Travel Photo Contest – Andrew McLachlan
The Muskoka region of Ontario is famous for stunning fall colour. Autumn’s display of brilliantly coloured sugar maples draws people from near and far to witness the beauty of the season. The Muskokas is also known has cottage country in Ontario, due to the myriad of picturesque lakes. Numerous waterfalls and rivers can be found here too. I visited this location on the Rosseau River two days earlier, than the day I composed this photograph. I revisited this location due to heavy rainfall that was sure to increase the flow of the river. I was immediately drawn to the large rock in the center of the image, dividing the river, creating two cascades. While 2009 was a disappointing year for autumn colour, with many of the vibrant hues being muted, there was enough colour spread evenly across this river scene for a nice panoramic photograph. I shot a series of 8 vertical frames to create this panoramic at Lower Rosseau Falls, which is one of my favourite photographs from 2009.
