We chose nature photos for our website because we did not feel that sad people would want to see photos of happy people and happy people would not want to see photos of sad people. Therefore we have chosen pleasant and calming photos taken in Ottawa and the surrounding areas. In some way they represent the topic but others are just for amusement value. Our contributing photographer is Wayne Millar of Ottawa. Visit more of Wayne's photos at pbase.com/millway/
