Here is the chosen shot! The funny thing was all three edits for this shot were equally voted for! So in the end, I picked my favorite. Also I learned that regardless of how I edit a picture, a good picture is what is appreciated. Why I like this shot? Well my grandfather made this beautiful woodshed, and to me that is special. Thank you for everyone's feedback!!!

October 25: Third leg of the 2017 Canadian road trip... 🛣️ Geraldton, ON to Kapuskasing, ON
It was -4°C (chill -9°C) when I left the house at 9:30am, it had stopped snowing, the streets had been plowed, and pathways shovelled.
The local cafe/restaurant I went to happened to be run by a woman from New Zealand.
I was again told it really wasn't much snow, it was just the first snow of the fall season and it also gets down to -40°C eventually.
The drive along the highway was way better and easier than the previous day. I ran into very little snow and the highway had been plowed. The further east I drove towards Kapuskasing, the more I noticed French was the first-language in these communities.
I think people are getting so caught up in other people’s stories that they are forgetting about their own.
We all carry a tale unique to us. You don’t have to climb Everest to be a person of interest, or to have a life of value. Share your story, be authentic to your timeline, and don’t be afraid to share your realities.
“Story telling” isn’t about fabricating your life to be something wild and non-reflective of your actual reality. Story telling is sharing the essence of who you are, and what you care about. If more people invested in self-awareness, and deployed it into the world, I think their ROI would be far more positive in the long-term.
Here is the other American Pine Marten my son and I saw while up in #algonquin !! I was up on a pile of snow with the afternoon sun at my back!! Right time right place...as the Marten climbed down the tree!! So amazing!! Love these awesome animals...part of the Mustelidae family along with Weasels, Otters, Minks and the elusive Wolverine!!
I don’t get 3 Moose in a frame very often!! This yearling Bull Moose was being watched carefully by his Mom and another Cow Moose!! What a thrill it was to see them!! It was even snowing! If you look closely you can see his little buds where his antlers are coming in!! I’m not 100% sure...but this may be the Cow and Calf I photographed last summer and in the fall! They were pretty close to the same area!! They look so healthy and tick free...which is so wonderful!! I’ve seen hundreds of these majestic animals, but I still get so excited when I see them!! Remember to be more mindful on the roads in the spring and slow down...it’s when all the animals start moving around more!! Thanks all!!
