“In the morning mist at Moira Lake”

In the morning mist on Moira Lake

Photo by Grant Ketcheson

“In the morning mist at Moira Lake” is the name of this stunning photo, which was taken by our friend Grant Ketcheson at about 7:45 a.m. this very morning. Grant and his wife, Gayle (my Grade 1 teacher at Madoc Township Public School), were enjoying coffee at their place on the lake just south of Madoc when Gayle spotted the elks.

The old saying is that a picture is worth a thousand words. This picture says more eloquently than I ever could why Raymond and I love central Hastings County. Because of unexpected, wild beauty. And friends.

  1. I’m SO envious! Since we moved to Madoc 3 1/2 years ago, I’ve been hearing about the elk and longing to see them, but no luck so far. What a striking photo! It really brings back memories of all the wildlife sightings at Skinner’s Pond, our northern Ontario property.

  2. What a magnificent photo! Nothing against hunters – I am, after all, not a vegetarian – but this is my idea of “shooting” animals. It took me a while to notice the silhouette of the female at the left, which, for me, raised this shot from very good to great. Congratulations, Grant.
