Sitting on the edge of the Scarborough Bluffs, Guildwood Park is a unique wetland environment within the city of Toronto. On its other boundaries, the park is surrounded by a couple of large apartment buildings, a high school, and the former Guild Inn grounds.
Many of the photos here are in black and white, which is quite intentional. Although they were originally in color, they just look better in monochrome. Sometimes, color distracts too much from the essence of the photo. In addition, plain prose seemed wholly innapropriate for some photos.
April 2000, Guildwood Village, Toronto, Canada
Pileated woodpecker spotted in woods behind the high school. This was a hard bird to photograph since it spent most of its time hammering at the base of the tree stump.
Another time when I was walking through the park, I noticed some wood chips on the petals of some Trilliums at the base of an old tree. I heard some tapping. I looked up and saw a woodpecker not more than 2 meters above me.
