On July 3, 2012, when I’d had my first little starter DSLR camera for about 3 weeks and barely knew how to turn it on, I took the bus up to Collingwood for the first time, went for an afternoon walk and happened upon this scene –The wind was blowing, a storm was on its way in, and I was thrilled by the blasts of wet air, almost sea-like, and the dramatic clouds everywhere.I walked. I took pictures. I marvelled.
At the time all that was expected of the experience was a relaxing week up north on Georgian Bay – I had no idea this was the beginning of something.But now, just about 3 years later, and many dozens of trips north with that camera and several others later, I can say…
That spot, happened upon by chance on a first day out wandering, and the surrounding hills and paths and parks, became my wild sanctuary, my muse, my special spot.

Wonderfully dramatic. I like how this challenge has people sharing their special places in the natural world.
Fantastic! Such drama and power you captured makes me wonder what the air smelled like when clouds were rolling their angry thoughts.
Glad to see you back buddy!
You would think it was the sea, not just the bay of a big lake.
Lovely to see you, dearheart
Thanks buddy! 🙂
Good for you! There is a lot to be seen in clouds of many kinds.I have taken many pictures of them myself, but I never chanced upon such wonderful storm clouds, myself.
Georgian Bay is special – the skies are so spectacular… 🙂
Mighty shots, Kat!
Oh Wow, I love that picture. Clouds are so inspiring and magical.
Really exciting. I felt like I was in the midst of it all. You could feel the electricity in the air. The wind blowing a bit by, your hair in a mess. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much – it is a thrilling coastline, I agree 🙂
Photographs are so eye catching….. The pics look so real that if you will play them on a very very large LED, it will definitely feel that u r looking at the real sky n beautiful clouds.
Which country is this?
So sweet of you for replying.
Wonderfully dramatic images Katalina.
Those skies, that coast, make me think of your images – the moodiness, the drama…
Thanks James 🙂
