A few weeks ago (March 8) I posted about some of my favourite waterfalls in southern and southwestern Ontario. I gave a bit of detail on how I go about photographing the various falls, and some of the danger to be aware of.
On this post I want to share some of the waterfalls a bit farther east and north.
This first one is High Falls, northeast of Peterborough. Several years ago I went in with others to see it. It was at least a kilometre from the road and I don't think I could get to it again since it wasn't along any particular access trail.

A bit northeast of Sudbury is Onaping Falls, which drops about 150 feet in a series of drops. One of the Group Of Seven, A. Y. Jackson, used this site for the subject of a painting on canvas. The next image was taken from the A. Y. Jackson lookout.
East of North Bay, half way to Mattawa is the Eau Claire Gorge Conservation Area, which features the Eau Claire waterfall. It is difficult to photograph, since about the only vantage point is right at the top and much of the cascade goes too close and under the viewing point. Nonetheless it is impressive to see, especially with a large volume of water flowing.
