Caledon Badlands

I spent a few days on the Bruce Peninsula last week photographing wild orchids, sunsets and other nice things.  On the way up, Scott and I stop at a couple of waterfalls along the way and this spot, the Caledon (or Cheltenham) Badlands.

Over the next little while I expect to post images from that trip.  Photos of Yellow Lady Slippers, Grass Pink Orchids, Showy Lady Slippers, sunsets, and waterfalls. Maybe a self portrait as well!

This is a photo of a hanging basket taken at the Niagara Falls Camera Club outing this past week, where several of my images of the Niagara Skywheel were taken along with yesterday’s self portrait.  This is a gimicky technique of using a long shutter speed and zooming the lens during the exposure.  I think it works well for this photo as the Tivoli lights are obviously showing the zoom but many of the other objects still seem to be stationary.
