Bearded Purple Iris

I love these large Bearded Iris that bloom this time of year.
I took this shot while out for a walk the other day and spent this evening creating this piece using several different software tools.

On the Look Out

Lookout goose

The  weather this Victoria Day long weekend turned out beautiful and I got out in the Kayak. I spotted this family of Canada Geese with Mom and Dad on the lookout while the little ones blissfully do what they do unaware of any possible dangers.

Cardinal

We have a Cardinal visiting the feeder in our backyard. Got this shot of him this afternoon.

Cash Only

Cash Only

This sign is at an abandoned gas station near Owen Sound. I don’t think many people carry enough cash for gas these days considering how much it costs to fill up.

Hogg’s Falls

Hoggs Falls

Hogg’s Falls

I recently had a chance to visit Hogg’s Falls just north of Flesherton Ontario. This seven meter high falls on the Boyne River was named for William Hogg.

It is very easy to get to – not so easy to get down to the river bed – especially in the winter. Caution is advised.

Engine 6593

This is Engine 6593 which happily pulls passenger cars full of tourists and train enthusiasts between Waterloo, St. Jacobs and Elmira.

I took this shot at the train yard in St. Jacobs. Built in 1957, it has been lovingly restored by the members of the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS).

Ice Dam

Ice Dam

So far this year we are experiencing typical Canadian yoyo weather patterns with bone chilling cold to mild spells.

With the recent shot of mild weather and rain we had the ice break up with large chunks deposited on the river banks.

Here we have a nice pile of ice at the dam in St. Jacobs.
