Elliot Lake: November Snow
Late November we had a taste of winter, here in Elliot Lake. These two shots were taken from the Health Clinic, looking down over the parking lot. Note the multi tier parking lot and the rugged tree covered ridge in the background. Level land is rare in this part of Ontario. If you want flat you have to make it flat.
The changing elevation as you travel through the community creates some unique opportunities for photographers. Even a driveway can provide a different angle or outlook.
It can be frustrating at times trying to get the sight-line you want for a particular subject, but it helps you see things in new ways.
Looking up from part of the E.L.S.S. enter-way at a home that is facing the street demonstrates the elevation challenges. The street itself is on an incline that rises to the left of the image. E. M. Escher would have loved the place. Sometimes we think the community planners used his work as an inspiration; others think they were just drinking and wanted a good laugh.
