Algonquin

It’s a small world. Lori and I traveled to Algonquin Provincial Park last week to try and catch the fall colours. The park was very busy. I’ve never seen so many photographers! The leaves were still beautiful but a little past their peak. We drove down the Source Lake road and parked. As we were heading to a portage that runs along a stream, there were a group of people taking photos. Two of them were students of mine from the Seneca photography program. It was fun to chat with Echo and Song. We posed for pictures with them and then continued on our way. We hiked down a steep hill and shot the leaves and water.

It started to rain Friday afternoon so we headed back to camp for the evening. The next day it was still wet and raining on and off. We packed up camp and drove west to Oxtongue Rapids Park. It was full of cars and photographers. Finally we found a place to park the van and wandered along the river looking for an open location to shoot. It was difficult to find an opening without another photographer in view. The light was low and perfect for moving water. There was still a lot of colour. We worked up and down the river for a couple of hours. As I was shooting a man came up and started talking to Lori. He was a member of the Etobicoke camera club. I had just presented my work to his club September 15th. We chatted at the river for a few minutes and then got back to work.

We didn’t see much wildlife. Still, it was good to walk in the fall air and snap a few…
