I have been out of town for a few days visiting our friends Gunther and Linda. We had a very pleasant visit but I did not take any pictures. Actually just this one on a walk along the Welland canal. The image really has the feeling of a late and dark November day. On our return home however we really encountered true Canadian Winter with lots of snow. So in the next few month snow will be prominent in my blog images.

On Saturday we received our first major snowfall but it most of it disappeared by Sunday afternoon. I took a little photo tour in the country and came back wit a few interesting images. This image is actually for Nonie, Jason and Chris for their very flattering postings about my blog and my teaching. So thanks to all of you for those comments.

I decided to post another image of the shed I photographed yesterday. I was not completely happy with yesterday's picture so looked at the other views of the same subject and came to the conclusion that this image was much stronger. It shows a much more complex textured subject making the picture visually more interesting.

In her last posting Nonie would like to know if I ever used large format cameras. The short answer is yes but I prefer the flexibility of the medium and 35 mm cameras. Nowadays I really enjoy using a digital camera. The digital camera has given the photographer a greater freedom in seeing and creating the images.

This image is for Janet Bourgeau, who just discovered my blog and really enjoyed the pictures. She told me last night how much she likes the cedar grove in Ville Marie. I have to say I enjoy that spot myself it has a special atmosphere which I try to capture every time I visit the old fort.Hope you like this picture Janet.

As I promised yesterday I have some more good images from my trip to Ville Marie in Quebec. I like dark rainy days. The light and atmosphere on those days always give me inspiration for some fine dramatic images like this one of Lake Timiskaming. Even though it was a dark and gloomy day occasionally the sun would show through the cloud cover for a few moments.

Today was a very wet day. This morning we had a heavy snowfall so I thought it might be a good idea to drive to Ville Marie in Quebec.I had had planned to return to old fort Temiscaming to photograph the area in the snow. Of course, driving up North, there was absolutely no snow but lots of rain.The skies were quite dramatic and I had a great day taking pictures. This image shows one of the freight canoes on the shore of the lake. at the right moment the sun came through the clouds and gave a nice light on the bow of the canoe.

A few weeks ago a new walking and hiking trail was opened in Callander, Ontario. I really enjoy this trail it takes you through a variety of landscapes and ends at the shores of lake Nipissing. I will be taking quite a few pictures on my walks of this trail.

Again Halloween is over for another year. I took this picture at a house here in North Bay which always has outrageous displays with Halloween. Hugh inflatable dolls of ghouls, witches and goblins and other figures like this one cover the area around the house.
