Elliot Lake, ON

The winds have shifted and the first few flurries of snow arrived in Elliot Lake last week.  The intense heat of the summer sun has retreated to a gentle warmth that struggles against the faintest breeze.

Nights are cold now. The heat of the day leaking out into space and not replaced.

Winter is definitely in the air.  A dark and quiet calm has descended onto the landscape and you can hear the sound of the wind in open trees.

When we start out, we never really know where we’re going. We follow the sounds, the smells and the things that touch our hearts and lead our souls.

It often occurs to me that taking a good photograph is not necessarily hidden in the subject matter as much as it is what the photographer brings to it.

Blending a lifetime of experiences and inspiration together to bear on a single moment of understanding and expression is a wonderful experience and even more satisfying when it can be shared.

I will be away until next wee and am sharing some of the joy and celebration that has gone into my understanding of the world.

It often occurs to me that taking a good photograph is not necessarily hidden in the subject matter as much as it is what the photographer brings to it.

Blending a lifetime of experiences and inspiration together to bear on a single moment of understanding and expression is a wonderful experience and even more satisfying when it can be shared.

I will be away for the next couple of weeks (until November) and have decided to share some of the joy and celebration that has gone into my understanding of the world.

Through the years music has probably played a larger role in my life than any other factor. Looking back I know it informs me as much as anything I see and it’s my intention to share one piece per post until I return.
