Fish Dinner

Heron Fish Dinner

Saw this one fishing in the Grand River in Cambridge on the weekend. Was able to sit there and watch and take this shot of it enjoying a fish dinner.

After a some photo artistry I came up with this version which will be a part of the Art in the Park event in Elmira this weekend Saturday September 8th from 10am – 2pm.

Went kayaking on the Grand River in Cambridge today and was rewarded with this beautiful Heron strolling along the river bank.

This is a shot I took in Paris last year. Paris Ontario Canada that is! The sun had gone down and I set up the tripod on the bridge to catch the lights reflecting in the river.
This is a 3 exposure HDR processed with Photomatix then brought into Photoshop and filtered with Topaz adjust and the Paint filter in CS6.

Old Steel Bridge

Old Steel Bridge - Winterbourne Ontario

Old Steel Bridge

This old steel bridge crosses the Grand River just west of the Village of Winterbourne Ontario. It is a single lane bridge and one of those that make you think “can this support the weight of my car?”.
