31. Oak Hall Under Moonlight

20070331.jpg

This is a photo of Oak Hall with the moon in the background. Oak hall was once the home of Sir Harry Oakes and in located just above Niagara Falls.

This large mansion is now home of the Niagara Parks Commision which manages the park area near the Niagara Falls, and also a fun little 9 hole, par three golf course.

Across the street is Marineland.

29. Canada Goose

20070329.jpg

Bird, artichoke, butterfly wing were all guesses I received in regards to my What is it posts over the past two days. Bird was correct. Canada Goose to be exact.

There is a park not too far from my house where the geese, ducks and gulls congregate, mostly to be fed by people I expect. They are generally very docile and calm around people which allowed me to get within just a few feet of them to get the shots for the past two days.

I think I might try the 'What is it' theme again in the future. Thanks for participating!

28. What is this, Part 2.

20070328.jpg

I'll give everyone another try at identifying, more accurately, the subject of this photo.

27. What could it be?

20070327.jpg

Any Guesses on what this could be?

On Monday I had a few prints in a Juried Photo show at the Roselawn Art Center in Port Colborne, ON. Two of the three were chosen for display, while one of those two (Yellow Slipper) was chosen as 2nd place in the Nature/Scenic Category.

Both prints will be on display, either at the Roselawn Art Center or the Port Colborne Library.

While out with John on Sunday, I grabbed this photo looking down the tracks at an old railway bridge.

24. Swan in Take Off

20070324.jpg

This is a series of shots I took of this swan as it took off from a local river on the weekend. I panned across the river to follow the swan as it was in motion then put the images together to create this start to finish composite.

21. Morning and Two Trees

20070321.jpg

I love this sunrise. We found these trees a few months ago, set on a small rising hill, exactly what we wanted. Even better, we knew that if we could get them with the sun rising behind them, we just had to wait for the right time.

This was shot about 20 minutes before the sun even broke the horizon.

19. George and the Bicycle Kick

20070319.jpg

I have been playing soccer most of my life. Soccer is played and watched the world over. I took this photo of George yesterday at my final playoff game for the winter season. Won't be long before we are playing outside again.

18. Cat and Rosemary

20070318.jpg

My cat, who is now 15 years old, when he is not outside doing whatever it is cats do when they are on the prowl likes to sit in my front window and gaze out at the world around him. I couldn't resist this photo of him sitting beside my small rosemary bush. Just prior to me snapping this photo he was looking straight at the rosemary... a much better photo.

13. Crack in the Ice

20070313.jpg

Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice
Appears under your feet...

As soon as I titled this photo, The Thin Ice by Pink Floyd started playing on the radio in my head. Don't mind when it happens with a song I enjoy, such as The Thin Ice, but really hate it when a song I don't like makes it to my internal radio station.

12. Authentic African Mask

20070312.jpg

Well, I don't know how authentic they are, but these are sold in a souvenir shop on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls. I am pretty sure Native Canadians didn't wear these...but everything can be a souvenir in Niagara Falls!

08. Spring Tulip

20070308.jpg

The small flower pots I bought last week have started to bloom. I was shocked that the tulips actually bloomed, there are 3 bulbs crammed into a four inch pot. As you can see in this photo, the tulip is just starting to bloom.

07. Picket Fence

20070307.jpg

The weather has been cold and uninviting for a long time. Though I have been shooting at home, I am running out of images to post. I have some flower growing in the front window that are starting to bloom, so maybe I can get a shot of those soon.

I think wood ducks are one of the most beautiful birds. Their colours are amazing. This is a reflection of a wood duck.
