Ever plan a photographic outing (within a few hours drive) and the photographs do nothing for you. You are familiar with the area because you were smart and did all the research online, making sure you knew what kinds of photographs were to be taken. Somehow that excitement about seeing something for the first time doesn't feel great - maybe because you already seen it online.
Well sometimes, it's good just to pick a direction and drive. Then take a couple of secondary roads and see what happens. This sort of strategy usually doesn't work. But every now and then, you see great photographic opportunities that are nowhere to be seen on the net. I'm sure that many people have taken them, but just not posted where they are easily found.
This photograph is just one of many taken last weekend. We had a rough idea where we wanted to end up (which we did not end up in). Took a few side-roads near honey harbour in Ontario (an hours drive north of Toronto) and spent several hours photographing. A worthwhile adventure to the unknown.
