Ottawa River to Mud Lake
I've photographed along the Ottawa River a couple of times this summer. I returned again with a good friend who suggested that we start from the river and walk to Mud Lake. We began at the Deschenes Rapids parking lot, accessed from the Sir John A Macdonald parkway. From there we walked past the delta of Pinecrest Creek, and then onwards to the eastern edge of Mud Lake. We retraced our steps to return to our cars at the parking lot. It was a beautiful day with puffy clouds, but a very strong onshore wind. Wind can be a blessing or a curse depending on what you're trying to do. Mostly, I just take what life gives me and look for interesting and beautiful things to photograph. While I've been to Mud Lake before, this section of the Ottawa River and Pinecrest Creek were new to me. By combining these areas, we found a wonderful variety of things to photograph. I will definitely want to return to each of these areas in the future!
