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.

Common and not so common sightings

Today I photographed two species of bird. The first one is very common and the second one is rare in the area.

First up is the common, Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias

and now for the rare, American Avocet, Recurvirostra americana
Unfortunately the bird was to far for a decent photo.
