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!

Today we are getting freezing rain to mix in with the snow from yesterday. Canadian winters…gotta love em!

A bit of a snowy day today here in Burlington. But nice to go for a walk.

I am posting my image early today as this will be my last post for a couple of weeks. Tonight I fly to South America and in a couple of days board the One Oceans ship Vavilov and head to the Antarctic! I will be completely off the grid for a couple of weeks, a refreshing change to be sure. 

This mornings image comes from Spencer Smith Park here in Burlington as ice is forming along the shores of Lake Ontario now. 

Be safe and I will see you all in a couple of weeks!

Sometimes you have to shoot low key. A cold morning today down at the pier.

Something a bit different today. These are pieces of ice starting to form at the edge of Lake Ontario. However I did not like the way it turned out so I changed it into something far more abstract.

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to 2018!

The 3rd iteration of my Life Through The Lens project starts today. For the month of January I have chosen Ice & Wildlife as my themes. The reason for this choice will become clear in a few days. For my first image I was out late this afternoon looking for Snowy Owls. After speaking with a couple of photographer friends, I drove down to behind the St Catharines hospital, which used to be a popular location for them, and sure enough they are back! I spent some time hoping they would fly, but only spotted one off in the distance and could not get any decent shots of him. I would have spent longer, however the weather was changing for the worse and I wanted to head home. 

Don’t forget if you want to get a chance to win a print from any image taken in the month of January, you have to share my images as often as possible. You can head over to my Facebook page at:

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.
