Weavers Creek – Owen Sound

Weavers Creek, Owen Sound

Weavers Creek in Owen Sound’s Harrison Park is a real treasure. A short stroll along the boardwalk and trail to the main falls is so relaxing as all your senses are soothed by the sound of flowing water and the birds of the bush. The lush green leaves and moss covered logs. This is one of the small lower falls before you get to Weavers falls which is a beautiful mid sized water fall. Here is alink to a shot of the main falls. https://villagephotographer.wordpress.com/2015/06/15/weavers-creek-falls-owen-sound/

This swan was having fun rustling it’s wings around in the water creating it’s own morning shower.

This was taken this last winter before the water froze over in Harrison Park Owen Sound.

Happy Canada Day!!

A few weekends ago I was in Harrison Park, Owen Sound where there are quite a few waterfowl in and around the pond. This swan sitting in the snow preening its feathers caught my eye. The beauty and simplicity of white on white was a pleasure to watch and photograph.

Harrison Park in Owen Sound has a beautiful little stream flowing through it. Listening to the flow of the water and walking along it’s route through the park was very relaxing and peaceful.

Another picture from Harrison Park in Owen Sound. This duck was swimming in the river and stopped for a moment on this shallow rock.

I applied an oil painting filter in Photoshop.


Weavers Creek Boardwalk

Here we are back at Harrison Park in Owen Sound. As I mentioned in my Weavers Creek Falls post, access to the falls is short trek made easily via this boardwalk. It is accessible all year round. The sound of running water and the birds calling make this walk peaceful and calming. Walking in the bush and on the beach are two of my favorite things.
