It's great to have friends

One of the best things about working in this business is the generous, friendly and interesting people you get to meet. One of these folks is Olaf Schneider, an artist and photographer. Olaf and his wife Tracey visit Algonquin Park often and recently sent us some beautiful photos and scans of a few of his paintings:

They were taken on July 1st & 2nd, Tracey and I were paddling into Hailstorm Creek and we saw Jerry and his friend pass by. We wondered what they were doing, so we paddled toward them. Just then, we saw a young bull standing at the shore eating. As I changed lenses the moose decided to change location. He got into the water and started swimming right towards us. I nearly ...... , so we stayed right where we were and I just started shooting photos. It was awesome. Jerry and his colleague in the canoe made a really nice backdrop for these images.
The cameras keep rolling when a moose swims by!

One of Olaf's recent paintings: "At Rest"

Thanks Olaf! We'll post more of his images another time...
