Magpie Falls for Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday

My husband and I took a side trip during our vacation to Wawa, Ontario.  If you have ever been to Wawa they have a huge Canada Goose at the Tourist Centre and you can take your picture standing under it.  We did that but you don't want to see that.   I took this photo of Magpie High Falls just outside Wawa.  It was quite impressive.

The sign explains it all.  This waterfall can be magestic one minute and nothing another if the hydro company decides to change the flow.

Join Jan, our host at Straight of the Camera Sunday at Murrieta365.com.  Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  Valerie

I've never been to Wawa, but I love your photos. The warning sign is very clear about the danger.

Great shots and thanks for visiting today. It's always helpful to have clear and direct signs to prevent bad things from happening.

I love waterfalls of all kinds! Interesting how it can change so quickly. It must be something to be there when that happens.

What a beautiful waterfall, and photo. Terrific capture!

I was in Wawa a long, long time ago and remember the goose...but not these lovely falls. I hope you had a wonderful time!

I spent most of a summer in southern Ontario when I was young and wild, but I didn't see much of the countryside. This waterfall is beautiful! The warning sign is appropriate and clear, I would certainly stand back!
Thanks for showing some of your world and visiting my blog; I hope you will return sometime.
BTW, I read the post about your morning walk, I had no idea there were so many varieties of clematis! Your arty shot is very good, as well.
Blessings!

Wow, very impressive.

Love the waterfall, how majestic! I would have liked to see the picture of you and your husband and the goose, too!

Lynn said...

Gorgeous! Sitting here in Texas' hot n dry August makes one long for any reminder of cool, flowing water.

The dramatic power of water. Very nice shot.

Ewa said...

great photo, but when you look at beauty like that you have to remember about danger it can bring

The first shot is awesome!

So interesting that the falls can be manipulated as the sign shows.
I have to confess Val, I didn't read your whole title and had to look again because I was trying to find a magpie somewhere. :-)
