25. Morning Glow

20080225.jpg

The glow of the warm morning sun reflects off the cold snow. This photograph depicts the contrast often felt in winter, cold as the snow and wind chill and the warmth of the sunlight beating down on your face.

24. Frozen Lake

20080224.jpg

We had a nice, cold, clear day Sunday morning. The weather made for a good sunrise out at the lakeside.

This photograph was shot near Fort Erie overlooking Lake Erie toward Buffalo.

20. Rose #3

20080220.jpg

This photo is similiar to yesterday's but the main rose is a little closer and the background roses, a little more out of focus.

18. Rose

20080218.jpg

I bought Leanne a bouquet of roses and gave them to her on our way to Ottawa where they stayed in our hotel room. One morning while she was getting ready, I took a few minutes to photograph them.

This is one of those photos. It was lit by window light by the morning light coming in to our room filtered by sheer drapes.

16. April Wine #1

20080216.jpg

While in Ottawa, we heard April Wine would be playing a free concert on the Rideau Canal. Leanne and I first saw April Wine together about 15 years ago so thought it might be fun to go see them again. They still put on a pretty good show.

We got there a little late, but still before they went on. We had a tough time finding seats but did find a good place to watch from where we could stand and see them unobstructed. I have a decent ability to navigate my way through a crowd so left Leanne watching while I went up to get some photos. Navigating a crowd full of people with backpacks on is much harder than without them.

I did get up pretty close and was able to get some nice shots of the band. Unfortunately I was not in a position to catch Jerry Mercer on the drums...I love his solo's.

15. Stomping Tom Connors

20080215.jpg

This is a snow sculpture of Stompin Tom Connors shot at Winterlude in Ottawa/Gatineau. They have the snow sculpture competion between the provinces every year. This year Quebec won.

Sculpted to the back of this were two hockey players, a goalie and another player. An obvious tribute to one of Stompin' Tom's most famous songs, The Hockey Song.

13. Roof and Moon #2

20080213.jpg

This is the second shot of this roof and the moon. I really like photographs with the moon visible in daytime photos.

Again, shot at Canada's Parliament. This is the recently renovated Parliamentary Library. When Leanne and I were there last, the top of the structure had been removed and was sitting on the grass beside the building as part of the renovation.

09. Self Portrait

20080209.jpg

While shooting with Dave on Saturday, we had pretty flat light. With not much interesting to shoot, I set myself up in front of the tripod and shot the most interesting subject I know. Me.

Processed this with an image viewer that I use (FastStone Image Viewer). It is a great viewer with a lot of function, though I am not sure if it was a result of the viewer or a poor original but this looks a little overexposed. I will reprocess it in my regular editor and compare the results.

06. Orchid

20080206.jpg

I was out with my father the other night at the Niagara Parks Floral Showcase (the greenhouse) where we took some photos of their many orchids.

Having shot orchids in the wild this was definitely not exciting, but the are still pretty nonetheless.

Some of my wild orchid shots:
Showy
Yellow Slipper
Spotted Tongue
Hat and Curls

05. Cold

20080205.jpg

I went out with my father last week. We missed the best part of the light, even though there wasn't much direction to it anyway. This is from that shoot.

I have shot this location in the past, but it hasn't looked like this. Most recently, my photo of John was shot here.

01. Snow and Rocks

20080201.jpg

I started this photo blog 3 years ago, on February 1, 2005 with a photo of a Silver Cheeked Hornbill. My posting record was pretty good for the first two years, then last year I became busy, and pretty uninspired as far as photography went and I didn't post as frequently.

I am hoping to get back in to the rhythm of things and keep up with the daily photography here.

This is a photo of a few small beach rocks with a light dusting of snow.
