Canoe Views

 Paddlers out enjoying the autumn colours

Last Tuesday afternoon was a glorious day and many sightseers visiting Algonquin Provincial Park were out enjoying nature in rented canoes.

Meandering along the Opeongo River

The colour was considered past peak, but I thought it was still quite pretty.  (The leaves had just started to change where I live, a couple of hours south of the park.)

I love the canoe, lime green was my favorite color when I was a young girl. We did not seem to get any reds this fall, that happened the first year we lived here and that was a very wet summer, and this year we had a very wet spring.

see you there! said...

Especially like the read leaves and the pine. So colorful.

the pine nestled in the colors is magnifco... and i like the bright green canoe, they will not get lost in that one, even in fog..

Lowell said...

Fantastic colors...especially the canoe and the pine pic. I can almost feel cool breezes washing across the land as it prepares for the coming winter.

My favorite shot is the first one. It's so well-composed and such great colors and reflections!

Margaret Adamson said...

HI EG Fantastic shots with great reflections. Also that shot of Milkweed yesterday is stunning.

I'd be delighted with these beautiful Fall colors and would find it hard to believe they'd been every lovelier before. It's funny isn't it how a couple of hours can make so much difference.

I haven't canoed once this year. It saddens me. The Park was purportedly quite lovely. I made it to Huntsville, though. The colours were wonderful!
