherwise. we encountered rain and generally moody weather, save for a short time when we entered the parkway. i love this part of the world and always enjoy the views that all the nooks and crannies along the road afford. here we have a farmstead on the north side of the parkway with some lovely clouds in the sky on this late september day.
