Biologist, nature-lover, seeking beauty in the wilderness. Just finished a 9-mo trip with my family in SE Asia, Aus & NZ. Back exploring home again xo

A tangle of branches, blurring the line between real and surreal.
Sunset at the lake's edge.
Hoofing it on the portage between lakes on the Barron Canyon in Algonquin Provincial Park. We spent a blissful unplugged weekend in the wilderness, paddling on water like glass; my kids were brilliant, and I couldn't be more proud of their stamina. I'll post pics this week of the trip after I catch up on my sleep 😴

You know what boggles my mind? How the ancient astronomers managed to see, name, and track constellations back when the night sky looked like this: trillions of tiny white lights that dazzle and hypnotize at the same time. I can barely pick out Delphinus in the midst of these diamonds, and normally she's easily found jumping out at me when I look up at the night sky.
I call this: Lily pads in black and white. Because I'm witty like that. (Ha!).
A tangerine sunset on Lake Huron.
Georgian Bay. *Gasp*
Found in the understory.
Those rocks look to be right under the surface, but they are at least 8 ft down; the waters of Lake Huron are a paddler's dream.
The Bruce Peninsula 💚❤️
Masts in the Marina
At the river's edge.
On the weekend, the skies were clear, so my family jumped into the car and headed 20 mins from our house. The sun had just set, the horizon was glowing from the city streetlights, there were floodlights from a barn across the street, and cars drove by every couple minutes with their headlights on - not exactly a dark sky preserve, but we'll take it. We pointed our eyes towards Perseus, and within 30 minutes we saw a dozen meteors. The kids were gasping in astonishment. My camera battery had less than 5% life, I couldn't find the ball head to my tripod, and I kept messing with my settings trying to accommodate all the ambient light. But I caught a short meteor trail, coming out of Cassiopeia (can you see it?) and it made me so happy. When I see this image, I can hear the crickets & smell the clover. I now have memories of pointing out Delphinus and Cygnus to my boys, as we watched satellites coast by in between shooting stars who left fiery trails in the night sky. It didn't take much to get off the couch, but it sure was worth it.
All I want to do is walk towards the light.
