Dip at dusk

For a few weeks in the spring, we are treated to visits by ducks, who take a liking to the water that accumulates in fields and lawns.

Big break

Ice heaves and breaks on the Ottawa River between Hawkesbury and Grenville. Unfortunately, the spring runoff also reveals some more unpleasant sights, such as the litter in the foreground.

April sunset

Hard to believe that only a few days ago we were surrounded by snow and ice. But it now seems that the sun has set on another long winter....

Eating on the road

We are lucky to often see deer, in their natural habitat. In eastern Ontario and western Qu├ębec, the cute creatures have grown accustomed to grazing in fields, and occasionally on anything that crops up beside laneways.

A true optimist

A few weeks ago, while shooting a house fire, I spotted this car covered in snow, with a For Sale sign on it. The vendor, a true optimist, obviously had offered the vehicle for sale long before the heavy snowfalls. And now, spring is arriving, and with it, no doubt, an emerging vehicle and the hopes of a quick sale.
