Beside The Canal

I found this place almost by accident. The scene looked so beautiful that I had to have a picture of it. And I think I was lucky enough to capture it well, which is not always an easy thing to do. You can see the canal flows towards a place where boats dock in the background. You can't really see the boats, but there is a hint of them in the distance.

I took this photo at a park that sits on the waterfront where the Detroit River flows into Lake Erie. This section is somewhat separated from the rest of the park, so I had to walk quite a distance to get here. I'm glad I did, because the view is wonderful in any direction. I had my back to Lake Erie when I took this one. I have at least one photo of the lake already in the archives here, with more to come.

If you'd like to see more of my work go take a look at any of my three sites. I'm the editor here at Nature Center Magazine, and I also have two blogs. The Everyday Adventurer is my nature blog where I tell stories of my daily nature hikes and the things I encounter, with more photos like this one. Rat Tales is where I get to share some of the fiction that I write. No photos there though, just some very cool stories.
