Rideau Reflections

A back channel on the Rideau river, almost overflowing with spring meltwater

bare branches overhead, almost bursting with budding leaves

swirling, artistic impressions almost dancing on the water’s surface.

Meltwater

All that melting snow has to go somewhere! This babbling creek was a surprise discovery on a trail this weekend. I’m hoping to go back throughout the year and watch as the creek evolves with the changing seasons.

In the meantime, let’s all be mesmerized by the reflection. *oooh, aaah*

Seduction

Had a date with the ocean last week. My husband of 10 years (the real reason for the trip) didn’t mind that I was two-timing him, he understands the seduction that was involved.
More to come…

Jack Pine Trail 4

Straight as an arrow above, with signs of wavering below – it’s like the face we put on each day as we go out to meet the world.

Jack Pine Trail 2

Raindrops and reflections transforms the pond surface into colliding concentric circles.

Hideout

The day was muggy, buggy and drizzly, but with restless kids, that didn’t stop us from getting on our bikes and heading out for a quick geocaching misssion.

After a quick snack at a saskatoon bush, our last cache had us arriving at the river’s edge, with still water, a flat white light, and some overhanging branches creating the perfect little hideout.

Tall Ships 4

In case you thought I was crazy, I know this isn’t a picture of a tall ship.

However this water was lapping at the base of a tall ship, thus by association, I think it counts.

And besides, this is my blog, and I have ultimate power (bwahahaha!).

Cat nap

It’s been a busy week. I’m envious of this mallard drake’s ability to catch a cat nap on a sunny rock. I wish!

Here’s hoping for a¬† good night’s sleep to prepare for the craziness of a 4-yr old’s birthday party – wish me luck tomorrow, I’ll need it.

G’night!

Inspiration: Eddie Soloway

Unfocused forests, blurry water scenes, surreal sunsets.

I used to love seeing documentary nature shots, true to reality, showing the width and breadth and diversity of the natural world. But now I am so much more inspired by an abstract take on the world, where physicality is reduced to colour, shapes, lines and movement.

Eddie Soloway’s images are where I want my photography to be. ‘Nuf said.

Sparkles

…and then the sun came out onto the frozen world. I had to put on my sunglasses, there were too many sparkles¬† – wait – I don’t think that’s even possible.
