The Joys of Niagara

There are many things to enjoy about Niagara. Not just those on Clifton Hill and in the Niagara Falls tourist areas. Beyond the bright lights and cascading waters, the Niagara peninsula offers a wealth of things to explore. From hiking trails and conservation areas with diverse flora and fauna, to the less obvious. We are
Sunrise over the break wall in Port Colborne

Sunrise Over Sugarloaf

Technically Gravelly Bay, but ‘Sunrise Over Sugarloaf’ is more alliterative and I think it sounds better. This image is from the winter of 2022 when ice and snow covered land and water in equal measure. The sharply defined horizon line features the Port Colborne sea wall and lighthouses. The sun peeks over the grain elevators
Kid plays in a puddle beside Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls Is Wet

First time visitors to Niagara Falls often overlook the fact that the famous mist coming from the falls rises far above the retaining wall, and can fall almost like rain. Children often pay more attention to splashing through the puddles than they do looking at the falls. Which drives parents crazy, and which makes me
Hobbit hole

The Hobbit

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: It was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” J.R.R. Tolkien So
Toronto Skyline

Toronto Skyline

The Toronto skyline is instantly recognizable from almost any direction. The iconic CN Tower, with the doughnut shaped observation decks sitting at the top just below the communication antenna spike will bring fond memories to those that walked around it on the Edge Walk. Or stood on the glass floor gazing at the earth far

Here There Be Dragons

As I travel through Niagara my journeys encompass many sights and sounds. Not all are epic landscapes and sunrises. Some are small, and invite questions. Is this a dragon or a sea monster? Why is it apparently wearing armour? Is it a superhero or a super villain? Why is it so adorable and cute? Most
Geese and a heron at the pond

Pond Life

This image was taken Somewhere In Niagara just after sunrise one Summer morning in 2021. The geese gaggled noisily. The heron tried to look cool, aloof and mysterious, by staring into the distance. Like the weird kid in the school yard, everyone just ignored him. There were frogs somewhere, I could hear them but not
Misty wood scene, somewhere in Niagara

Mist Me?

This is the time of year where temperatures change a lot in the twilight period between night and day. When that happens, you get mist. Lots of it. I find mist atmospheric, in all senses of the word. There is something about mist that just draws you in. Makes you want to see more. The
Spider web in morning sun

Spider Dawn

As Spring becomes increasingly insistent, the animal world wakes from Winter slumber and prepares to face the world. Mating dances begin. As food becomes more easily found, predators of all sizes begin to hunt in earnest. Spiders are predators. They do not eat plants. As insect life returns to the air the webs begin to
Geese on a pond

Geese On A Pond

Driving around as I do, I see lots of geese. I mean, lots. Sometimes hundreds flock together in a field and squabble over territory. Or fly in uneven formations through the sky. Or just float serenely on a pond. These two were getting comfortable exploring this little corner of the universe. I suspect nesting and
