Winter Landfall

This view is from the "Alligator" setup at the Algonquin Logging Museum, near the east gate of the park. The logging alligator is an amphibious tug boat like vehicle that would have been used extensively in the region. Here’s a view out the windows from the wheel house.

This is the "theatre" area in the now abandoned Burwash Correctional Centre and Farm. The chair and the room is lit with ambient and some flashlights were used to highlight features like the chair.

Making Tracks

While a lot of people grumble about the arrival of here, I am quite happy to go out and find snowscapes to photograph. Here, some critter has decided to wander across a golf course.

Hot Dummer

We were not the only group doing photography at Burwash Correctional Facility & Farm that night. A musician named Marc-jean Desjardins was on site filming a music video for his song called "Insane?". Around midnight the group decided to light the drum set on fire while his drummer played, which of course attracted all the photographers in a hurry. This is on the roof of the complex too.

Windows ’75 Has Encountered A Problem

This is a door at Burwash Correctional Facility and Farm, which closed in 1975. I loved the colours on the door and the wall behind so naturally I pointed the camera at this.

Burwash Cells

A hallway in Ontario’s abandoned Burwash Correctional Institute and Farm. The doors have long been vandalized here, and the hallway made for some fun shadowplay.

First Snow on the Bruce

Snow on the trail as seen in the Sydenham section of the Bruce Trail during my hike on Saturday. Fortunately this much snow isn’t much of an impediment to hiking as we were travelling 35km that day. This is the time of the year that we still appreciate the snow for the beauty it brings.
