Muskoka-Algonquin Fall 2015 iPhone Shots

Just some quick shots from last weekend on my iPhone, yes that's moose in the bottom shot and there's more to come with them on a later post. Friday morning I went up to to Huckleberry Lookout between Bracebridge and Port Carling to meet  up with my friend Helen Grose  , she lives most of the week up in Muskoka and knows the neighbourhood cold. She suggested for the gang to meet up at Huckleberry Lookout as a spot to shoot some landscapes, something different. I was challenged at first, more so with the light, it was supposed to be partly cloudy but instead we got mostly cloud with the rare patch of blue. Later on I cut across along highway 117 through Baysville stopping by at the Lake of Bays Brewery (sorry no photos), they make fine beer and along that highway I got shots of the Lake of Bays which then took me through Dorset. I was happy to arrive at Billie Bear resort, to me that's paradise, the weekend saw a return to the Bat Lake Trail this time in the morning

Back to Muskoka and Algonquin Park This Weekend

Early tomorrow morning I'm headed back north to paradise for a long weekend of photography, a good hike in Algonquin Park and hang out with good friends. The fall colours report for Algonquin Park says it's still about 50% green still. That's ok, there are still great photos to be taken. Get out to nature and enjoy it, colours aside I think it's going to be great fall. See you next week.

A Day Up in Elora Part One

Getting closer to the end of the Summer as people usually see it and I needed another day trip, my original plans for Prince Edward County got cancelled due to a friend's family health emergency so I pointed my car Northwest back to Elora instead of East along the 401. Elora is a culinary hotspot deep in Wellington County roughly 20 minutes north of Guelph. Now if you are looking for a nice place to eat, I can recommend the Shepherd's Pub or Wreckless Eric' s both are a great place for lunch and I can't recommend the Maclean's Pale Ale enough. I will recommend taking the Elora Culinary Walking Tour  , think of it as a tasting menu for the town. Sadly the Elora Mill Inn is still closed for renovations, the new owners seem to be distracted with other ventures as a result the village is quieter than it should be. I stayed there 15 years ago with my girlfriend at the time on a long weekend package and enjoyed myself. There are other places to stay through a quick s
