This photo was taken this past spring on Vancouver Island. Each morning we got up early to catch the morning light. This day we were blessed with a beautiful sunrise!
We took a road trip to eastern Ontario last weekend and stopped in Almonte on the Mississippi River. I didn’t realize Ontario had a Mississippi River! The falls were beautiful as was the town. More info about the town can be found here. About Almonte
The Historic Roxy Theater in Owen Sound is the home of The Owen Sound Little Theater.
Every year from May to October, communities across the province open the doors to hundreds of historical buildings, places of worship, museums, private homes, industrial areas, green buildings, heritage gardens and other interesting venues – some of which are rarely accessible to the public. Many of the participating sites offer special activities, such as tours, exhibitions and demonstrations – all free of charge!
The theater was part of Doors Open Ontario in Owen Sound. Check out the Doors Open web site for more info.
Here is another Water Lily taken at Point Pelee National Park on the Marsh Boardwalk trail.
This was taken at Point Pelee National Park on the Marsh Boardwalk trail. It is a short 1 kilometre (0.6 mile) walk along a floating boardwalk through the marshlands. It is a great little hike to observe marsh habitat.
This is St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Lindsay Ontario. I love the architecture of these old churches.
This was taken in Limehouse Ontario at the Limehouse Conservation Area where you can find the ruins of a lime mine and kilns. They were used in the early production of natural cement (gypsum).
There was a lot of debris upstream. Probably as a result of the ice storm last winter. Even though the view was not as clear upstream as I’ve seen in other shots online, it is still an interesting place to visit.

Today’s post brings us back to my trip to Vancouver Island. The Evelyn May is beached beside a shop in Ucluelet that sells all kinds of interesting stuff. It was a fun place to poke around in.
This footbridge can be found on the Health Valley Trail that meanders its way along the Conestogo River between the villages of St. Jacobs and Conestogo. It is a beautiful and relaxing spot!
The effect applied to this photo is a result of multiple process from HDR to texture blending. I just kept experimenting with it until I got a look I liked.
Here is another shot of Inglis Falls shot at a lower angle than the previous post.
Located in the Inglis Falls Conservation Area they are the focal point of a beautiful area with some great hiking trails. http://www.greysauble.on.ca/ca_lands/inglisfalls.html
These unique rock formations are found on Flowerpot Island just north of Tobermory Ontario. We took the boat trip over and had fun exploring the island. It is well worth the trip if you ever get the chance.
Here is the description from the island website.
Just 6.5 kilometers off the coast of Tobermory lies Flowerpot Island, one of Canada’s most fascinating natural attractions. Flowerpot Island is famous for its natural sea stacks, the “flowerpots”, as well as its caves, historic lightstation and variety of rare plants. Accessible only by boat, Flowerpot Island is the only island in Fathom Five National Marine Park with campsites and hiking trails. It is a great place to spend half or a full day exploring the island, viewing the scenery, picnicking or swimming.
