Natural landscapes: Autumn at Rock Lake


Algonquin Park is one of the undisputed natural and scenic gems in this Canadian province. It was a long three-hour drive from my home east of Toronto (Canada’s largest city), but I still made the drive a few times because I knew the effort would pay off. It certainly did on this autumn day.
Booth’s Rock Trail is a five-kilometre loop trail that visits two lakes and a spectacular lookout, returning via an abandoned railway. Rock Lake is definitely the top visual payoff, as you can see. This is afternoon light, but I think it works pretty well. Nikon D50 (or maybe this was photographed on slide film & scanned onto a CD; can’t remember for sure now), tripod, polarizing filter.
