I've divided this section about the province where I live into six geographical parts plus a cruise. The web pages for each part provide more details.
Toronto is the capital of Ontario, Canada's largest city, and my home. Photos in this section show some of the major landmarks, like the CN Tower, some of the parks and recreation areas along its Lake Ontario shoreline, and a few other modern and older highlights that have caught my attention. Toronto page
Southern Ontario is where most of the province's population lives. I've chosen to feature Stratford, a small city with beautiful parks and an internationally renowned theatre company, three places along the north shore of Lake Ontario, and images of autumn colours. Southern Ontario page
The Niagara Peninsula is famous for The Falls, but there's a great deal more. Niagara's parks extend all along the river, and are studded with natural wonders and horticultural showcases. The river is a major source of hydro-electric power, and there's a thriving new wine industry. The bloodiest battles of the War of 1812 were here, and there are reminders everywhere. Niagara Peninsula page
The Central Ontario section features the huge Algonquin Park, Canada's first provincial park and a pioneer in developing visitor services and preservation programs. Also: fall colours in the picturesque Muskoka and Haliburton regions and in towns on the Trent-Severn Waterway. Central Ontario page
The Georgian Bay section includes lake and cottage country scenery, unique geological formations, and two historical village recreations. Georgian Bay page
The Kawartha Cruise section is based on a 5-day cruise that cuts across Central Ontario following the Trent-Severn Waterway from Peterborough to Big Cute near Georgian Bay. It features the civil engineering triumphs of the lock and canal builders of the early 1900s and the rugged beauty of Kawartha cottage country and the Canadian Shield. Kawartha Cruise page
South-Eastern Ontario is noted for its Thousand Islands vacation area and the St. Lawrence Seaway. This region has a colourful and important history, as reflected at Upper Canada Village and at Fort Henry in Kingston. South‑Eastern Ontario page
The Northern Ontario section contains images from two rail adventures, a fall day trip in the forest north of Algonquin from North Bay to Temagami, and a six-day expedition to Moosonee and Moose Factory on the south shore of James Bay. Northern Ontario page
