Thousand Islands

The January 2014 1000 Islands Photo Art wallpaper image awaits...

The recent ice storm produced a monochrome painting, which only in the last moments of the following days when the clouds evaporated, briefly allowed the sun to add a few brush strokes of color.

Need a summer read? One in a Thousand's MarCom Award citation: “Every once in a while an entry comes across the judging table that totally enthralls us. We quickly forget where we are and what we are doing. We become spectators, not judges. Such was the case with an eBook app called One in a Thousand. With the first image you drift away to that place in your brain where you see and feel pure beauty and nirvana. Instantly, the images and words infiltrate your imagination.” OneinaThousand.ca

Shot yesterday at Singer Castle while prepping McLellan Group's video production for one of the Aquatarium's exhibits. MG's tech geniuses were the creators of our award winning iPad App "One in a Thousand."

Here's yesterday's "One in a Thousand" view. To say this River has a thousand moods is to sell it way too short.

A Thousand Islands with a thousand moods, constantly changing. Dawn this morning, overlooking Toniata Island.

    So grateful for your photos. They allow me to be in the 1000 Islands wherever I may be. Thank you again Ian.

"In August, Canada’s Juno nominated band “Great Lake Swimmers” visited McLellan Group’s ‘Eastern Office’ in the 1000 Islands. With three great shooters, perfect weather, underwater cameras and the River’s funkiest barge, we created the official video for “Ballad of a Fisherman’s Wife” from their acclaimed “New Wild Everywhere” album. It's 3 minutes long and will give you a wonderful last 'hit' of Summer." - Doug McLellan, CEO, McLellan Group

10 days ago I moved to shore, trying to delay the inevitable. It's not remotely like island life, but the River remains beautiful. This morning.

For those who love the River, or simply beautiful places, winter is the time I share an image each month to help with island withdrawal. The first for this season is posted here: www.1000islandsph...

Two Raleigh Island firsts. Its most regal ever visitor, surveying the island from a shoal that in all the years I've been here, has never before surfaced.

The "fall" continues...

Two Islands become One (in a Thousand).

Raleigh had the honor of a visit from my niece, her husband Helcio and their two amazing kids from Rio de Janeiro the last couple of days. Maya, the spitting image of her Mom, seems to be another the River has chosen, here in a pensive moment.
