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.

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).
