The Tiny Ram's Head Lady Slipper

The is the second of two Ram’s Head Lady Slippers I am posting. We were lucky that these were growing under a tree near the trail where we were able to access them without disturbing the environment they were growing in. How small is small? Take a look at this.

We were lucky to have found these. They are quite rare and are protected at Singing Sands Beach in the Bruce Peninsula National Park.

Poppies Looking to the Sun

This is a bit of a landmark image for me, photo #1000. I started this photo blog on February 1st, 2005 (after having previously displayed my images on another one of my sites for several years) with a photo of a Silver Cheeked Hornbill and posted daily up until a little while back.

Today’s photo, shot on my recent trip to the Bruce Peninsula with Scott is of poppies growing wild along the roadside. I am sure they had been part of a garden at one time, but the area appears to be overgrown now.

I hope to continue daily posting.  It does get tiring at times, and sometimes I need a little inspiration to put up a new photo.  I can’t say I will make another 1000 photos but I will give it a shot. The important thing is not to stop.  After a while, it almost becomes an addiction.

I haven’t done a good job up so far of advertising it, but many of my images here are available for sale but I hope to have that rectified shortly.

A slow shutter photo of Hoggs Falls.

A slow shutter photo of Hoggs Falls.  This was shot at ISO 100, 1 sec exposure and f22 with the use of a polarizer.  The polarizer was partially to reduce the glare on the water but mostly because I could use it slow the water down one and a half to two stops (the difference between 1 sec and 1/4 second exposure).
