I am an amateur photographer since 2020 when I joined the Iphone Photography School online courses as an outlet from the intensity of working in healthcare during the beginning of the Pandemic; now photography is my passion.

The silence of freshly fallen snow and winter sun provides a beautiful meditative experience of aloneness but not loneliness.

Ice formation on the end of the pier formed by wind and waves on Lake Ontario.

I was fascinated by these ‘bubbles’ of ice at the base of the grasses growing in the pond…

Walking the streets of Toronto, Canada, I turned the corner and this was the sight. The light captured the older building in a way that framed the famous CN tower and this scene was framed by the tall modern buildings on either side of the street. A “Frame within a Frame”.

Another view from a hotel room at the crossroads of a busy junction provided symmetry and movement that became mesmerizing

In December, we saw some beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The setting sun on the lake produced an orange glow that reflected beyond the sky into the water that was partly frozen and I felt at peace in this moment.

The city of Toronto morphs into a city of lights at night, buildings merge with each other, yet there is humanity living and working within them, providing a uniqueness to each glistening window frame. I wanted to capture the individuality within the masses.

The halls of this hotel provided perfect symmetry with its mirrors and lights and repeating architectural design.

The perfect alignment of the bar chairs provided a leading line to the ray of light from the windows. The barman posed silently yet with confidence and ownership of his pristine workplace. This scene captured a moment in time that was fleeting but memorable as the television commentator memorialized the Late Henry Kissinger.

I call this photo “Carpet of Gingko” in late fall and after a cold snap, the leaves dropped overnight from the trees causing a golden carpet of subtle colour and texture.

After the storm, the clouds literally rolled by with dramatic force and the heavy rains at dusk created interesting reflections of the urban house lights.

After strong fall winds, the colours of the maple leaves packed against the school fence called for a “go low” perspective.

This local park is an oasis of calm at anytime of year but the Canadian maple trees reflected in the pond made it spectacular...

The rushing waters and rock face of the Canadian Shield at Burleigh Falls are the quintessential back drop for the paintings of the Group Of Seven. Adding to this, the colours of Fall completes the magnificence.

The winding path through Rotary Park in Cobourg, Ontario leads the eye to the marina. The magnificent Canadian Red Maple trees were at their peak beauty.

Wicklow Beach, Ontario. A stormy sky was the back drop that emphasized the azure blue colour of Lake Ontario as my friend walked out to the end of the breakwater making this a perfect photo op.

My husband and I took a country drive through the Northumberland Hills, Ontario and I gasped as we ascended the road through the forest. Stopping in the middle of the road, I was able to capture the rays of the autumn sun through the branches.

After the summer rain, I went out to capture the drops and this turned out to be my favourite macro shot.

Here in Ontario, Canada, we have had an extended summer throughout September allowing our giant Hibiscus to squeeze out its last flowers of the season.

73rd Collection

Sidney, British Columbia, is a beautiful small town on Vancouver Island, Canada. This is the iconic fish Market where the fresh fish of the day is sold but you have to be early as they sell out every day! I took this photo early in the morning with long exposure.
