Trey, I agree a watermark won't deter theft however when someone not as popular as you puts their work out there it makes it easy for people to find you. I simply drop my URL in very faintly so people can find me since things get passed around so easily. Your work is quite recognizable and you are fortunate to have such a large audience that anything used outside of creative commons will be ratted out.

There is a very good business case that can be made for chasing the "bottom feeders" down and applying advanced Ninja tactics to get them to pay for their copyright infringements. And rightly so! I suspect this is a decent revenue stream opportunity for many photographers to monetize if they so desired. Just based on how many of my own photos have been pilfered yours would be exponential. Perhaps like a watermark it interferes with the creative work or its just part of the secret sauce of revenue generation.

Muskoka is a sanctuary, a place where we can rejuvenate ourselves, a place to think. Not everyone understands this and for those of us that do we protect and cherish it deeply.  The trails are littered with freshly fallen leaves and the canopy’s that remain are golden browns and yellows. It is a great time of year to get out for a walk and breathe the crisp, fresh Muskoka air. The photo was taken at the Artful Garden

- The Last Boat Standing -
The sun was dropping rapidly as we approached Gravenhurst after spending 12 hours on-board the Segwun steamship during The 100 Mile Cruise in Muskoka. Hundreds of beautiful heritage boats followed us on our journey this day and now at the duration there was one last boat tracking us on the final journey.

It was the Edith II a 26 ft. Fay & Bowden circa 1905, recently brought back to life by Dukes in Port Carling. As the Edith II ran up beside us I was surprised to see my friend and infamous Muskoka photographer Bev McMullen shooting us as we waved frantically. Well, what to do but grab the camera and shoot back.

This past weekend I had the privilege to board the 125 year old RMS Segwun steamship and take part in the 100 Mile Cruise. This historic event was last run in 1958. Here are a few pics of the journey which departed Gravenhurst, Ontario at 8:30am and returned 12 hours later.

Traveling from Lake Rosseau into the Indian River towards the locks in Port Carling, Muskoka. If you have ever made this trip you will probably remember seeing this nautical styled boathouse at the mouth
