Hidden Eden Muskoka – Outdoors, Wildlife and Nature Photography and Art.
Hidden Eden was created during the winter of 2013-2014, mainly as a personal website for documenting our house-hunting adventures and the new life we found in the Gravenhurst-Bracebridge Ontario area. The abundant Muskoka wildlife, outdoors, scenery and nature certainly keeps my camera busy! Other bigger and much more busy projects, candid and sport photography, and a children’s book in the works, occupy a lot of my time too but I am now finally building this site as it was always intended. For 2018 and onward this will be the new look for Hidden Eden. I hope this new site will make it easier to keep up with posting and to improve the display of nature, wildlife, outdoors and landscape photos and artwork. Please consider subscribing to the site so you can be notified any time new posts are made.
The original Hidden Eden site, was supposed to be a short-term solution to getting a site online quickly but it lasted several years. The old version of the site has been turned into an archive and will remain online for the nature and wildlife photos and posts created between 2013 and 2016.

Perhaps my fascination with these ice formations comes from the fact that they look like they are trying to grow into something recognizable, as can happen with clouds sometimes, so I become absorbed... READ MORE
