In the thick off it – A thicket: A Photo Safari in 2022

In the dog days of August, one hopes for a reprieve from the noon-day heat in the shade of trees.

My wife and I had been talking about taking a walk in the waterfront park on Ile-Bizard (Parc-nature du Bois-de-L'Ile-Bizard) for many. years now and we just couldn't find the time to get there when it was open. On this particularly humid, cloudy (damp, really), and buggy July afternoon, we ventured out to see what … Continue reading Hints of Color and Light – A Photo Safari in 2022
