Getting a good photo at night is challenging. Finding the correct exposure takes a while and before you now it the clouds of blown in and your chance at the perfect shot is gone. I’m lucky enough to have a guy who doesn’t mind keeping me company (and juggling the lenses and lens caps and tripod and bags that I’m constantly asking him to hold for me) every time there’s a Super Moon or a really starry sky. I think I take the romance right out of a walk under the stars when I say “shut up for a second and don’t move,” so that nothing shakes during a 30 second exposure, haha!
So, this one is dedicated to my partner in crime. Thanks for putting up with me!
A small selection of images from summers past. I’m particularly proud of the shot of the fork lightning bolt striking Lake Ontario near the Burlington Skyway Bridge! What are you looking forward to this summer? Flowers? Thunder storms? Sunsets on quiet lakes? Walking the dog without having to put on long underwear? What are you favourite memories of summers past?
It’s always exciting to get a great shot of a bird of prey, and it can be difficult because they are very shy of people in the wild and don’t like to be approached. Some of these are lucky shots of wild birds and some are shots of captive birds at the Raptor Centre at Mountsberg Conservation area. Either way, they are such beautiful animals and a joy to photograph.
