Week Six

nature

I was at our neighbours cottage in the Quebec Laurentian’s over the weekend.  We had a wonderful time cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, eating scrumptious food and relaxing with special friends.  Greg took me for a snowshoeing trek in the back country – it was spectacular!!!

I only had an ancient Sony point-and-shoot camera with me because I didn’t want to damage my DSLR.

Week 6

 

Paw Pixs

nature, Pets, this and that

I’ve decided to change the name of my blog now that I’ve completed my 365 project.  I’ve noticed that most of my photos are of my pets or random dogs that I’ve met.  The name Paw Pixs represents the type of pictures I enjoy taking.  I’ll still take photos of other things that interest me but I just can’t resist pulling out the camera when I see a cute, furry face.

Stella had a wonderful time running through the dry grasses.

John and I checked out a new mountain biking park – Carrick Tract. It’s near Walkerton, Ontario. I found the trails challenging with lots of tight turns, steep ravines, and quick elevation changes.

On the way back to the cottage I took a pile of iPhone pictures of the beautiful farm fields. This area of Ontario has some stunning, healthy looking farms. For an outsider, who’s a city dweller, this area does not seem to be suffering the downward plight of the family farm. Most properties look well kept and tidy with nice trucks and farming equipment and healthy looking livestock.
