Photo of the Week – 2020-12-05

A Parry Sound North Shore Rugged Trail beach scene – so romantic. The image is from earlier this week looking toward the Town and is a bit misleading. It’s a 10 second exposure that smoothed out the crashing waves. It was bit wild out on the trail with the waves and the fresh snow. On the bright side it was remarkably mild and kind to bare hands. (December 2020)

This image seems to capture the weather of the past month, cloudy day and night. In this case it’s a full moon trying to make an appearance. On the upside there has been little snow and the temperatures are above average. You take what you can get. (October 2020)

More scenes from the Parry Sound waterfront. This early November image was taken from the Salt Dock looking south, not the salt dock at Smelter Wharf. Parry Island is to the right. It almost looks as though we are decorated for Christmas with the mix of coloured lights. The brown in the sky is light pollution. (November 2020)

Waxing moon and sunset over the Big Sound as seen from Parry Sound’s North Shore Rugged Trail. If you look closely. (click the image to see a larger version at you can make out the Smelter Wharf’s Great Pyramid to the left and Zhiishiib Rock to the right. The panorama format messes with perspective in an interesting way. (October 2020)

NSRT Blues. This is a view from the North Shore Rugged Trail in late October looking northwest  from a little beyond Zhiishiib Rock. The blues are the effective ‘daylight’ colours at that time of day. Our brains are ‘programmed’ to compensate for the natural blues of a cloudy post sunset sky like this. (October 2020)

Orion over Highway 400. This is a view from the Parry Sound Drive overpass looking south in late September. It’s a busy highway in the middle of the night even with the summer season starting to wind down. The lights on the horizon are from the Town of Parry Sound. (September 2020)

A view from Parry Sound’s North Shore Rugged Trail. This shot is from a little earlier in the month before the ‘rains’ arrived. That’s Zhiishiib Rock in the foreground and Parry Sound in the distance. Saturn and Jupiter are looking down from above. (October 2020)

Your ship has come in – the Algoma Innovator. These visits always provide interesting views and dramatic photos, especially after sunset when the lights are on and the sky takes on a blue cast.

While you were sleeping. A middle of the night view of the coming night sky; Orion over Mill Lake framed by traffic on Highway 400. (September 2020) (Note: the image has been edited to make Orion a little easier to spot. Click on the image for a larger version at
