Jones Falls – Owen Sound

This past weekend I got the chance to visit Jones Falls. Located at the west side of Owen Sound they are a short hike from the highway. The trail to the falls is an easy walk but if you want to get below the falls – as I did – you will want to have sturdy footwear and take your time.

The water was quite high and flowing fast! I love the sound of the rushing water. It incompasses all your senses and makes it a joy to photograph.

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!!

Weavers Creek Falls

Weavers Creek Falls is located in Harrison Park in Owen Sound Ontario. I have photographed these falls in the winter so it was great to come back this past weekend to get a summer shot. You find these falls at the end of a beautiful boardwalk trail that follows the creek. To get this angle however, you have to venture across the creek.

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.

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.
