Cannon Knitting Mill

Yesterday I wandered to a few of the sites in Hamilton, Ontario that were part of the Doors Open 2018 event. This event happens every year and is great for those wanting to see the inside of buildings that are usually not accessible to the general public.

My favourite stop of the day was the old Cannon Knitting Mills on Mary Street. The original foundry building was built in 1854 and additions were made in 1910 and 1911-1922. There is certainly no lack of interesting images in this building!

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.

Life Through The Lens – Part III – February 17 Image

As many times as I have photographed Niagara Falls, this is the first time I have gone at sunrise. Mother Nature did not disappoint! The mighty Horseshoe Falls at its grandest!

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.

These are mine.

 

September Sunrise

I awoke early this morning to rain, but decided to head down to the Burlington waterfront to meet up with other photographers in hopes of Mother Nature easing up on the rain. Well she did and although the sun did not make much of an appearance, the sky was wonderful!
