Due to the recent cold weather we have been having here, along with a few snow flurries too, the activity at the frog ponds has ceased. Once the weather warms up in a few days I am hoping to get back out into the ponds. In the meantime, I have been busy working on various projects which led me to my photos of Hogg’s Falls. This is in my opinion one of the most beautiful and photogenic waterfalls in Ontario. It is situated on the Niagara Escarpment in Grey County. Regardless of the season this waterfall has never let me down. However, during the winter months the mist coming off the falls can be quite troublesome as it freezes to your gear including coating filters in ice. It lies in the Beaver Valley along the broad and shallow Boyne River. The best vantage point to shoot this waterfall requires a careful climb down into the gorge which I always carry a length of rope to make both the descent and ascent a little easier, particularly in winter when the gorge walls become quite icy. I also enjoy using this waterfall to practice my modeling skills 🙂
