Sometimes I like to get "Artsy"!

Wine Tours

Went on 2 wine tours yesterday. Very enjoyable and super informative.

The weather held off, but was a bit cool.

Captured this one in the vineyard!

I updated this with a crop!

It was another beautiful day, so I went back to the waterfall.

This time I took a tripod, ND filter, and cable release for my big camera.

This is 4 seconds @ f22, ISO 100.

Ran it through DXO to enrich the colours.

Day trip

Couldn't have been a better day for my birthday.

Found this place after talking to my best friend.

Love the serenity around the sounds of running water over rocks!

Beautiful day today so I couldn't resist a drive.

Waterfalls are one of my favourites to photograph!

Back to the real world!

Vacation was very relaxing.

This is a view from the yard the other evening.

Got playing with the Lensbaby today!

Too early for Fall and leaves to turn.


Day trip yesterday was not a complete loss.

The Mill was closed so I couldn't photograph Tooth in Time like I wanted, but got this instead.

Since I enjoy working in black and white, I included it, too!

Studio Gone

My studio is no more. Turned it into a scrapbooking room for my wife and daughter.

I am now shooting "wherever I can."

This shot was done in my backyard, with natural light.

A Walk in the Woods

Peaceful and cooler in the humidity yesterday, the walk in the woods allowed me to escape to nature and see things.

Storm gone by

The storm was over.

Huge hailstones on the ground.

The sky was still very heavy.

Old Fence

Saw this a couple of days ago and had to go back with my camera.

They remind me of the style of fence from Civil War days.

Black and White is a treatment of choice.

Storm Coming

Shot this through the car window with my iPhone as I drove to Grand Bend to get my daughter.

Wish I had had my better camera but it's not always with me.

Hard to believe it is almost three years since I took this photograph.

Started to pour rain right after I was done.

Hope to do more of this again soon.

Ah, Spring at last!

My backyard gives me a lot of pleasure, and colour, too!

Loved this tree trunk!

There is something to be said about being at the right place at the right time. But, there is always waiting for the right moment!

Reflection adds a lot.

Framing with overhanging branches helps.

Waiting for the stretched neck to create a nice "S" curve from bottom left to top right with the lighted colour really does it!

A Rose for a Champion

My daughter's coach gave each girl on the team a rose before heading to Nationals in Calgary.

They were third after their first skate and finished Gold, National champions.

Congratulations to Synchronicity Intermediate!

People can be fun

People can be fun - especially when they get into the right mood.

I don't get to shoot people often, but I really enjoy the interaction with another human.

Having fun in a photo session is just a matter of being yourself - your real self.

Be crazy, relax, have fun!

Use What You Have

I don't always have my big camera with me.

As I left the dog-groomers the other morning, this is what I saw coming out the door.

All I had was my iPhone. Yes, the picture would have been better on my best camera, but at least I captured the image.
