Lightning behind Peterborough, Ontario’s Market Hall Clock Tower during Thursday nights big storm.
Here is another shot from the new Solar Farm that is located 5 minutes from my home. I have a feeling that I will be shooting this place a lot, and trying to capture it with different moods.
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 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.
1. Spotted Salamander (Ambystoma maculatum), sitting next to the overspray of paint from the yellow line running down the middle of the road.
2. Eastern Newt (Notophthalmus viridescens) in its terrestrial juvenile form, known as a Red Eft.
3. Spring Peeper (Pseudacris crucifer)
4 & 5. Grey Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor)
This is the first N. Hawk Owl that I have seen and photographed. Unfortunately it was sitting on a power line, which doesn’t make for a great photograph. Hopefully I will be able to find it again over the weekend, on a more natural perch.
