Natural landscapes: Radiant Red

AUTUMN AT MEECH LAKE, GATINEAU PARK, QUEBEC

This glorious park, across the provincial border from Canada’s capital city (Ottawa), provides a cornucopia of images any time of year. I travelled there with the goal of photographing autumn colours and, as you can see, I hit the jackpot at this beautiful spot. Ironically, the name ‘Meech Lake’ is etched in recent Canadian political history – a 1987 constitutional deal between the federal government and the 10 provinces was hammered out at a resort on this lake. The Meech Lake Accord was hugely controversial and ultimately failed. But the lake continues to impress the discerning eyes of nature lovers. Nikon FM2, tripod, polarizing filter, Velvia slide film.

  1. I was wondering where all the Autumn color was! Beautiful! Our color is very brownish/yellowish/goldish this year, all the vibrant colors have been missing these last two years 😦
