Steeprock River, Manitoba

In September 2017, Sean and I were lucky enough to spend a couple nights in Manitoba's Porcupine Hills. The weather was perfect, allowing us to get in a full-day exploratory hike where we found marine fossils, a rut site and plenty of fall scenery.

This photo series was shot with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3, 14-42/F3.5-5.6 lens.

Stand-out Specimen

A birch tree near camp stood out from the rest on the riverbank. I couldn't describe why it seemed odd until I noticed how the trunk and branches appeared superimposed on top of its leaves.
