Camera Movement

As I progress further and further along my journey through photography, I find myself leaning more and more into the very creative and artistic side and way less into the technical side. Camera movement is one such piece of the artistic and creative vision. It is a very simple technique yet one I have done very seldom. For this I simply sat the camera on a solid surface, set a small aperture and as a result a longer shutter speed and then moved the camera horizontally as I was pressing the shutter button.

Moody Piers

Sunrise just did not happen this morning at the old piers in Grimsby, Ontario, but before the rains started there was some nice light.

Pathway Closed

This has been a crazy weekend of weather here in southern Ontario. High winds, driving sleet, freezing rain and snow have all been mixed together. The wind created some spectacular waves at Spencer Smith Park here in Burlington on the shores of Lake Ontario.

Favourite Images of 2017

The 2nd image of my favourites of 2017 is a shot of the old Caledonia Mill in Caledonia, Ontario.
 
I shot this on a very windy day and this particular exposure is 2 minutes long. I used the Big Stopper from Lee Filters since I shot this in the afternoon.
 
This mill was built in 1846 and is the last timber framed water powered mill along the Grand River in Ontario. There were rumours of its demise in 2017 but it still stands.
 
Shot on the Canon 5D MK III with the 17-40mm lens. Shot at ISO 100, f22 and 120 second exposure.

Ships in The Mist

This morning, the air temperature was very cold, so there was an unusual mist on Lake Ontario that looked like clouds on the water. I stood on the balcony of my condo to photograph these 2 ships waiting to enter Burlington Bay.

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my followers here on my blog! Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday!
