Here are a few images from the Muskoka Winter Workshop last weekend. Above is a panorama of Wilson’s Falls on the Muskoka River stitched together from a series of 8 vertical images.

Rosseau River – as I made my way home from the workshop I decided to hike in along an unmaintained cottage road to one of my favorite locations on the Rosseau River. I believe the animal tracks along the river bank are that of a mink.

Last year during my fall colour photo excursions, I found myself along a small section of the Rosseau River near the town of Rosseau, Ontario. When I returned home from my first visit to this new location a day of heavy rain followed. I returned two days later knowing that the rainfall would cause the river to surge and thus be more photogenic. All images in this post are from this section of the Rosseau River which can be found by traveling on Highway 141 near the town of Rosseau. The highway crosses the river.

The panoramic image below was created by stitching 8 vertical images together. When I shoot panoramics, if possible, I usually shoot them as a series of verticals. I always use a leveling base between my tripod and ballhead. Before I started to use a leveling base, I found shooting panoramas to be an exercise in frustration.

The newly discovered Skeleton Falls, from last year, in Ontario’s Muskoka Region is one of my favorites. It is a very secluded waterfall, located a stones throw from Highway #141 and a little bit tricky to find and descend to. About 1.3 kms west of Fish Hatchery Road the highway makes a long left-handed bend, the waterfall is near the outside of the curve in the road and down a very steep forested embankment. I parked on a nearby dirt road and walked back to area near the falls. There is no safe place to park a car alongside of the highway. I would advise strongly to visit with a friend for safety reasons. After a descent rainfall is a small, but picturesque woodland waterfall.
