Waves pound the shoreline as the Sun sets along Collingwood's waterfront.

A beautiful rainbow, double at that, appeared briefly over the bay this afternoon.
Ribbons of Colour
My reward for a long walk along the bay at Wasaga Beach.
...on the Beaver River, near Clarksburg.

Mere moments after sunset, the harvest moon rose above the corn field and disappeared into the clouds.
The Sun set right behind me, mere moments before the Harvest Moon started to peek above the horizon. The light was incredible! The hundreds of Sandhill Cranes in the field behind me started to take flight in the glowing light. This shot was about location, location, location!
Watching the River Flow
If I had wings and I could fly
I know where I would go
But right now I'll just sit here so contentedly
And watch the river flow - Bob Dylan
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt. ― John Muir
I'm soaking in every ray of this glorious sunshine!
September Days are Here
By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer.
~ Helen Hunt Jackson
Reaching for Infinity
Beauty is but the sensible image of the Infinite. - George Bancroft
The bay was beautiful yesterday in the morning light. Golden ripples seemed to reach to infinity.
Whispered Good Night
Mother Nature showed her gentler side in Wasaga Beach, in stark contrast to the devastation she unleashed on our southern neighbours.
One of my favourite seasons, apple season!
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~Eleonora Duse
Good Morning Collingwood
Sunrise from Hen and Chickens Boardwalk
"What day is it?"
"It's today" squeaked Piglet.
"My favourite day" said Pooh.
A long exposure gives this sunset capture a painterly feel.
Day's End #1
Spectacular sunset yesterday evening!
Day's End #2
The rain stopped; the clouds parted; and the Sun treated us briefly to the golden light we had craved all day.
Day's End #3
The sun tried its best to peek through the clouds after yesterday's rain.
A thunder storm rolls in over the the Collingwood harbour. This seems to be our weather pattern so far this summer.
“Water is the most perfect traveller because when it travels it becomes the path itself!”

Beaver River before it cascades over Eugenia Falls.
I stood on the side road, breathing the cold, fresh air, and relishing the solitude, when I realized I wasn't alone.
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls. ~ George Carlin
Half Past Autumn
Half past autumn has arrived. ~Gordon Parks
'I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.' - L.M. Montgomery
I have never seen that kind of flow over Eugenia Falls! The main part of the viewing area is flooded, so it was tough to get a good vantage point.
Beaver River #2
Recent rain and Spring runoff have left creeks, rivers and streams flowing pretty fast, and that water is cold!. Be careful along our area trails!
Beaver River #3
Recent rain and Spring runoff have left creeks, rivers and streams flowing pretty fast, and that water is cold!. Be careful along our area trails! This is the Beaver River just before it plummets over Eugenia Falls.
Beaver River #1
Recent rain and Spring runoff have left creeks, rivers and streams flowing pretty fast, and that water is cold! Be careful along our area trails!
Resculpting the Shoreline
When Mother Nature is this angry, it's best to just get out of the way.
Jan. 22, 2016. We are so fortunate in this area to have access to incredible trails!
