Last weekend, (the one before last), my wife was hosting a party for some friends and it was the perfect excuse for me to head out with the camera. The only problem was the absolutely horrible conditions. It had been ice raining for hours and covered all the roads with a good layer of ice. The main highways weren’t bad, but the photogenic spots I was after were all down old dirt roads and the going was slow.
One of the last stops of the day was to Callaghan’s Rapids Conservation Area just southwest of Marmora, Ontario. I had found this place while scouring Google Earth looking for water features to photograph. Part of the Crowe River, the rapids are only about 1 metre tall and span the entire width of the river. From a distance the falls almost look man-made, but it is on a outcropping of limestone. Apparently, when the water levels are low, you can right out and explore the river bed. Below are some of my favourite shots from the location.
