Blog Guelph: Guelph Arboretum

University of Guelph Arboretum

The Arboretum on campus is an amazing place to wander through, and a remarkable environment for photography. I have shot there for the past four years and am continually inspired by the niches revealed to me during different seasons, different lighting, and different paths. I have so many memories of photographing in the Arboretum, like the time at dusk near the golf course when I watch two dogs chase a deer only for the dogs to collapse at my feet while darkness settled in. Or the first time I stumbled upon the pond, or that boardwalk, or the rows of trees planted beyond the paths, or the field of exploding milkweed pods silhouetted by the setting sun... If you like being around growth, then I can't recommend enough a trip through the Arboretum. Perhaps I should do a weekly Arboretum series!
Hope you are all enjoying the brief resurgence of summer, I am getting antsy for full-on Fall!
