Fortune Lake in Gatineau Park, Quebec with a lone hiker on snowshoes. Actually it is yours truly carrying an extra kite (looking like a rifle). Kite line has been erased. The photograph was taken in 2009, but just recently added to the Getty Images catalogue.

Beaver Pond Reflections, Gatineau Park

Beaver Pond Reflections, Gatineau Park, Quebec.

Beaver Pond Reflections, Gatineau Park, Quebec.

There are a number of beaver ponds and swamps in Gatineau Park and interesting images abound if you are prepared for a hike and often some bushwhacking. The place I visited during this session I had discovered while hiking with a friend a few years ago. With the goal then being the hike, not the photography, I made a mental note of the location. Finally I returned this fall and the scenery was as rewarding as I had expected.

At this site there is a series of three ponds; however the top pond is more of a drained swamp. It seems this pond is not being maintained by the beavers unless park officials are directing/interfering with their developments. The bottom two ponds are smaller, relatively free of deadwood standing out of the ponds and closely lined with trees. The reflections as you can see are amazing.

WARNING: Beaver habitat can be dangerous. Do not be guilty of admiring the landscape and scenery without paying attention to your footwork. This is not to be taken lightly. Why? Although the typical image of beaver activity is large tree stumps and fallen tree trunks, for every large tree felled there are dozens of 1″ to 2″ diameter saplings chopped at about 18″ in length and chiseled to a fine point. The rest of the sapling has been hauled away and only the spike remains. Even in open terrain they are well enough camouflaged, but in typical beaver terrain where new trees, grasses and shrubs have grown over, these spikes are frequently hidden from view. You are likely to trip on one and impale your body or your face on the next. Why so morbid? Well I had a close call myself a couple of years ago. I now try to practice a policy of taking 30 or so steps with my eyes glued to the ground, stopping, and then looking around for appealing shots or where to go next.

West End Studio Tour 2011 Concludes

The past two weekends have had my home open to visitors as part of the West End Studio Tour 2011 (WEST). This was my second year in the tour which consists of 20 artists (2 photographers) in their various galleries, studios and home settings. Good traffic, good conversation, good leads and good sales. Consequently I hope to participate again in September 2012.

For anyone who missed the Tour and is interested to see what they missed in my portion of the show, the images that I had framed on display are shown in the West End Studio Tour 2011 gallery on my website.

Here is one of the popular images from the show which was also the one included in the WEST brochure and on display at the vernissage site at Wall Space Gallery.
