I’m switching from the Spring Projects and exploring new forests. I photographed a beautiful forest in New Brunswick but want to return later this summer to photograph an Old Growth Forest that I missed in my late June visit at Fundy National Park. I have a list of forests that I’m hoping to get to photograph over the coming months.
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.

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. --
