“Afternoon Forest” – Fraser Lake Camp

“Afternoon Forest” - Fraser Lake Camp

“I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy” – Anais Nin

It is a joy to experience, at the deeper level, some of the scenes I come across in my journey through life. Places my feet have travelled many times, at once become magical with the addition of the elements of light. It’s that particular moment when the sun shines between the trees in a winter afternoon can makes a simple forest into a wonderland of light and texture, and then, it’s gone, never to look quite the same again, except in that brief moment, as an image captured and remembered.

Above is an image of the forest along the shores of Fraser Lake, near Bancroft, Ontario. I’d spent most of the day snowshoeing  through the forest trails and along the frozen lakeshores. Overnight, a wet snow had fallen and stuck to trees and grasses. A rapid daytime cooling preserved the effect well into the day. I was fortunate to be returning to camp by way of the Lone Pine trail when the scene presented itself to me.
