Photographer's Note

Great glaciers carved out the province of Ontario's Great Lakes during the last ice age. The hard precambrian rocks that remain make up a distinctive and beautiful part of the province's landscape. Georgian Bay is a branch of Lake Huron, the northernmost situated Great Lake and one of the largest. The resort town of Tobermory is at the northern end of Gerogian Bay. From Tobermory, you can take a speed boat to a small island called Flower Pot Island, where rocks have been carved by the weather into unusual formations like these, called "flower pots". The water is crystal clear, and the scenery is stunning. In addition to spectacular views, this part of Canada is home to large numbers and varieties of wild orchids. Every spring I join my camera club for our annual pilgrimmage to this wonderful place to photograph the orchids and other wild flowers.
