Ontario

Area: 1,076,395 km²

Population: 12,439,755 Density: 12.94 /km²

Ontario is too large and too diverse to simply cover all at once. Those who have seen the other two Magnificent Canada threads may have noticed I tend to focus on natural beauty over culture and urban form. I also try to find images that are unusual or unique, and that represent parts of the country that may not be well known. I hope these pics change some peoples perspectives. If not, then just enjoy.



Ontario Mountains... the La Cloche range and Killarney Provincial Park









Algoma Region



Georgian Bay







Algonquin





Northwestern Ontario




Muskokas/Haliburton/kawarthas



Wasaga Beach... longest freshwater beach in the world


Ottawa



Far North




Random





I'll end with a pic of a place we're all familiar with, but I guess I should mention it...



...thanks to any forumers whom I may have borrowed from. DrJoe has a bunch in there. Consider me as a photojockey, but don't say 'PJ'... that sounds terrible.

Wow! Ontario is so much more beautiful than it is given credit for! Thanks for enlightening me to this natural beauty. We have such a spectacular country, regardless of all the horrible politics that are attempting to exacerbate an already volatile and fragile unity.
VIVE LE CANADA!

Very nice...Ontario is probably the most underrated province as far as natural beauty goes. Definitely has a certain ruggedness to it.

we got some here which are comparable to it..
I'm sorry, you're absolutely right. I thought you were referring to all the litle islands in the Baltic Sea, but there are many freshwater lakes and islands around the Stockholm area that are identical to this. My mistake!

the best view in ontario would be in the town of mattawa, ontario...the city is located about 70 km east of north bay and it is on the border of ontario and quebec right beside the mattawa river.....the town is built on a steep valley heading to the river and on the quebec side all you see are beautiful rolling mountains covered with trees
