The Gallery – Nature

This, for me, is probably the hardest Gallery theme to date.  Almost all the 500 plus photos here on my blog are of the nature here in Canada.  It is so different from what we had in our little corner of Essex that discovering new landscapes and new creatures has been one of the most enjoyable part of emigrating.

In a country of over 3 million lakes I think I can be forgiven for posting lots of pictures involving lakes usually surrounded by pines trees.  Lakes at sunset, lakes in winter, lakes and beaches in the summer or lakes in the autumn… for me the views never get old!  But, just in case, anyone reading this has had enough of my views I decided to rake through my collection to find something I’ve never posted before and then I was struck with inspiration.

I am lucky enough to live in a great area and when hubbie picked our house  he chose one built on a slope with a river and tall trees at the end of the garden.  My deck, which is off the kitchen, is actually one storey above the ground which means it is right in the middle of the trees and the local wildlife treat my garden and deck as a part of their habitat giving us some fantastic opportunities for spotting wildlife so here is a selection of the nature literally ‘in my backyard’

  1. Wow….I love these pics….Do you love animals as much as I do because I think they are the most important and amazing things on earth after my friends, parents and close relatives of course. I love the squirrel and the chipmunk. I wish I could have been there to see them in real life with you….I can’t find the words to describe how amazing the pictures are!

  2. I am totally blown away by your photos! I always love your lake side views but even so I was totally amazed but quite how emerged in nature you are. Lucky you!

  3. The chipmunk is my favourite! It has a really good expression on its face!

    I love that there is so much wildlife here too – I have mostly seen birds and have yet to get a picture as by the time I have spotted one and got my camera ready, they have gone!
