The fall is a favourite time for good light and colour and September has already been full of surprises. The country-side is starting to change rapidly as the temperatures fall and clearer air has arrived. All the images, except the Monarch butterfly's were taken with a point-and-shoot, Canon G12, while biking the roads around Courtice. I continue to be amazed at the variety of opportunities for photography within 5 km of my home - walking or biking give you more time to discover your surroundings and enjoy the scenery than you might see from a car.
Living in this area trains are a constant part of daily life and this gentleman said he came down every day to film the trains. He listens to the train engineers on a WT. Trains are a tough shoot as the most times they don't stand still but here they move slowly.

Well the landscape is already starting to look very different - but the colour is yet to come.
