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.
Early this spring I went with a few photo friends to take some shots at Sherman Falls in Ancaster Ontario. This is Ancaster Creek – downstream from the falls.
I spent an evening this week with a few new photography friends taking pictures of the St. Jacobs Dam. It’s always interesting to experiment with different settings while taking shots of waterfalls and flowing water.
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 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/
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.
I have posted shots of these falls before but this time I was able to get to the base of the falls for a different angle. 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
This is another shot taken in the same area as the last post along the Pacific Rim Hwy on Vancouver Island B.C. As the water rushed through this small gorge the sight and sound was mesmerizing.
Located on the Conestogo River just outside of St. Jacobs Ontario, this damn forms the head of the mill race that used to bring water power to the flour mill. The cold weather and snow has frozen the river up stream and with the recent warm temperatures and rain the falls are putting on a nice display.
Couldn’t resist the pun! This was taken near the Templin Gardens in Fergus.
