The Thousand Islands Parkway in Ontario, Canada, sets the scene for a breathtaking display of nature’s power, as an impending storm looms in the distance. Dark clouds gather overhead, casting an eerie, yet mesmerizing, atmosphere over the landscape. The road, lined with lush foliage on either side, stretches onward into the unknown, seemingly vanishing into the dark horizon.
Vehicles cautiously navigate the parkway, their headlights cutting through the encroaching darkness, while a walking path meanders alongside. The wind picks up, rustling the leaves of the trees, and signaling the approach of turbulent weather. Amidst the chaos, a solitary cottage stands resilient, its presence a testament to human fortitude in the face of the elements.
Photographer Duncan Rawlinson captures the essence of the approaching tempest, with dramatic skies and the striking contrast between the dark clouds and the vibrant greens of the landscape. The photograph, taken during Fall 2020 in Ontario, immortalizes a moment of anticipation – a dark prelude on the Parkway – as the forces of nature prepare to unleash their fury. https://Duncan.co/dark-prelude-on-the-parkway
