“To the complaint, ‘There are no people in these photographs,’ I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.”
― Ansel Adams
A day to pull back the camera from the very close and focus on some mid-range landscape work. The image above was made while having dinner with my wife after a day of transporting new photos to a gallery I am showing at, in the town of Bancroft Ontario. I also dropped some work off in a gallery of a friend of mine in Maynooth, just a bit north of Bancroft.
Bancroft and the surrounding area has been my summer haunt for a few years now. I have fallen in love with the raw beauty of this region and have begun to form friendships in it’s thriving artist community.
As autumn begins, a slight hint of colour is starting to show, but there is something magical about the light in the Hastings Highlands and its numerous lakes.
This day started off with a mix of rain and mists, which gradually cleared, making way for beautiful, soft sunlight and a mix of stray clouds, and the odd thunderstorm, depending on where you were.
I could not resist this view, which we enjoyed while dining and preparing for the last leg of the drive home. We truly live in a beautiful place, which I am pleased to capture through photos and share with others.
