  3. 3. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 1ST PRIZE PHOTO CONTEST WINNER NAME: Rob B LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Bluffs STORY: “Mother Nature at her finest” Photo taken on October 20, 2020 an hour before sunset. Lake Ontario, it’s beautiful natural shoreline and our wonderful Bluffers Park with one of the cleanest swimmable beaches in the GTA. I have been a Cliffcrest resident since 1983.
  4. 4. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 2ND PRIZE PHOTO CONTEST WINNER NAME: Gord W LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Bluffs STORY: “Misty Morning Reflections” Tending to my business one foggy morning quiet enough to hear the ripple from the water, looked up a saw a mast ghosting along from behind the docked boats. Pulled out my cell phone in time to capture this picture of a fellow members sailboat exposed down the channel of boats, in the background the fog covered Bluffs tree lined shore …. tranquil. Lucky to have this spot hidden in the middle of the city.
  5. 5. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 3rd PRIZE PHOTO CONTEST WINNER NAME: Paul S LOCATION OF PHOTO: Cliffcrest STORY: "Red Fox at magic hour“ It always pays to keep your camera in hand when walking through the parks found along The Bluffs neighbourhoods. This beautiful mature red fox put on quite a show just after sunrise. There is no end to the great sights that can be discovered in these neighbourhoods.
  6. 6. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION PHOTO NAME: Dan T LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Village STORY: “Oh DEER me … what a lovely picture!” I capture this picture walking across Hill and Bellhaven Crescent. The single Red Deer stood out among the snow covered evergreens caught my eye. My thoughts gathered to the abundance of wildlife and White Tailed Deer often seen walking their trails through our neighbourhood, very unlike this still and uniquely positioned Red Deer among our suburban forest.
  7. 7. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION PHOTO NAME: Gigi W LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Village, Doris McCarthy Trail STORY: “The Bluffs” A beautiful day at the bluffs at the bottom of the Doris McCarthy Trail. Fall is here not cold yet or in full colour . As we look up we feel the warm breeze in our hair, we see the breeze blow through the tuffs on the grass, and we feel tranquil. The sky is blue its a fantastic day, even though we are in the middle of a pandemic it is nice to be able to walk on the trails in the middle of a huge City.
  8. 8. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION PHOTO NAME: Sheila C LOCATION OF PHOTO: Kingston Road & Brimley Road “HAV A NAP MOTEL” The Kingston Road strip..... not forgotten.
  9. 9. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION PHOTO NAME: Vicki S LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Bluffs STORY: "Follow Me" I took this photo at Bluffers Park Marina. I often visit the park throughout the year to take many photos. It is a natural delight since every time I visit, I find new and beautiful parts to enjoy and photograph.
  10. 10. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION STORY NAME: Nazia I LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Village, Doris McCarthy Trail STORY: “Hiding in plain sight” I'm submitting a photo taken while on one of many walks down the Doris McCarthy Trail during this pandemic. What a breathtaking view! Since March my husband and I have discovered all sorts of trails around the area and beyond. We moved to our current home just over 7 years ago and honestly, I can't believe this beauty was “hiding in plain sight” the whole time! It took the pandemic for us to find. Whether just a straight walk down the hill to the opening of the lake, skipping rocks by the water with our boys, or walking all the way east toward the Guild, Doris McCarthy is frequented by our family at least twice a month now. During this time especially, the crash of waves, the sound of the many birds, or even the sight of majestic swans has had a lasting effect of calm on us, allowing us to escape the tension of these unprecedented times.
  11. 11. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION STORY NAME: Francine N LOCATION OF PHOTO: Scarborough Bluffs STORY: “Majestic Moments” On December 26, 2020 I had the most delightful experience to witness a bundle of deer exploring the Scarborough Bluffs. What a mesmerizing experience! The deer not only took my breath away but, I was humbled to see such beauty in our beautiful city and community. I posted my experience and photos in the Birch Cliff Community Facebook Group and two members suggested that I enter this contest. I have never entered a photo contest and I have a deep love of photography from my father.
  12. 12. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION STORY NAME: Gail M LOCATION OF PHOTO: Cliffcrest STORY: ”Last Rose of Summer” I often walk around my neighbourhood for fresh air and exercise appreciating the trees and well- tended gardens. One particular home has such gorgeous dahlias and roses in the fall and I took this shot of The Last Rose of Summer. Rather poignant like autumn - a last burst of color. PS. I walked by in late spring as well and actually met the owner who was delighted to chat and show me the property. The corner garden has a black wrought iron fence that blooms cascade from. She is the original owner of the home.
  13. 13. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION STORY NAME: David B LOCATION OF PHOTO: Cliffcrest STORY: “Pensive Stance” The coyote was approximately forty feet away and was following my wife and I while walking our dogs. It was near Brimley Road on the West side of the McCowan Park Trail. The area is undeveloped city property behind an industrial complex where there is a large swath of natural grasses and bush. While on the walk, we saw a second coyote circling farther away through the grass area. This is a beautiful wild area where we walk the dogs and frequently see wildlife on those walks.
  14. 14. Cliffcrest Scarborough Village SW Residents Association Inaugural Nature Photo Contest 2020/2021 HONORABLE MENTION STORY NAME: Joan H LOCATION OF PHOTO: Cliffcrest STORY: “Visitors in my garden” This year has been a little crazy in my garden starting with the birth of two fawns in my side yard in May and continuing all through the summer. it has kept our spirits up watching for new activity. The deer came to our sheltered side yard. Three stood guard while Mum gave birth to these beautiful fawns. The neighbourhood has been watching the development of our babies, and they are now fully established in the herd. We are truly blessed to share our special neighbourhood with these beautiful gentle creatures
