Muskoka Photos

I’ve uploaded some photos from my recent trip to the Muskoka region to my albums section. This album is available for anyone to view, so there’s no password protection on it (friends can email me for the username/password to the private albums section).

I took 122 photos on this trip, but I’ve only included 18 of them in this album. The others are excluded mainly because they feature much of the same subject matter as these 18, but are not as well composed or were taken with different settings. There are of course a fair few that suffered from focus or camera shake issues (my A20 doesn’t do to well in low light conditions).

Back from the north

I’m back from our trip up to the Muskoka region of Ontario. I’d never been into “Cottage Country” before, but now that I’ve been I can understand why everyone here in Toronto buys a property up there.

Yes there are mosquitoes, and I’m sure it’s cold in winter, but during the summer you can own a property on or near a lake, surrounded by forest, and with amazing views.

We were only there for a few days, but I got in rowing, canoeing, time in a hot tub, hiking, burning wood, and playing Settlers of Catan.

Catching up on email will have to wait until tomorrow (or rather the morning).
