Beauty in Nature: Morning Dew

I was up at 4 am on Saturday driving my husband and friend to Whitney to launch our canoe Singing Wilderness so they could paddle across Algonquin Park.

Most morning temperatures were about 5°C in Muskoka, but when we dropped a vehicle off at Oxtongue Lake, the temperature was 3°C!

When the sun started coming up there was beauty in nature everywhere.

The morning dew was thick and made for some great photo opportunities.

I have tried photographing spiderwebs before and the pictures turned out okay, but when I drove by a wetland along the highway, there were webs everywhere glistening in the sun. I had to stop and admire the intricate lines and beads of dew. Nature is so awesome!

I saw a huge patch of fireweed that looked like it was covered in ice!

Goldenrod is so beautiful right now, and other leaves are showing signs of the changing seasons.

I drove down to Bancroft to the Eagle’s Nest lookout for a hike. It had been a few years since I’ve been there. There were just a few patches of fog burning off in the morning sun.
