early winter photos – Tay Township


taken by me today using a Sony NEX F3 with 18-55 lens

100 miles north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, just south of Georgian Bay, the Sturgeon River

It is interesting to keep returning to the same spots through the four seasons.  Today I noticed that with all the foliage down, I could now see from a slightly different position a view of the Sturgeon River, little more than creek sized, that during the full grown season was invisible.  This section of the river was the water supply for a 17th century Huron village. A haunting spot.

Twilight Photos Tay Township Backroads


Tay Township 100 miles north of Toronto, Sony NEX F3 with Sony 18-55mm lens, edited using Corel Paint Shop Pro X5.

November light fading. temperature -1 degrees Celsius, dusting of snow lingering.

A few of these shots are within yards of a 17th century Huron village site.  It is debated whether it is the site of the martyrdom of St. Jean de Brebeuf, St. Gabriel Lalemant (French Jesuit missionaries) and many Christian Hurons at the hands of the warring Iroquois in 1649.  Whenever I stop and look and photograph these spots, my imagination turns back and I keep one eye out for those Iroquois.  This creek with the still water was most likely the water supply for that village.
