The Grotto in Bruce Peninsula National Park and Stand up Paddlers in Tobermory

The Grotto in Bruce Peninsula National Park

It's the busiest time of year for me - June is that magical month that keeps me close to home, yet pulls me in so many directions. On any given day I could be shooting birds, wildflowers, landscapes with lush green forests or outdoor recreation photos. I have been avoiding my computer and the blog for a while, so thought I should post a couple favorite images from the past week.

The top photo is the famous Grotto cave near Cyprus Lake in Bruce Peninsula National Park. At this time of year, the sun angle perfectly illuminates the Grotto at dusk.

The bottom photo is of my friends stand-up-paddling on a beautifully calm morning on Georgian Bay. We set the photo up to have the iconic Big Tub Lighthouse as a backdrop. I shot this from my small motor boat. To get a high enough angle so their heads wouldn't be merging with the distant shoreline, I got up as high as I could standing on the bow of the boat.

Happy shooting!
