During April through June I’m working on 2 projects. 1. Creating an Album of Photographs on Old Growth Forests near the Humber River. 2. Shooting additional photographs for my project on the Niagara Escarpment which I hope to present on this Website during the winter of 2019/20.
I went to the Orchid Festival at Tobermory the first week of June to photograph the Lady Slippers, while I only saw 2 in bloom it was a great time to be on this part of the Escarpment before the main tourist season begins.
JUNE -- Orchid Festival, Tobermory, Bruce Peninsula, Singing Sands, Ontario June 2019. This is part of my Niagara Escarpment Project which I'll continue working on this Fall and Winter. Due to a cooler Spring then usual there were few Orchids in bloom this year but I was able to photograph a number of spring flowers which I have never seen before and some are unique to this area. I will be adding these flowers to the Plant Album in the Galleries heading of the site. -- FF, 28mm, ISO 200, f11, 1/200

The photographs were taken in early April at a privately owned property bordering on the Humber River. While it is not officially designated as such this forest has all the attributes of an "Old Growth Forest". Over the next several months I will be photographing three forests that I'll combine into an album of Old Growth Forests adjacent to the Humber River. --
