Mill of Kintail
The Mill of Kintail Conservation Area is located a little less than an hour's drive South-West of Ottawa. It's a beautiful area, with the historic mill building along the Indian River, and several trails. This was one of two areas chosen by my photo club for the year's Fall Challenge. The other site was the nearby Blakeney Rapids Park. The Fall Challenge is a friendly competition among photographers. Participants all photograph Nature on the chosen date at the chosen venue(s) and then we see who came away with the best shots. A friend and I traveled to the competition together and decided beforehand to concentrate on the Mill of Kintail. For my part, I split my time between visible and infrared photography. This was even though I didn't think the infrared shots would qualify for the competition and I didn't plan to submit any. I wanted to use what was left of the growth season best suited to infrared work. On the way home, we passed an often-photographed log home, and I took a few infrared shots of that for good measure. It was a fun day and I'm looking forward to seeing all the photographs that were submitted.
