This new feature is designed to inspire you to look at the world around you, to take note of the season at hand and to capture it – in memory or on film – for posterity. I will be choosing five photos each week for with this aim in mind. We’re calling the feature, The Five Most Beautiful Things In The World This Week


Sunday Lake

Several years ago our family purchased a lovely parcel of land just north of Ottawa, Ontario, where we built a log cabin. It is still a work in progress, since we are doing all the work ourselves, but it is such a beautiful spot. Each summer I like to spend at least a week there to recharge, rethink, reimagine and reinvigorate. I never underestimate the power of a beautiful natural spot to heal and restore what may be wounded in us. Below are photos I took last summer of the beautiful Sunday Lake and its environs. I hope you’ll visit me there in spirit!

Everyone needs a special spot like this. A spot where you've built something with your two hands. 🙂
