My husband and I visited Niagara Falls in September, 2010. This photo was taken from the closest point one can stand at the Journey Behind the Falls attraction in Niagara, Ontario, Canada. It was tremendous! The roar, the mist, the sight of millions of gallons of water spilling over that edge where you can almost reach out and touch the flow.

We have been camping in this park all summer. Its a bitter sweet moment when the fall comes in Canada. Campers are few and the weather is turning cool at night. The true beauty to look forward too, is the changing colors of the trees.

I took this picture one overcast day in Port Elgin, Ontario in July. The sailboats in the distance seem to be in flight in the sky.


If you look closely, the water meets the sky with a perfectly blended colors.

We took our summer vacation this year in Spanish, Ontario, Canada. I got a new camera for my birthday so I figured I needed to figure it out. I think I got pretty lucky on this shot.

I don't think I have ever been to a more peaceful place ever. While fishing in Ontario, Canada this year, I spotted this lonely flower in the lily pads.

I took this photo of the beautiful scenic dam in Mildmay, Ontario, Canada last Fall. It was one of those wonderful October Fall days when the weather was perfect for me to take advantage of my love for photography.

This was taken near Sault St. Marie on Canada Day, July 1, 2017. The location was at the entrance of a nature park leading to a hiking trail. The mixture of the purple flowers with the wheat colored flowers and the trees in the background and a peak of the blue sky, gave a variety of interest to the photo.

This park is a nice place to sit and relax. There are quite a few trees that provide shade and many benches to sit on. The kids can play at the playground provided, while you sit and read a book.


The town hosts many celebrations in the park over the summer months. A band plays every Thursday in the gazebo.

This park is where they hold some of the festivals they have every summer. This was once the site of Jones Shovel Company, until the 1960's. The Chamber of Commerce developed the park in 1967. Over the years, they have added walks, lighting, and ponds.

This picture was taken at Joel Stone Beach, where we spend most of the summer days. It is nice scenery, with boats coming through all day long. Joel Stone Beach is located along the St.


Lawrence River. You can even see some of the islands from there. There is also a splash pad for younger kids.

This picture was taken at my work in Ontario Canada. Fall is such a pretty time of year with the changing colours. I can not identify the bush, but thought you would like to see one of my favorite photos.

That is truly gorgeous! I was fortunate enough to be in New England and part of Canada during the Fall of the year a few years ago and experienced all the beautiful colors you have there - absolutely stunning! I live in South Georgia where we have only two seasons - hot and hotter! Thanks for sharing and God bless you. (05/06/2008)
