1. Day 184: After a great weekend up north, today was the all about the drive home. I took Hwy. 69 south from Sudbury, which has quite a few abandoned properties along it’s length between Parry Sound and Sudbury. Gas stations, motels, and even a missile base. I stopped for a few, including this gas station, just north of Britt. To get an idea of just how long this has been closed, besides the obvious age of the pump itself, a nearby sign had the price of gas at 70 cents a litre.

  2. Day 143: I spent the better part of today on the road, with the intent of finding a few caches along Algonquin Park’s southern Highway 60 corridor. Of course I dragged my camera along for every hike, and got lots of photos, but chose one of the last images of the day. I stopped at Brewer Lake, near the park’s east gate, and watched the sun go down, before heading to Whitney for the night.

  3. Day 140: I enjoyed a 30km hike along the Beaver Valley section of the Bruce Trail today, and took a few photos of trilliums, which literally carpet some areas. I’ve taken so many shots of these over the years, so I was looking for something a little different, and spotted a single flower nestled among the roots of a tree. Hidden in the shadows in such a way, the trillium was illuminated by a small patch of light form the early evening sun.

  4. Day 129: I shot today’s photo in the backyard garden of a customer’s house, in the middle of the city. I’m sure these are trilliums, which I’ve never seen outside of their natural habitat, so was quite surprised to see them carefully cultivated and in the garden among other flowers.

  5. Day 70: Enjoyed my first day out with my new camera, and spent the afternoon walking Leslie Spit. On more than a few shots, I realized my old XTi could have never been able to get the same shot. A great example is todays shot. There’s no way I could have got that from my old camera. The 50d has a much faster shutter speed, and the AF is considerably faster and more accurate. I’m really enjoying the upgrade so far….

  6. Northern Lights:
Day 4: 4:30am.
Quinn and I were nightcaching our way home from Decew  Falls, and this spot marks the last of 53 caches found during our 6th anniversary cache run.
Looking north, the glow from the GTA on  the horizon spans from the Skyway Bridge on the left almost all the way  to Toronto.
