Natural landscapes: the somber, silent shoreline


Our visit to this village in eastern Ontario featured about one hour of sunshine in five days. I didn’t let that stop me from venturing out to find compelling landscapes. The introspective simplicity of this scene, along the shore of the semi-frozen Ottawa River, attracted me. As with so many cloudy winter days, there was almost no colour to be had, so I did away with it altogether.
