Default Interesting Park

Yesterday I discovered this park. Its off the bike path a bit so I go by it all the time without having noticed it. Lots of sculpted old hydro poles done by a great Canadian sculpture Dorsey James. Here is a spot with three of his works and a nice place to rest. Ten minutes after the pic was taken my son and I were soaked to the skin from a really heavy rainfall.

Hi Bynx

Wow, really interesting park and idea to shape the old hydro poles. (I've seen some trees done like that here in Australia, but never hydro poles). Very effective.

Your son (I take it that's him) sitting on the seat adds another layer of interest (he's enough far away to let the viewer think "who's that guy... why is he sitting there, etc"). Also as the photo is quite symetrical (except for him), that's cool. Nice.

Ah, I can see the threatening clouds... which did soak you (as promised). The ground looks very dry (and 'light coloured'). Is it dry where you are, or is it sort of sandy?

Thanks for sharing this part you found. You go riding a fair bit from what I guess!?

Paul

Thanks guys. Simon, what stages did I do? I dont follow.
For more of this great park art work check out this http://www.homeplace.ca/index.htm
I will be posting my own take on his sculptures as soon as I have them organized.
Oh its not that dry here Paul. But the trail is made up of crushed gravel giving it a grey dry look. We have had lots and lots of rain this year.

Great find! I keep a list of places I want to go and I've just added this one. Their web-site is an unusual design but it would have been nice if their link to mapquest actually pointed at the park. mentioning pickering wouldn't have been out-of-place either.

but, that aside, very interesting concept. thanks for sharing this with us (well... me).

The park is situated right behind the Pickering Nuclear Power Station. Whenever you decide to go Frank let me know and I can meet you there.

Oh my bad. Its a 2 shot HDR. First time really shooting with the Nikon and having forgotten my glasses I really was shooting blind. After assembly I put it through Topaz.
