Natural landscapes: Autumn on the forest floor


Fall in southern Ontario is generally best a few hours north of Toronto, in the Muskoka/Haliburton cottaging mecca. That said, a diligent photographer can certainly find stunning autumn hues not far from the province’s capital city. Ajax is just a half hour east of Toronto and this conservation area is a favourite area for my wife & I to walk and pray when we’re in the area.
On this day, I was glorying in the forest hues and started wandering around, staring at the leaf-covered forest floor, looking for suitable compositions. This overturned leaf grabbed my attention and I used my old Nikon D50, tripod and polarizing filter to make the picture.
