Inglis Falls, Ontario

Welcome to my first Travel Tuesday, a new weekly feature featuring photos from some of my travels.

In 1985 I spent part of the summer living in southern Ontario shooting stock photography for two photo agencies, one a general stock agency and one a specialist natural history agency.

This is the Inglis Falls, one of three waterfalls close to the city of Owen Sound. The Sydenham River is flowing over a section of the Niagara Escarpment.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Pick a Place

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Pick a Place.

Having moved around the U.K. and Canada over the decades I had quite a few ideas for the challenge. It was my recent One Word Sunday: Luck that made me think of the summer of 1985.

I spent part of that summer living in southern Ontario. All the photos are from that summer.

My contribution to the Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge Falling Water.

I was considering some of the birds and mammals I have photographed in the rain before deciding to go with a couple of shots of a nearby waterfall. Despite now living close to the waterfall these shots were taken in 1985 when I spent part of the summer in Ontario.
