Weather can be so variable nowadays. This was taken January 24th, 6 years ago and the conditions were almost exactly the same yesterday as you see here.

In the ongoing theme of the Sunsetting of Google+, and as today’s theme for a MeWe group is sunset/sunrise, I am sharing a post brought over from that dying network.

After my frantic rush to the shore to see the sun go down, I was rewarded with this beautiful end to the day. I wish you all a good night!

One of my older photographs from a posting made in 2012, remembering warm June nights…. This photo is the latest addition to my Canadian landscapes gallery, which is linked to the photo.

The View on the Way Down from the Lion’s Head Cliffs

The waters of Georgian Bay in Ontario are an extraordinary colour as you can see from this photograph. Apparently they change back to ‘regular’ lake water colour once they become Lake Huron around the top of the Peninsula. This was taken from the top of the cliffs at Lion’s Head. This is a beautiful area of the country and I hope to get back there one day to see more of the sights that I have apparently missed but have been told about by commenters on my previous post.

Our trip to Ontario this spring included a stay on an inlet off Georgian Bay and on one occasion we went on a walk with a climb up through a wood to the top of a cliff overlooking the amazing and unique colours of Georgian Bay itself. Note the absence of handrails (and the presence of rings in the rock for those who climb up the cliff from the shore). It might not look it, but it was a long way down.

It was a tranquil scene unless you suffer from vertigo.

Winter Kale Fields Under Threatening Snow

In fact the snow began as soon as I took this and got back in the car, a real blizzard, one of the ugliest days of the winter (so far). I don’t know what this crop is, but though I wanted to identify it, the weather was so cold and miserable that I just couldn’t bring myself to go into the field to find out. It’s not Brussels sprouts as I thought at first. Let’ hope Spring is soon coming.

Edit: I now realize that this is a field of kale.

Lost Orchard Found

This is an album of pictures of the orchard that inspired the making of the “Lost Orchard” box, which is described in the video about my work. I was asked to show some of the trees from that orchard before it was cut down. I thought I should make a collection to represent these beautiful lost trees. There are 8 photographs you can scroll through from the Lightbox.
