Catherine Meharg of Nipigon, Ontario (formerly of Terrace Bay), kindly agreed to supply one of her photos for the banner section in our March 31st, 2017 newsletter. Another of Catherine’s recent Rossport photos is provided above. A little background from the photographer herself:
…An early start, since I don’t like getting up before the sun.
Today was different. A 05:30 rise, quick cup of tea, no breakfast and stumbled out the door in the dark. What we saw was incredible. The colours of the cold late winter sky on the horizon lighting up the thin shimmering coating of ice in one of the protected bays of Lake Superior.
A camera doesn’t lie. The lens sometimes sees what the circuitry of the brain doesn’t.
As I snapped images musical notes from underneath the carpet of ice played, echoing across the bay. Imaginary whales sang from shore to shore. My heart and brain raced with excitement and joy. I still couldn’t grasp what my camera was showing me.
Two sets of Catherine’s recent Lake Superior photos follow:
