Hilton Falls

Hilton Falls is located in the Halton Conservation Area about an hour out of Toronto. Last Sunday afternoon I drove out with a couple of friends from my photography club to photograph the falls. Now we photographers are a hardy bunch. We’ll trek, hike, climb, get up at ungodly hours to get the perfect shot and you won’t hear us complain (at least not much) but after close to an hour hike to get to to the Falls I was bitten head to toe by mosquitos and black flies. (It seems this is one of the worst seasons we’ve had in many years). Yes I complained and used not so nice language but after processing my images all that mattered was that I got the shot 🙂

  1. I’m sorry you had to suffer so much with the bugs, but I think it was worth it to come away with a gorgeous shot like that! You should come up to Grey County and do the waterfall tour. I think there are about 7 of them, and they’re all beautiful :).

  5. It’s easy for me to say, since I didn’t get bug bites, but this shot was worth it!

  7. Lovely photo Edith! I had an episode with flies onetime in Utah. We were on our way to a river and they started attacking us.. It’s funny now but not at the time.

    • Thank you so much and I know exactly what you mean. It wasn’t so funny last week and as soon as these bites stop itching I’ll forget all about it 🙂

    You did indeed get the shot!
    So apply that calamine lotion and smile with satisfaction at the beauty you captured.
    Thanks for sharing
