No more excuses!

This city is full of beautiful scenery, just waiting to be enjoyed and photographed. I frequent a few favourite spots, which I often have to rush through at the end of a long day. And there are so many that I have never even visited. I have the best of intentions to set out with my camera, but day-to-day life provides a convenient path to procrastination.

So here's the plan. I have a book called Nature and Natural Areas in Canada's Capital, published by The Ottawa Citizen and The Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club. Certainly there are places I'd like to see that may not fit into this book, but here is a good start, I think:

Poltimore Road
Gatineau Park, includes:
-Ramsay Lake
-Eardley Escarpment
-Champlain Lookout
-Mackenzie King Estate
-Old Chelsea Ravine
-Pink Lake
-Hickory Trail
Wychwood
Champlain Park Woods
Brebeuf Park
Tache Gardens Woods
Leamy Lake Park
Beauchamp Lake Park
McLaurin Bay
Carleton Place Hackerry Stand
Mill of Kintail Conservation Area
The Burnt Lands
Constance Bay Sand Hills
Carp Hills
Shirley's Bay
Stony Swamp Conservation Area
Stillwater Creek
Andrew Haydon Park
Britannia Conservation Area
Pinhey Forest Reserve
Carlington Woods
Central Experimental Farm
The Malborough Forest
Baxter Conservation Area
Rockcliffe Park
Green's Creek Conservation Area
Lower Duck Island
Mer Bleue Conservation Area
Pine Grove
Cobb's Lake
Bate Island
Pinecrest Creek

Even though summer's end is a strange time to start a goal like this, I am hoping it will motivate me to get out of the house during the winter months to do what I love: photographing our natural world.
