Not too long ago I had the opportunity to go to Muskoka Lakes, which is just a mere 2 hour drive from Toronto. It’s a great location for hiking and water activities if that’s what interests you. It’s cottage country so it gets busy on weekends, but that’s no reason for you to not go, even if it is for a daytrip.

I did a short climb up to Huckleberry Rock, where it oversees the beautiful valley and lakes of Muskoka. Unfortunately I was limited in time as a storm was brewing not too far in the distance, and was quickly coming in my direction. The three girls came here just as I was taking some photos, so I had to include them in at least one of my shots! Placing them around a third of the way in from the side, allows us to see the rest of the landscape, which is where the heads of the girls are turned towards.

The dramatic clouds, darker background and the wind-swept hair of the girls all add to this photo that make it a little more interesting to the viewers.

I was so busy trying to get some shots that we actually got a little rained on since I didn’t leave this rock until the very last minute!
