Join us for a weekend of photography and fun as we photograph waterfalls and explore the shores of Georgian Bay. We are very excited to share some of the landscapes in and around the region of Owen Sound and 4 beautiful waterfalls - Inglis, Eugenia, Jones and Indian Falls. After dark we will have some fun with night photography, including panting with light and pin wheel photography.

We will be touring via our own private coach and staying at the Best Western at the harbour in Owen Sound. We are looking forward to sharing a fun weekend with everyone.

O3C Waterfalls Weekend Photo Tour Itinerary - May 11th and 12th, 2024

Saturday, May 11th, 2024: Our early morning departure will see us arrive at Eugenia Falls near Fleasherton mid morning. We will start our day at Eugenia Falls. We will break for lunch close to Owen Sound and then visit our next locaton Inglis waterfalls which flows into downtown Owen Sound via the Sydenham River. This location used to be home to the Inglis family. Inglis built his mill with two runs of stones. After the mill was completed, he constructed a dam to hold water in order produce enough power to run a saw mill. Later, the enterprising Inglis added a carding and woollen mill to site. Our second of of four waterfalls this weekend.

Sunday, May 12th, 2024: Breakfast, check-out of our hotel and head to Indian Falls for our first photo loaction of the morning. The 15 metre high waterfall was formed by the erosion of soft Queenston shale beneath hard Manitoulin dolomite, in a manner similar to Niagara Falls. In the springtime until early summer there is a nice flow of water. There is a trail leading the falls from the packing look. Please make sure to have a pair of hiking shoes or good runners. The hike is about 20 minutes each way.
