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.

Super Seven for 2017

I belong to a wonderful group of photographers known as OFFBEAT. (offbeatphoto.ca)

Every year we are asked to post our “Super Seven” or our seven favourite images from the year.

These are mine.

 

Vevey Museum & Light

I had the day off today here in Switzerland, so I drove up to Zermatt to view the Matterhorn. On the way I saw some dramatic light near Vevey and stopped for a short time. There is a beautiful museum in the town as well.

Old Church

I am currently in Germany for a couple of days. This afternoon I had an opportunity to go for a short walk in the village of Bulstringen. There is this amazing old Evangelical church in town. I could not find any historic info on it, but it is very cool!
