This is part 3 of my camping trip to Killarney Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. After our day 2 sunrise shoot, we decided to hike to "The Crack". The Crack is a very steep crevasse through a quartzite rock which is about 355m above ground level. Park brochure mentioned that it offer a nice view of the whole Killarney park at the top.
We found many wild mushrooms of different colors on the forest bed. I wish I knew the names of these but I have zero knowledge of mushrooms! The only mushroom I know is button mushroom :) If you know the name of these, please leave a comment. I will update the image captions accordingly.
After about a 2 hour hike, we finally reached the top of The Crack. The view was amazing and offered a panoramic view of the whole Killarney park.
We had tortilla wraps at the top for our lunch and washed it down with some lemonade. By the time we reached back to the camp it was time for dinner. On the menu was pita with stir fried vegetables with chili and tomato sauce.
We didn't have any dramatic clouds or bright red sunset like we had on day one. I was still able to capture this shot which I thought reflected the very calm atmosphere of the evening. Our view of the sunset was covered by a mountain, so unless there were clouds to catch those golden colors, we had no chance of seeing it.
I have seen really cool lighted tent shots by high mountains in photo sharing sites. I wanted to attempt one of these shots. While we did not have a mountain or a valley background, I thought the surrounding trees would yield a surreal photo. For this shot, two of my friends were light painting the tent from inside using flashlights. Below is the final result, I really like the dark and scary atmosphere. Only missing thing is a big grisly bear standing up to tear down the tent! I am glad I missed that photo op :)
This was a rewarding day two but we were even more tired than the first day. Little did I know that day three would be the best of all! I will post all about it in my next and final post about this trip. Stay tuned!!!
