Spirit Island on Maligne Lake is an iconic symbol of the Canadian Rockies. We took a photo boat tour to the island which gave us over an hour to explore and take pictures. I took this with my iPhone. Can’t wait to get my pictures on the computer and start processing. Sunday we head back home to reality😕
This is a common site on a Sunday morning in the countryside around St. Jacobs where I live. St. Jacobs is often referred to as “Mennonite Country”.
Some of my favorite subjects. Rusted metal, textured wood, and peeling paint!
It’s an old latch on a double door of an old shed.
Part of the fun of photography for me is post processing. It allows me to get creative and reproduce what I saw in my mind’s eye when I took the picture.
I don’t usually do this but I thought I would include the before shot in this post as an example.
When I took this shot I loved the colours and the symmetry created by the windows and the curtains. The problem was all the ugly hydro wires. I literally looked past the wires and took the shot knowing I should be able to do something with it in post processing.
For the curious, my tools were Lightroom, Photoshop and ON1
This photo was taken in Toronto – November 2012
