Northern Ontario Weekend Escape
Rose Lake color tour stopRose Lake in far Northern Ontario is framed by fall colors and evergreens.
Sometimes you just have to get away from it all. East of Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario, up to a dozen friends gather each fall to hunt, fish, eat, and enjoy rare friendship. Of course I have a Nikon close at hand most all the time. On Monday a couple of us took a drive in a brand new Toyota Tacoma pickup and wandered of the beaten path a bit. Seeing a huge puddle across the road, we pondered and ultimately decided that it deserved a high speed crossing. I walked ahead and got into a low vantage point. Looking for f/4, I needed to bump up the ISO just a bit in order to get 1/2000 shutter speed. I wasn't sure just how big of a splash there would be, but I assumed it would look great. The headlights just happened to be on, and they really add to the dramatic look.
On Tuesday, a morning fishing trip in the fog slowly yielded some beautiful views as the fog burned off. I was taken with a little cabin alone on a small rocky island. The image without manipulation was quite nice but a couple of different treatments in Adobe Lightroom show some nice effects that make it suitable for print and framing.
Whenever a quick trip with new scenery comes to an end, it's a treat to review photos and to share them. They will serve to spark memories and to illustrate stories of adventures far from home for years to come.
