Sunday Drive – Renfrew & Burnstown (August 14, 2016)


On Sunday, August 14, 2016, my friend Elizabeth and I went for a drive through the Renfrew county countryside – she was prospecting for interesting minerals, and I wanted to take pictures. Our first stop was at the Renfrew town suspension bridge, so that we could poke among the river rocks. Because of the recent drought, we were able to walk on the large boulders in the middle of the river, and I was able to get these photos from a location, which is typically covered by water.

From Renfrew, we drove to the large rock cut just east of the bridge in Burnstown. While Elizabeth looked for minerals in the rock face, I snapped these photos of the Madawaska River.

It was one of those cool, dull and overcast days, but the day wasn’t without colour …
