Life Through The Lens – Part II – August 2 Image

Normally when I head to Cootes Bay it is to photograph stunning sunsets. 

Well tonight was a wee bit different. A longer exposure and hardly any wind made the protected bay pretty calm. Since there was not much colour to speak of, I decided to play a bit in Silver Efex’s Pro, an add on I have for Lightroom. I love this program as it gives me so much control over all the different pieces of the image.

I spent a couple of hours today at Grindstone Marsh with a few other photographer friends enjoying a beautiful day outside! We hiked a fair bit of the marsh and saw quite a few different critters out and about. One of our friends spotted this frog on a log and he was quite photogenic!

Well it is not a great shot, but the full moon was certainly beautiful this evening. The unfortunate part was just as it was rising big, dark clouds had moved into the area and the skies opened up with some crazy rain and wind. Needless to say very few images were shot of the moon!
