In the process of producing the panoramic version of the sunset at Pincer Lake, I accidentally opened up all the files in photoshop as layers, and, liking the effect, I worked with it and produced this.
A highlight from my recent backpacking trip along the Western Uplands Trail in Algonquin Provincial Park. Sunset from one of the campsites on South Pincher Lake, two days into the backcountry.

What I believe to be Lycoperdon pyriforme, another apparently-edible species, growing on a downed log.
An apparently-edible species of mushroom which grows from the sides of trees in a distinctive shape.
Just as the light was fading, we came across this cow and calf alongside the track portion of the Track and Tower trail, causing a stop that meant we had to make the last of the trip in the dark. The light was almost gone, the rain slanted into the lens of the camera, so I was not able to get the quality of photos I would have liked, but it was wonderful to see the moose in such a natural habitat, and at such a reasonable distance.
A chipmunk peeks through grass to keep an eye on the camera, as it roots through the duff for food.
