An early morning fall shot on Colpoy’s Bay. It is a great place to come and calm your soul.

The Waterloo Central Railway Steam Train was running between St. Jacobs and Waterloo this weekend. I happened to be driving by this trestle bridge as the train was approaching. Despite the rain I got this shot. A little work in Photoshop and a few filters yielded these results.

Stainless Steel Train Car

Stainless Steel Train Passenger Car

The stainless steel siding on this train passenger car caught my eye when we were in Orangeville Ontario. We were there on a company outing to ride the Credit Valley Explorer. Every one had a great time and the ride down through the Credit Valley was beautiful.




I don’t do much studio work so this was a bit of an experiment shooting this Callalily. We had fun experimenting with different settings. No better way to learn than to just do it! Also did a little processing with light room and Topaz.

Reflecting on Autumn

Reflecting on Autumn

The colours this Autumn were very nice this year. With the dry summer we had I wondered what the colours would be like and they turned out to be a nice balance of reds through to yellows  . This shot is on Colpoy’s Bay in Wiarton Ontario. Just as a side note Autumn is one of those words that made me hate spelling as a kid. Heck even now it sometimes has me stumped! M and N should only be beside each other in the alphabet.

The anchor is set. The sun is setting. It was a beautiful evening on Colpoy’s Bay when I shot this a few weeks ago.
