More Port Dalhousie
I have this thing about sunsets down by the harbour in Port. You would think that the view would have lost its magic after living more than fifty years down here on the coast. I've included a nice photo of a daytime sail on Mother's Day and one of a 'salty' battling the gales of April 28, 2011 straight out from the piers. The waves and wind were awesome!
Fall photos from Niagara Region
The fall foliage wasn't as brilliant this year but it has improved slightly in late October and Early November.
I've been visiting Kipawa for about 30 years. Still a great deal of wilderness though there has been some encroachment by tourists and squatters over the years. Still, there are very few camps and few private cottages on this Lake that has about 1500km of shoreline. This year I was lucky enough to get pictures of a bald eagle near Alwaki Lodge which is in the central part of the Kipawa Lake watershed. Legend has it that if you go there even just once, its beauty and majesty will you draw you back and haunt you forever, beckoning you to return as often as you can. The Kipawa region is a photographers paradise with abundant wildlife and spectacular scenery. If you ever have the opportunity to go, don't let it slip away.
Here's a few photos from around Niagara that you might find interesting. We are blessed to live in an area with two great lakes, Niagara Falls and the upper and lower NIagara River, the Niagara Escarpment which has a variety of wildlife, numerous creeks and streams, some with their own beautiful waterfalls as they cascade over the Escarpment, a thriving arts community, a wine route through the area, fine dining ... and the list goes on.
Letchworth State Park, New York State
This park featuring the Genesee River Valley is spectacular and is about an hour or so south east of Buffalo near Portageville, New York. In my opinion, this park with its 3 falls, rapids, deep gorge and beautiful forest, outshines Niagara Falls for its beauty in all seasons. It is worth a visit and I know you won't be disappointed.
