Changing Courtice

Monarchs, near the lake down Courtice Road
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.




Containers can be as long as 14.6 m weighing over 30,000 kg -




Later, the view from the Courtice Road Railway bridge offered a surprise opportunity - One train was waiting  as another passed by:

Here is a view of downtown Toronto from Trulls road, over 55 km away! The evening air is now very clear together with dramatic, contrasty fall skies which to me are photographic candy:











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