A close up of one section of the same tree seen in various photographs throughout my work, I find this image appealingly whimsical.
A familiar sight along Highway 60, winding through Algonquin Park, Lake of Two Rivers always offers an impressive vista. Shot in the early morning after waiting nearly two hours for the fog to lift, the island and adjacent rocks suddenly appeared. I had to be quick, as the heat from the rising sun burned off the mist within a few minutes, leaving behind a beautiful (but slightly less dramatic) bright blue sky.
There is definitely no shortage of rivers and waterfalls in Lake Superior Provincial Park, as we learned during our first trip there in the summer of 2016. The power of moving water is truly amazing – as are the forces that oppose it. I’m drawn to the dizzying blur of motion in this image as it is juxtaposed with the static rock form.
