FIRST FALL COLOURS


This morning I woke up seeing the first blaze of Fall colours in our garden and, like every year, I go through the ritual of photographing this yearly colour feast. It is actually amazing to see this magnificent riot of colour, which for me, as an immigrant to this country, is one of the defining Canadian symbols.

FINAL DAYS OF SUMMER

Summer is slowly merging into the Fall season. Walking through the old North bay neighbourhoods you start to notice the the first signs of colour in the trees but the gardens are still displaying are wide variety of flowers. Soon the gardeners will be busy getting everything ready for Winter.

UNION JACK, NORTH BAY, ONTARIO

I was surprised to see a Union Jack flying from the balcony of one of the old stately homes here in North Bay. Well it is of course a very historic day for the united Kingdom and whatever the outcome of the vote in Scotland it does spell the symbolic end of the British empire.

FORT HENRI, KINGSTON, ONTARIO

I agree with David Ernest I do like the square format. I loved using my old Rolleiflex and I am happy that the Rolleiflex is back in production.However the price is quite steep, you are looking at about C$10.000, so I don't think I will be buying a new TLR. This image I made at Fort Henri. Its a great site for making this type of architectural pictures.

END OF SUMMER LANDSCAPE

The weather, this Summer has certainly not been great. We had lots of rain and very little sunshine. But every year at the end of the season I love the magnificent riot of colours from the great variety of wild flowers. Of course it also means that Fall will bring its own palette of reds and yellows.
