Northern Ontario, Canada

Arrow Lake at Northwest Flying Inc.
Imagine for a moment a pristine lake, cloaked by thousands of acres of lush wilderness, stretched out as far as the eye can see.   Waves crash and the sound resonates through you as they sizzle into layers on the shore. Unsullied by engines revving in midday traffic because there aren't any cars. Not for miles. No city lights to dilute the horizon as the sky shifts from blue to amber. Your toes plunge into wet sand as you take an evening stroll and the call of a distant loon fills your mind with the fond hope of a summer-eternal. Imagine you're here.

Beautiful day in April in Nestor Falls, Ontario, Canada
Other than a few northern outpost lakes, the lakes in Northwest Ontario are free of ice! What a difference a year makes.   As many of you may recall, the Winter/Spring of 2014 saw harsh conditions with record breaking snow and cold temperatures. 2015 is a different story. With an average winter, the lakes all started opening up in mid-to-late April and most were free of ice in early May. The southern lakes like Rainy Lake along the US/Canada border usually open up first, followed by parts of Lake of the Woods and Eagle Lake, then the more northern lakes such as Perrault Lake, Lac Seul and Red Lake follow. The northern outpost lakes and the deep lake trout lakes…
Secrets To Discover And Nightlife To Enjoy: Where the Excitement Happens!
A friend of mine once said, "You live twice if you live at night." I thought at the time it seemed like a clever thing to say, but with each passing year this seemingly simple statement became something that I read more and more into. Every city has things to do during the day, but nightfall brings a whole new array of exciting adventures. The traffic may disappear, but that doesn't mean there isn't fun to be had, secrets to discover and nightlife to enjoy. Many doors that are closed in the light of day, open for business in the evenings. One of the Sault's most famous local establishments, Loplops Lounge has something on the go each night of the…

Knitted and crocheted items and yarn are just some of the local products you can purchase at Mill Market.
A year ago, Mill Market opened its doors to the community showcasing Northern Ontario vendors such as farmers, ranchers, fishermen and artisans from the Algoma Region and beyond. I have had the privilege and the pleasure of documenting a year in photographs for Mill Market, Sault Ste. Marie's newest all year round market. Mill Market is celebrating its one year anniversary this June 2015. Mill Market is located at 35 Canal Drive. The location was once the Municipal Fish Hatchery across from the Clergue Generating Station -- situated near the Sault Locks. You can also access Mill Market along the John Rowswell Hub Trail. It is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.  The Mill Market has everything from food, clothing, crafting,…
