GOOSE LINE-UP (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

We missed the arrival of newly hatched chicks this year; there seemed to be fewer young and we weren’t around to see them when they hatched. So it was nice to come across this young family enjoying the cool water on a very hot day. The young still swim in tight formation at this stage but they’re old enough to no longer need a minder bringing up the rear.

CITYSCAPE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Walking by this exterior wall I thought at first that someone had decided not to finish up the plastering. On giving it a second look I saw a skyline emerging from the surface. I’ll have to return to photograph the rest of the wall as the story continues along the brick. A hidden gem in an older part of town.

IMPRESSION (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

This photo was taken on a windy day, and gives the impression that there were fields of chives growing and not just the small patch I saw in the garden. This tasty plant produces such an attractive flower.

ANOTHER VIEW (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

There’s something very appealing about these back porches. You get a feel for the people who live in these houses, from the flowers to the statuary to the pet’s water bowl. They reveal more about their occupants than the street view implies.

LAZY RIVER (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

A few of my recent posts have had river based themes. As I walked by this scene what first caught my eye were the fungi on the fallen log. I had just seen some mushrooms further up the trail and I guess I was on the lookout. But taking in the surroundings, I was again struck by the stillness and the serenity of the scene, so very appealing.

MORE QUEBEC SCENES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

The water is still high along the river. The winter thaw and runoff is a constant in Spring. This part of the province isn’t too badly effected this year although parts of the country are having a very hard time of it. This is about as close as we get to “swamp-like” conditions and like the other images from Hudson, Quebec I featured last week, I was struck by the tranquility of the scene.

QUEBEC SCENES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

These photographs were taken on the banks of the Ottawa River in Hudson, Quebec. We had stopped for lunch and took a short walk along the shoreline. I was struck by the quiet and stillness of the park and the dappled light, a place I will have to visit again.
