I am working near Danville, Virginia over the weekend, and this afternoon I had an opportunity to spend some time walking the awesome river walk along the Dan River. There is an old, abandoned cotton mill in Danville, and with the cloudy sky, just made it look even more decrepit.
This image is from the mouth of the Slims River, which feeds Kluane Lake, the largest lake in the Yukon. Since there has not been much rainfall lately there is little water and when the wind picks up, it creates these awesome sandstorms that are great to photograph, but nasty on camera equipment.
Happy Canada Day! Canada is 148 years young today and as beautiful as ever! As a nation we have a lot to be proud of in this country. As hard as our politicians try to destroy this amazing country, everyday Canadians pick up the pieces and rebuild it. I have been fortunate to visit every province but 1 and one of the 3 territories. The Yukon is on my list in 2016! I have also been fortunate to visit many beautiful places around the world, but every time I return to Canada, I say to myself “Canada is still my favourite country in the world!”
Here are some of my favourite images from across Canada!
(BTW…I am behind a couple of days on my LTTL project and I will catch up)
Today I taught my Digital Photography For Beginners course and I had an awesome group of people! They had a lot of fun and took some great images! For the field section of the day we ventured out on a rather chilly afternoon to Tiffany Falls just outside of Ancaster. It is a beautiful waterfall and has lots of potential to create great images.
I had a very busy day today and as such did not get a chance to get my image of the day. So I am using one from the other evening that I was down at the St. Lawrence River in Montreal. It was such a pretty evening and the only day it did not rain in Montreal.

This evening I went for a drive as I was looking for somewhere to capture sunset. I love to go exploring in areas that I am not familiar with. It is always a challenge, and more often than not, rewarding in some way or another. Tonight was no different. I found a way to cross the highway and a small path down to the rivers edge here in Boucherville, Quebec. I waited patiently for sunset and Mother Nature rewarded me for my curiosity. Beautiful!
