Driving home from our visit to Indian Falls two weeks ago, we took a few moments to stop at one of our favourite spots, Inglis Falls. It's easy to get to, and a very popular conservation area. We only walked 100 yards to get these pictures.
There was lots of water flowing down the river and over the falls after all the fall rain we've had, so it looked like much more water than rock!
A closer view - the classic view of the falls. Now that we can drop in here so easily I'm getting used to seeing the falls in all its moods, from summer trickle to winter ice-covered. Spring is the big peak flow, but later fall is definitely a secondary peak.
As always we admire the twisted roots of the Eastern White Cedar trees as we follow the trail along the edge of the cliff to get our pictures.
It's amazing how these trees can anchore themselves directly on the rock, the roots finding tiny crevices for nutrients and strength.
It was later afternoon, and I had no tripod, but I tried a few shots at slower speeds by holding the camera on top of the protective retaining wall, and was pleased with the results. Not nearly as good as the ones I got in May, but the more you try, the more you learn the idiosynchracies of light and speed on your camera.
I like these closer views of parts of the falls.
And I definitely like these 'slower' pictures of waterfalls compared to the usual ones.
We left to the sound of the Sydenham River plunging on down the gorge below the falls on its way through Owen Sound and down to Georgian Bay. Always a favourite stop.
