Cotton Candy Clouds

CottonCandy Clouds

Cotton Candy Cloud

We were kayaking down the Conestogo River on Saturday afternoon. When we left the sun was shining and the weather forecast did not call for rain until evening. As the afternoon progressed these cotton candy clouds moved in. I have never seen anything quite like it before. After that the rain clouds moved in and we got soaked.

Despite the weather we had a good little trip and saw lots of different birds which I will post at a later date.

Abandoned Sugar Shack

This weekend we walked the Elmira Lions Lake Trail around the Woolwich Reservoir. (also known a Floridale lake)

It’s a well maintained trail passing through both deciduous and coniferous forests as well as the town of Floridale.

This abandoned sugar shack was a pleasant surprise.

This effect is a combination of several different effects created in multiple software programs and blended in Photoshop.

Stone Arch Bridge, Blair Ontario

Blair Stone Arch Bridge

Blair Stone Arch Bridge on Bowman Creek

This is the old Stone Arch Bridge that crosses Bowman Creek just outside Blair Ontario. It is visible from Blair Rd. just before Fountain Street. I have read that it was probably built in the mid 1800’s for a rail line servicing the mills in the area.

It is a beautiful hidden gem and hopefully it will receive some sort of maintenance so that it doesn’t succumb to the forces of nature.

River Bank Heron

Went kayaking on the Grand River in Cambridge today and was rewarded with this beautiful Heron strolling along the river bank.

A shot from this past weekend in Wiarton overlooking Colpoy’s Bay.

Conestogo Heron

On Sunday I went for a bike ride down the trail along the Conestogo River south of St. Jacobs and came across this guy standing watch on the other side of the river. They are usually pretty skittish and fly away at the first sight of a human but he was content to stay put while I took his portrait.

Gore Park Heritage Bandstand

Gore Park Band Shell Elmira

The Bandstand in Gore Park, Elmira Ont. was originally built in 1912 by A.M. Bowman.
It replaced the original band shell that was built in the late 1800’s

Woolwich Community Lion’s Club supported the latest restoration of this Woolwich Township Heritage building in 2012. More historical information can be found in this article http://observerxtra.com/2/featured/and-the-band-played-on/

I took this photo a few years ago and republish it now with some PhotoArtistry added.
