“A rock may seem a sound foundation but deep, nourished, and interwoven roots will hold surprisingly fast over time” – Ed Lehming This tree growing around a large boulder at the top of a hill got me really thinking, as I made this image a few weeks ago. It seems that the boulder would be a challenging place to grow. In fact, as I considered this image, I tried to think of… Read More

“Everything dreams. The play of form, of being, is the dreaming of substance. Rocks have their dreams, and the earth changes….”  ― Ursula K. Le Guin Image two of this series of photos of the wonderful rock formations at Egan Chute. I found it interesting, despite my education in geology, that the form and flow of the rock really resonated with me, not for the first time, but very strongly. Enough to make… Read More

“Water is the most perfect traveller because when it travels it becomes the path itself!”  ― Mehmet Murat ildan This image is another of High Falls, near Bancroft, Ontario. I really could spend a day photographing various parts of the waterfall, as light shifts and different elements of the flowing water reveal themselves. The ancient rock structures in this area add so much character to the waterfalls through their deep textures and colours…. Read More

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” ― Gustave Flaubert “The Arch” – Cabo San Lucas Above is another image of the “Arch” at Cabo San Lucas. What I feel makes this image unique is that there is not a single tourist boat in front of it. The photo was made early one morning as we were heading out for a day of diving, too… Read More

“These rocks are too heavy, can’t carry them any more, don’t know why I ever picked them up before, going to have to put them down where they don’t belong, ’cause I can’t get them back to where they came from. These rocks belong to no one, except history. Somewhere between the desert and the rolling sea, or maybe up in the mountains blue and tall, I picked them but now I’m… Read More

“We are often unaware of the gradual decline and the erosion in our lives but not unaware of the gnawing feeling it brings.” ― Eric Samuel Timm As I stood on the shore, I could not help but notice the features of this rock outcropping. Wave after wave flowed over it and the light revealed deep scrapes and abrasions. Small rocks washed and danced over the surface and around the edges. The… Read More

Elegant in it’s simplicity? Apparently, someone had been throwing rocks onto the ice, hoping for a breakthrough? I returned a few days later to find dozens of rocks littering the ice surface. It turns out that the frost pushed them from an adjacent cliff and the rolled across the ice, coming to rest some distance from their source. Things are not always as they seem. Perhaps this situation is a combination of… Read More

Egan Chute is the first of three chutes (Egan, Middle, and Farm) on the York River near Bancoft, Ontario. Egan is the easiest to access and perhaps the most beautiful. At this point of the York River, the river flow bends around a corner and flows with incredible power and beauty across a series of ‘steps’ creating a wonderful fan effect. The wet summer this year has kept the water flowing well,… Read More
