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

A Beautiful Evening

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!

Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

Several years ago I started a project I called “Imagine”. The purpose of this project was to entice Canadians to see more of Canada by showing them images of some of the beautiful places in Canada and asking them to “Imagine” what it would be like if they were standing in that spot. I have always thought that so many Canadians tend to travel to the Caribbean, or to Mexico or the US instead of staying here in our incredibly beautiful county. There is so much to see and do in this country and yet so few Canadians actually “see” it.
 
In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday I have put together a video of images I have taken across Canada. I hope you enjoy these images and that you can visit some of the stunning places that these images come from.
 
Happy 150th Birthday Canada!!
 

Amazing Light!

WHOA! Today is was dull, rainy and overcast almost all day up here on Lake Huron. But about an hour before sunset, Mother Nature decided to give us a treat with some amazing light!

Only in Canada eh? Pity

Last night I was out at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park with some other photographer buddies. It was a great evening with a beautiful sky!

Since it is getting close to Canada’s 150th birthday I thought I would celebrate a bit early!

If Canada ever needed to prove it has the world’s best backyard…
