This longish valley at the head of Lake Ontario is for the most part fairly narrow ( roughly 3 1/4 kilometres wide ); its broad mouth accommodates downtown Hamilton. Within these modest dimensions are found an unusual range and variety of landforms: steep conical hills, deep ravines, rugged Escarpment rock, ponds, marshes, streams, waterfalls, and gently rolling topography. A significant portion of the Valley is preserved as conservation land. The conservation areas are interlaced with trails that allow the public to experience first hand the essence and beauty of natural places. For more than two decades, Richard and Eleanore Kosydar have been drawn to capturing images of the natural landscapes of the Dundas Valey throughout the seasons. In this, their second collection of photographs on the valley, they explore in greater depth the extraordinary richness of its natural beauty."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
