Autumn Morning

Nature creates the most wonderful of paintings.
These photos were taken during a stroll in the wetlands of a small island, Île Bizard (historically named Île Bonaventure, but given its actual name in 1723, after Jacques Bizard, whose fief it became in 1678) next to the Island of Montreal, in the Hochelaga Archipelago, at the confluence of the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers.
A beautiful summery Saturday morning, quite hot, with only the changing colours of leaves and a certain sweet mildness in the air to hint at the impending autumn...

Hey there,
I am thinking about your challenge, but in the meantime ...

There's a new writing project up at The Shameless Lions Writing Circle site. Please check it out and I hope you can take part and promote it. Also, check out the "latest news" section.
Cheers, Seamus.

Thanks, Seamus, I'll what I can do.

Bernita, thank you, you're very kind. I see your comments on Jon's and Jason's blogs all the time, but I never had the opportunity (time, in fact) to visit yours. Now I shall return.

Enjoyed the pics and not at all how I'd imagined that part of the world to look.

Vesper said...

Glad you liked the pics, Travis.

Beautiful. The photos give me the sense of so much air - moist and clean.

Yes, it is beautiful, AV. Very peaceful - a world in its own...
