Lonely Boulder, Georgian Bay

It was dusk as we made our way to Bridget's cottage the day I arrived. We stopped at a park near the shore to take some photos and this boulder was out in the middle of nowhere amongst the grasses on the way to the water. It seemed lonely, like it was too far from the rocks, trees and light on the distant hill. Painting it seemed like the right thing to do. And thus began the interest I had in rocks and boulders for the rest of the trip.
