One of my photography friends has been visiting the Central Experimental Farm (CEF). He's been using it as place where he can go for long walks while socially distancing from other people. Sometimes he's carried a camera with him and taken some photographs. But even without a camera, all photographers take note of photographic opportunities. He suggested that I join him to explore some of these opportunities together. For those not familiar with Ottawa, the CEF comprises 427 hectares (1,055 acres) of open space. Established in 1886, it is near downtown Ottawa and borders the historic Rideau Canal. The farm is an active research centre, and is also a wonderful recreational resource. Walking and cycling paths crisscross the farm. There are also an Arboretum, Ornamental Gardens, and a Tropical Greenhouse. The Fletcher Wildlife Garden, operated by the Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club, is also found there. The farm is so large, that it requires more than one outing. For this outing we confined ourselves to the western part. It was a very enjoyable evening. Mixing a creative pursuit with quality time with friends is a winning combination for me.
