Hardcover · 152 pages

Released: March 2016
Imagine more than 1800 islands dotting the waters along some 50 miles (80 kilometers) of the St. Lawrence River. Envision stunning terrain, shapes, and colors – and hear the sounds of bass jumping, water rushing, and breezes blowing. Join world-renowned photographer George Fischer as he takes you on a personal tour of the distinctive Thousand Islands Region. He defines it as a playground for tourists and cottagers; an artery for massive lakers and comfortable tour boats; and a recreation area for paddlers, swimmers, and water skiers. As you drift through the pages at your leisure, you’ll be enchanted by George’s unique perspective – and find your own inspiration.
George Fisher was awarded Best Tourism Photography by the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) for his image of the Thousand Islands that appeared on the front cover of the New York Sunday Times Travel section, July 2016.
