CASCADES: ROCK OF AGES.
When I walk out to Thunder Bay’s Cascades Conservation Area, I’m taken by the millions of years of story under my hiking shoes. The complex geological rock formations speak to a chapter of history in every direction.
To my senses, it’s the Disneyland of shape, colour, texture, sound, movement, and story. It’s really a magical paradise, not of Walt’s design, but of Mother Nature.
It’s simply beautiful.
In this rather stark rock formation photograph, multiple hues of brown are everywhere. If you look closely you’ll witness erosion, rock depression, water, life, time and different types of rock. In upcoming photographs I’ll share a multitude of colour.
Three hours of shooting feels like three minutes… until I realize I’m fatigued and thirsty from photographing in the afternoon summer sun.
Part of the Canadian Shield, Cascades is but a sliver of the 8 million square km (3 million square miles) of rock spread over eastern, central, and northwestern Canada into the U.S.A.
