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.

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.

 

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!

Cootes Bay Sky

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.
ISO – 100
f13
221 Second Exposure (Bulb Mode)
21mm Focal Length

Monochromatic Yukon

I was having a look back at some images taken in the Yukon last year and I found a few that I had not really paid attention to during my initial editing. I really love the sky in this one!
