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.
