Hike along the Track and Tower Trail
Lens: Tamron 17 - 50 f/2.8, Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Algonquin Park, Ontario 
Posted By: tessfully, 06-15-2014, 06:10 AM

At the end of May we did a hike in Algonquin Park. There were lots of biting bugs which seems to be necessary to catch the vibrant greens of new growth and the early spring flowers.

Here are a few from that day.

To the look out















Thanks for taking a hike with me!

Great set, but I think I like the stand of birches best...that would make a great mono/split tone image perhaps. (FWIW, we have any number of ornery, sometimes dangerous, creatures here in the South, but the only thing I'm really afraid of are those boardwalks--wet/frosty lumber and hard-rubber Vibram soles are a bad combination at times.)

A variety of images, well spotted. There does seem to be a variety of trilliums in your area - I've only been able to come across the white variety. Glad you were able to put up with the biting bugs, the images posted were worth it.

Regards

Thanks for commenting Creation Bear. In some places the park staff have nailed down roof shingles on the boardwalk planks we portage across carrying very heavy loads on canoe trips. Yep, they can be deadly when wet.

It is a vast wilderness. Almost 8000 square kilometres and that doesn't include the crown land. These photos were taken on a trail close to the highway corridor. But, you can get lost in the real outback via canoe where you see no people, boardwalks or stairs. Thanks for commenting.

such lovely country and all very well photographed. I especially like the lighting in the first couple. Great to see all that snow melted and you sharing the beauty that surrounds you. Nice hat btw.

Thanks Dave. I did several shutter speeds with the water and always chose the middle one.

Thanks Bob. Ya, finally no snow but lots of bugs. The one with the hat...The hat saves my head from crawlers, and I have to make that face or bugs fly into my eyes and mouth.

Thank you Jim! I would never have thought of that. Will give it a try.

Thank you so much gmans. There is a canoe route through there, but people carry their canoes around the rapids. I guess if you are a white water person that would be a real fun albeit challenging strip!
