We stopped at Inglis Falls today on the way into Owen Sound, and got some pictures of the falls tumbling down between the ice. It was a beautiful winter scene and a really interesting view of the falls, but I'm actually disappointed in the pictures.
The trail to the popular viewpoints lower down was closed, as it usually is in the winter, so I took shots from the viewing platform where you see the falls through the trees.
Inglis Falls starts in the peaceful mill pond on the Sydenham River upstream.
It flows over a small old mill dam that used to power a gristmill.
And abruptly thunders off the cliff toward downtown Owen Sound.
The trees in the valley below were covered in frosty ice from the spray.
This is the best view I could get that shows the whole falls. Lower viewpoints show you a more open view, but today we stuck to this.
This picture shows the poor focus I'm concerned about. With my poor vision these days I'm totally dependent on the Auto-focus, but it's been acting up recently. Sometimes it doesn't focus at all and just locks up, but here I could hear the beep that suggested it was focussing properly.
This distant view over the valley does look in focus, and was very pretty today with the snow-covered trees.
It is gorgeous in the winter!ReplyDelete
Well, they still give us an idea of what a beautiful place that is! That water sure looks cold!ReplyDelete
They are all fine, and that frozen water and spray, what a scene. Our family at Kamloops tell me it is minus 6, and will be minus 17C on Wednesday night!!! Hope you are a bit less cold ( I cannot really say warmer ) than that.ReplyDelete
The snow melting will give that stream a lot more water. It is a very beautiful area and the snow laden trees are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful world! Love seeing these!ReplyDelete
I think these are pretty good pictures, but not up to the standards you have set for yourself. I would have been thrilled with them, myself. :-)ReplyDelete
Hello, a beautiful winter wonderland. Love the frozen falls and the river view. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!ReplyDelete

Nothing like frozen waterfalls in the winter!ReplyDelete
So pretty. Looks so cold too!!ReplyDelete
Ah....the beauty of nature!ReplyDelete
Beautiful scenes that looked perfectly in focus to me.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos they look in focus to me , looks so pretty to. Sometimes the cold and or damp air can do that to the lenses and the cameras and it is hard for cameras to focus a white on white background sometimes which I am sure you know if there isn't enough contrast for the focus to pick up on or the type of light . My camera is always on manual but my lenses on auto focus cause I take a lot of motion photos and need the fast speed of its focusing to get my shots and yes the damp cold air has caused it to play up at times in the winters . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !ReplyDelete
