“Even the tiniest of flowers can have the toughest roots.”  ― Shannon Mullen Wildflowers constantly amaze me, in their endless forms and the environments they thrive it. The columbine above, is a native to Ontario and this particular plant was growing from a thin crack in the bedrock. I suppose there was just enough organic mater accumulated in that crack to create the rich soil the columbine prefers and a seed from nearby… Read More

I’m still taking a break, and this is part of it. Had to share this beautiful view from the edge of the lake on this frosty Sunday morning near Bancroft, Ontario. No edits, this is exactly what it looked like, or at least, how my phone saw it 🙂

“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”  ― Sarah Williams I spent Saturday evening with my son, on the dock at the camper near Bancroft, Ontario. Conditions were not ideal, as there was a fine have in the sky and the waxing crescent moon had just set, but we took the opportunity to make a few images despite these conditions. The results, while not quite what I… Read More

I see so much more in my composition, but struggle to articulate just what… Read More

Early one morning in late summer 2014, I went down to the lakefront with my daughter. It was one of those typical cool mornings on the lake where the mist from the warm water rises up and just hangs there for a few minutes before rising higher in the sky to become a cloud. We spent some time on the dock, both making photos of the ethereal beauty of the mist as… Read More
