Doris McCarthy Trail in October

It’s mid-October and the colours of autumn in Toronto are taking their time in reaching a full show of yellows and reds, although some have already made their presence on trees. A visit to the Doris McCarthy Trail starts with a descent along a path through a beautiful forest with a brook below, the sound of running water a soothing soundtrack to accompany your walk until you arrive at the bottom of the trail. There you are greeted by the expanse of Lake Ontario. You can then walk for a long time and enjoy the sight of the lake on one side and the beauty of trees and sumac already turned red on the other. These are photos from a recent visit.

    Belos detalhes de um Outono com sabor a Outono. Por aqui, o Verão não está com vontade de ir embora….

    Lovely, But if only Autumn were immediately followed by Spring… (Well, maybe I’d tolerate a week of Winter, just for the novelty).

    Oh Emanuel, these photos are spectacular. There are two that really resonate with me and that could easily become paintings: the one of the stone-walled point of land jutting out into the lake and the one of the coloured leaves on the water. They offer open doors for reflection and enjoyment. Thank you so much.
