Parks

It’s been quite some time since my last blog entry.  The truth is, I’ve been enjoying the summer weather so much that being outside has been my first and frankly only thought.  Now that the seasons have changed, and the temperature has dropped it’s time to be indoors more.  Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been up to in the last couple of months.

In mid October I took a couple of trips to Ontario Provincial Parks.  The first was for two nights in a yurt at the Pinery on Lake Huron.  Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate with me.  If it wasn’t raining it was cloudy for the entire time.  It will be destination to repeat as there were trails and a beach that I simply must photograph and paint.  I was pleased that at least it didn’t rain in the evenings and I could still enjoy my campfires.

The second week I had much clearer skies for the trip to Algonquin Park.  Even though the leaves had for the most part changed colour and fallen, there was still a fair abundance left on the branches.  There will be more trips there as I had only three nights and not nearly enough time to accomplish much.  I did take almost five hundred pictures, the majority of which will be stitched together into panoramas.  Over the winter months many of the shots I took can be used for paintings in the studio.

Both the Pinery and the Mew Lake campgrounds are open year-round.  This winter I’m hoping to make short trips to each for some winter photography.  They both feature heated yurts after all.
