I was able to make it to the Oxtongue River again this year, just outside of Algonquin Park. Although I was maybe a week too early for prime autumn colours, there was enough colour around to make me happy. The advantage of being a week early is that I was the only photographer there! I had the whole place to myself. The water was lower this year and I was able to get into the middle of the river and get some great shots. Someone had made Inukshuks on the rocks and I was able to get in close with a wide angle lens.
I know someone who was there 2 weeks after me and he had to fight for a spot along the bank and some of the photographers were quite frustrated with the Inukshuks. Somewhat understandable as they would not be able get out there for a good composition as they would be in everyone else's pictures (and would also risk having rocks thrown at them for being in their pictures!!!).
Since I was able to get out there, I was able to make them the main subject and had them work for me. Here are a couple images. The first one is with a wide angle lens that I borrowed to try out. It was the Sigma 10-22mm/f4 and I fell in love with it. I am quite happy with the result:
And one final image to share....this is a view up river from where I was standing near the Inukshuks. Basically, turned 180 degrees.
