The sunset did not really materialize this evening down at Cootes Bay so I turned to something that I have started shooting over the last couple of years and really enjoy, long exposures. This shot was created using a Lee 10 Stop (The Big Stopper) and a Lee 3 Stop Soft Edge Graduated Neutral Density filter.
It felt so good to be behind the camera this evening. My hectic work schedule of late coupled with preparing to move at the end of September, has left me exhausted and with very little time to spend pursuing my passion. This evening I forced myself to head down to my favourite spot in Hamilton to photograph sunsets, Cootes Bay. And Mother Nature certainly did not disappoint!
I spent the day out near St. Jacobs, Ontario driving around and photographing. On my way home, since it had been such a nice day, I decided to stop in at Cootes Bay and wait for sunset. As usual I was not disappointed!
I went for a walk this morning to Bayfront Park in Hamilton. It was a reasonably nice morning. Lots of birds were flying about and collecting food. During my walk I came across this lonely tree by itself and as I was snapping the shots, a couple of birds flew into the frame.
