Just down the road

I recently moved to a small town in Quebec. It's just north of Ottawa, on the edge of the Gatineau hills. This image was taken last Saturday, about half a mile from where I now live.

1. It's a lovely image, my dear jackalope!

There is a beautiful symmetry here, along with the fall colors.

I like it a lot. I hope you're finding peace here.

2. What,... no traffic jams ?

It looks cozy, relaxing, and stress free.

6. Healing takes a while, but it's happening.

The keys seem to be a combination of retirement, a change of location to a more natural setting, and above all, time.

Oh, and juicy impeachment hearings...

Thanks for saying hi!

5. Fall foliage!

We were robbed this year. Just as the leaves were starting to show a tiny bit, a killer freeze came along and now everything has a grey/green color and just dropping off the trees and shrubs, no foliage this year.

7. So pretty!

I used to live a bit west of there and fall was always spectacular. Someone who still lives there took this shot a few days ago...



I miss being there so very much.

8. The colours are at their peak now, every drive takes my breath away.

The Gatineau hills and the Ottawa River are an unbeatable combination.

I used to be a hard-core journalistic photographer. Now I only shoot pretty - it's a lot easier on my heart.
