Beautiful photos!! My favourites are landscapes. I particularly love the beauty of winter scenes. I love to paint scenery on canvases. I usually use acrylics. I am not a professional, and am totally self taught, learning by trial and error.
We were born and raised in Waterford / Simcoe area. My husband was born & raised in New Brunswick.

Discovered your website and beautiful photographs while visiting "The Weather Network" Gallery, specifically, your photo of "Lynn Valley Rail Trail." Having viewed photographs in all of your categories, I am particularly fond of "Landscapes," being also very fond of the landscapes in my hometown of Tobermory. I have appreciated the opportunity to view the results of your work. Thank you.
