We headed into Owen Sound for physio yesterday, and I took along my Canon to see what photos I could capture. I was hoping to get some pix to show off our beautiful green spring landscape, but it's not as easy as you'd think. Still I can crop photos from the Canon whereas I can't the iphone shots, so it was worth trying. Here are the results - our countryside in late May.
One of the interesting old farms along the way. Every week I watch to see if that drive shed on the left has collapsed yet.
And a much more modern barn, built I think just to take advantage of the government's subsidies for solar panels. It's never been used much, except rented out perhaps for a few horses.
The meadow and forest behind the wetland has all turned green, but the marsh itself is still light brown.
And then we get to the rock cuts which serve as markers for our drive, and which I always enjoy, up over the escarpment and back down.
I'm not sure when the last plane landed on the small airport strip, perhaps last October or so. I don't know how it continues with virtually no business for 8 months a year.
There are a few cropped farm fields in areas where the soil is decent enough. This farmstead is a long way back in, and couldn't be seen until they bulldozed a couple of fencerows between here are there last year. No sign of spring crops germinating yet though.
I was dreading physio yesterday since we missed two months and I figured I was all stiffened up, but my physiotherapist was actually pleased so I'm encouraged. And I'm not really in any extra pain today either.
Love that sixth photo, FG. It just draws me in…ReplyDelete
pretty captures!! i was going to ask how therapy was going, i did not realize/remember that you had missed 2 months!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures. Glad to hear your appointment went well and you aren't sore. :)ReplyDelete
I too like those rock cuts. Reminds me of northern Ontario west of Dryden where we lived briefly back in the late 50's. Always good news to hear encouraging words from ones physiotherapist.ReplyDelete
Nice job with the Canon.ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that therapy went better than you expected. Spring has obviously arrived in your area.ReplyDelete
Good that the physio went well. You did a good job showing the landscape along your journey.ReplyDelete
I'm sure the Canon was happy to go for the ride too! Great photos showing our landscape. :)ReplyDelete

The rock cuts feel quite Canadian.ReplyDelete
