A Friendly Chickadee
If you hike at Ken Reid Conservation Area, a friendly chickadee is almost certain to greet you at some point along your way. They are so tame they might even land on our hand.
An Old Barn

Sunrise on a farm near Bury’s Green.
Young beech trees often keep their leaves over the winter, which gives a beautiful coppery colour to the forest.
The Ancient Oak Grove at Night
On a cold winter’s night the air almost seems to glow a golden green colour under the park lights in the Ancient Oak Grove at Maryboro Lodge, giving the trees a unique radiance.

Austin Sawmill Heritage Park
The Rail Trail continues to follow the Burnt River as it winds north. At Kinmount the old Austin Sawmill sits at the dam, with the rail station behind.
About 4 miles north of Kinmount, a High Trestle spans Kendrick’s Creek where it meets the Burnt River. It is one of the most beautiful places on the entire rail line.

And a sunset viewed through an icicle.
Willows at Garnet Graham Park
Over the years countless families have played together under the willows at Garnet Graham Park. Summer or winter they make a striking silhouette as they hang out over Cameron Lake.

Icicle at Black Rock

On Valentines Day 2022 there was a striking lunar halo…
Two Nights in a Row
The next night the lunar halo was back, and true to the old adage “a ring around the moon means rain soon,” heavy precipitation followed. They are caused by cirrus clouds high in the atmosphere, where ice crystals refract light–they appear differently from every vantage point. Cirrus clouds often precede a storm, hence the saying.
Ice can form into such unique shapes as it freezes… this photograph is of the surface of a small creek.
Looking out in either direction from Buckhorn bridge, the the river presents a beautiful vista. This image looking towards Lower Buckhorn Lake was taken just before sunset…
Buckhorn Bridge is also interesting seen from above.

Sunset over Fenelon Falls
Fenelon Falls is a community that has a lot of striking sunsets.
Doesn’t the Dahl Forest look like a magical kingdom from a fairy tale?
A Towering Pine
The trails at Kawartha Nordic Ski Club wind through hardwoods with pines towering above.
Ducks in a Flurry
In mid march the ducks return to the Fenelon River… Despite the flurry of snow, it is a sure sign that spring must be on its way.
