Billy Monkley Cascade: Ontario Waterfalls

Found in the Hamilton Conservation Area that is accessed on Dartnall St. between Rymall Rd. and Stonechurch Rd. in Hamilton. Considering it is the heart of an industrial area, it can be very secluded and a nice little step waterfall.

Rating:

GPS Location: N 43° 11.575′ W 79° 49.811′
Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.

One Million Visitors!!

How to photograph fireworks

Yesterday the stats counter at Google Analytics which keeps track of visitors  to this blog reported that it had received its One Millionth Visitor. OK, I know there are a lot websites that would dwarf the popularity of this one but consider this. When I started this blog about five years ago, I had 15 visitors for all of the first week.

Snowy Owl

Initially my posts were about birds and to date I have done about 400 posts on birds.The most popular post on birds has been the Snowy Owl above which has had more than 10,000 visits.

Gradually I added a few more of my interests (obsessions?). Covered bridges was one of them and a post on Everett Covered Bridge in Ohio became the most visited in a single day with 9,700 people accessing it one day after it was featured on Stumbleupon.

Its been a lot of fun putting out something every day whether its about birds, Covered bridges, Waterfalls or photoshop tutorials. My thanks to everyone who have come to have a look.

Felker Falls; Ontario Waterfalls

Felkers Falls is another of the beautiful waterfalls found in Hamilton. It can be reached by taking Centennial Drive (Highway 20) off of the Highway 403 (Niagara) and going up the escarpment until you turn right on Mud St.. Turn right on Paramount Dr., and then another right on Ackland where you will find a small park on the right where you can park. Felkers Falls is lovely especially in the fall foliage, but for a photographer, it can set some problems in finding a clear view.
