High Water and (of course) Ducks

image of river and dam showing high water spring runoffA lot of snow combined with a lot of rain in mid April has created one of the highest water levels on the Otonabee in a long, long time.

Little Lake 360­° and Fire in the Sky

360 degree image of little lake, peterborough at sunset in fallWe’ve had such beautiful clear weather recently it’s been hard to find a dramatic sky. Earlier this week it started to turn fall-like again with wind and rain and this intense sunset over Little Lake. The sky was the same colour as the trees behind me.

As the sun went down, it looked like the city was on fire. Read more “Little Lake 360­° and Fire in the Sky”
