Road to the Light

One of the most amazing parts of the Faroe Islands was the ever changing light. You would be photographing something in one direction, look over in another direction and the light would be amazing! Or you would be driving through rain, come around a bend or over a hilltop and amazing light would appear before you!
 
I am calling this one Road to the Light.

WOW! February roars in like a lion! We are getting a pretty good winter storm here in Hamilton with quite a lot of snow and crazy winds! This is a shot from the street right near where I live. And this is before it started getting really bad!

At lunch today I took a drive through Ancaster and made a few stops. It was a winter wonderland out there! 🙂 One of my stops was along Sulphur Springs Road. This is a very pretty road during the fall and equally so in the winter!

Our street is completely torn up due to re construction of the sewers, water mains and then sidewalks and new asphalt. But for now and the next couple of months at least, it is a mud pit when it rains and a dust cloud when it isn’t.

Today was a long day of travel as I came home from Calgary. So I have decided to do a small cheat and post an image from my recent trip to Ireland. These trees are called the Dark Hedges and date from 300 years ago. It is a pretty amazing sight to see!

This afternoon I drove out along Sulphur Springs Road in Ancaster. It was pouring rain, which is perfect for what I wanted to do! A lesson to aspiring landscape & nature photographers…don’t hide inside when the weather isn’t cooperating. A little rain never hurt anyone!

So we will try this again if WordPress will actually work!

My journey from the hotel to the work site here in Argentina takes about 30 minutes depending on traffic and the level of craziness in the taxi driver. This morning I had a somewhat reasonable driver so I was able to get a few shots. This “classic automobile” was quite amusing especially with the large tires in the trunk!

I was driving around this evening after dinner and I came across the Route 66 Trailhead. Route 66 in this part of California is known as Foothill Blvd. They have a bridge and walking trails all throughout the area. I like the classic Route 66 sign on the bridge.
