MacKay’s Harbour, near Lion’s Head, Bruce Peninsula, Ontario

Most years, at some point between May and November, I like to spend a quiet night at this back country campsite on the Bruce Trail. It is reachable by kayak, and that makes it even more special.  And this year in particular I have come to appreciate the qualities of the Bruce Peninsula more, and have made it a point to photograph a few destinations, experimenting with a few more tricks and techniques.   The water level has come back up from past years and this creates a “cleaner” shoreline for a more dramatic foreground.  And during the summer months the setting sun skims the cliffs and trees and creates a beautiful mood.  On the way to this spot I came across a can of Sleeman beer that a hiker must have lost on the trail a few day before.  It was a light beer- not my first choice- but it did hit the spot after negotiating with the boulders and standing in water for half an hour to get this photo.
