Night Skies

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!

Spring In The Cold

Today’s post is a bit of a mish-mash of images.  I had a look through some photos I took the day of the 2013 ice storm and found some that I liked but never shared, so I’ve included them today (the Foreboding Road and Kelso Conservation Area)! There’s also a shot of the Burlington beach following the snow storm we had on the weekend.  The ice shelf doubled in size over night and if you live in Burlington it’s a sight to see! I’ve spoken to some people who have no idea that the ice shelf forms every winter (provided we have a few good storms with an east wind)!  That’s all very cold and icy, but I also had some pink tulips and thought I’d include a hazy, soft photo of them as well; A little hint of spring because right about now I’m sure a lot of you are sick of snow and ice. Happy Friday, everyone! Stay warm!

Ice And Fire

A couple of days after the ice storm of Christmas 2013 rolled through Southern Ontario, the sun came out, and ice met fire for some lovely photos!
