the comfort maple 2

a different take than the previous ‘the comfort maple 1’…

named after the comfort family who owned the land it sits on from the early 1800’s, the comfort maple is a sugar maple tree that lives in the comfort maple conservation area in pelham, ontario. it is believed to be approximately 500 years old and would be one of the oldest such trees in canada. the comfort maple was designated a heritage tree in june 2000 under the ontario heritage act .

from the information sign on the site:

THE COMFORT MAPLE
This tree, believed to be Canada’s oldest Sugar Maple (acer saccharum) was accepted for its preservation April 30th 1961, by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority from Miss Edna Eleanor Comfort, whose family have owned this land since 1816. She and her late brother, Earl Hampden Comfort, to whose memory this tree is now dedicated with gratitude and affection, reserved this plot of land for its protection in 1946

frozen by the falls

for the record, i don’t like winter. why humans are subjected to this inhumane season is beyond me… but it does make for some wonderful photographs. this was photographed early one winter morning earlier this year at niagara falls, ontario.

desert acacia of the mountains

for those of you familiar with my earlier work, you will notice that the photographs that i captured in israel have been presented in colour. it became rather evident that israel is an incredibly special place. i was taken by the wonderful scenery afforded almost everywhere we went! though it was my intent to continue with black and white photographs, the editing process dictated otherwise… israel, for some reason, presented more favourably in colour the deeper i got into the project.

i will indeed take a stab at presenting some of the work in b&w, but that is for another time… for now, take in this beautiful scene from the eilat mountains: a desert acacia tree surrounded by colourful sandstone cliffs and mountains as we were making our way to the exit of the red canyon.

lakeside tree

Lakeside Tree

a long-awaited trip to watkins glen in the finger lakes region of new york state finally materialized this past fall. i had driven through the region in the past and remember the charm of the towns that we passed through. this short trip however, was for visiting the watkins glen state park and for photographing it.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found this tree at the waterfront.

Weather Beaten Charm

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.

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… 😉

in full bloom

In Full Bloom

the pride of trinidad and tobago! trinbagonians are in awe of these beautiful flowering trees. there are generally three varieties to be found on the twin republic islands in the caribbean: pink, yellow and white. though referred to as poui trees in t&t, they are also known as pink tecoma, pink trumpet or trumpet trees. not unlike, the north american and japanese cherry blossoms, they also flower for a very short time. however, when in full bloom they dot the landscape with a splash of colour. this one was photographed at the rock garden in the queen’s park savannah of port of spain.

the same tree as ‘perched’ (the previous image posted); a tad later, as dusk was setting in… a mirror image produced in the digital darkroom.
