Life Through The Lens – Part III – February 22 Image

A little late on my post from yesterday. My version of Lightroom that I have on my work PC would not recognize the RAW files from my new Canon M10 camera. So I could not do anything with the images until today. 

I drove around late yesterday afternoon in the Romulus, Michigan area looking for sunset locations. I had thought I found a park on Google Maps that looked to be perfect for sunset but the bridge on the road leading too it was washed out so I could not get to the park. So I stopped alongside the road and shot this.

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!

A shot taken out of my hotel room window here in Panama. Yesterday I changed hotels since my original hotel was simply too far from where I was working. This new hotel is much more convenient.

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. 

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.

Ships in The Mist

This morning, the air temperature was very cold, so there was an unusual mist on Lake Ontario that looked like clouds on the water. I stood on the balcony of my condo to photograph these 2 ships waiting to enter Burlington Bay.
