Peterborough Fall Colours Photos | Stewart Stick – Peterborough Photographer

The fall colours have arrived here in Peterborough. Probably not as spectacular as Algonquin Park, but I enjoyed getting out today and creating a few images, close to home.

The first two photos where taken at the Peterborough Liftlock.

There is a great spot that overlooks the colourfull canopy of trees covering Peterborough. Unfortunately a big Walmart ruins the chances of taking a nice wide angle photograph of it.

Spring Amphibians

Spring is the best time of year to get out and photograph amphibians. During the first warm rains of spring, the frogs and salamanders emerge and travel to their breeding pools. Driving along country roads, you can observe hundreds of amphibians crossing the roads.
