Single Shot Monday: Sideways Trunk…

Last week, I zipped around Lake Ontario to visit writer friend, Keziah Fenton. We were meeting at one of her favorite haunts at Niagara Falls — Dufferin Islands. Let’s just say I can’t believe I lived in the Niagara Region for 11 years, and did not know about Dufferin Islands. Mostly, I ran up and down the Niagara Parkway. Anything that was on the Niagara Parkway — and there was a lot, including the falls — was thoroughly traveled. The rest of Niagara Falls, not so much.

Clearly that was an oversight on my part.

Dufferin Islands will be visited again and again.

I didn’t get a lot of clicks this time, as the conversation was flowing hot and heavy between us. The G-Man was sent out to shoot as much as he could. I’ll be sharing some of his shots here later. Thank you, Mr. G.

This image has a subtle beauty. What caught my eye was the crop of yellow-green branches growing out of the sideways trunk. The water is actually moving and the bright, little, red leaves are rushing along.

Do not go to Niagara Falls without visiting Dufferin Islands. The end.

Hover and click.

Autumn is in full swing here. I’m trying to drink in as much of it as I can.

And Monday rushes in sideways.


Close Shot Friday 073

Hover and click, baby.

Hover and click.

I can’t emphasize that enough.

It’s all about pops of color this week.

I had to wade into this tree to get this shot.

Autumn is in full swing in my neck of Canadaland. And in a few other necks, too.

I am totally blissed-out on autumn.

Are you blissed-out on autumn, too?

This week is a rush.

A rush and a crush.

It’s cuh-razy, man.


TGIF, baby.

You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1…

I am so ready.


I’m Stuck At P Is For Pumpkin…

I can’t get enough of these babies.

‘Tis the season.

I am neck deep in Scrivener II — advanced Scrivener — this week.

This be a blog quickie.

Hover and click.

You know you want to.

Let’s just eat pie for Hump Day.

Pie cures everything.

Pumpkin Pie.

With whipped cream.

I have a thing about whipped cream since visiting the Land of Lincoln.

Don’t ask.
