I was taking photos down at the dam near St. Jacobs the other day when these sheep came down to the river bank to graze. I put on the telephoto lens and took this shot from across the river.
A few weekends ago we were at Sauble falls and this big old Cedar provided some nice shade to cool off in.
Sitting in the shade listening to the water flowing over the rocks and capturing the scene with a camera…. what a blessing!
We were kayaking down the Conestogo River on Saturday afternoon. When we left the sun was shining and the weather forecast did not call for rain until evening. As the afternoon progressed these cotton candy clouds moved in. I have never seen anything quite like it before. After that the rain clouds moved in and we got soaked.
Despite the weather we had a good little trip and saw lots of different birds which I will post at a later date.
Went kayaking on the Grand River in Cambridge today and was rewarded with this beautiful Heron strolling along the river bank.
As we continued on along the Pacific Rim Highway on Vancouver Island on our way to Tofino we stopped to take a few shot of the river. There is nothing like the rush of water on a beautiful day with the mountains all around to give you a sense of wonder.
I took this picture while sailing up the St. Clair River this summer. Trees standing alone in a field have always caught my attention. I always wonder why.
Here is another shot of the sunset taken in Hawkesville. I like the contrast between the colours of the sunset and the monochrome tree.

I could see the potential for a nice sunset this evening so I jumped in the van and searched for a good location. I ended up here at the river in Hawkesville.
HDR 3 exposures. Edit in Photomatix, and Lightroom.
Here is another sunset shot of the Conestogo River. I added a paint filter to change it up a little.
3 exposure HDR with the paint filter in CS6
I was about to work on a picture to post tonight when the call came out that there was a Rainbow. I dashed out into the backyard and grabbed a few quick shots and then headed down to the bridge to see if the angle was good. The one half of the rainbow that I shot in the back yard was gone but the other half was reflecting beautifully in the river.
Back yard shot was adjusted in Lighroom. The river shot is a 3 exposure HDR, photomatix, photoshop, noiseware, topaz, lightroom.
The Nith River runs into the Grand River in Paris Ontario. This shot of the Nith is just a short walk from downtown Paris. It was a great spot to go for a hike.

This is a bit of an experimental abstract shot of water flowing over rocks in the river. It was taken at sunset in St. Jacobs.
It is a 3 exposure HDR processed in Photomatix, Photoshop, Topaz & Lightroom
I think we are attracted to reflections in artwork not only for the symmetry it creates but also because in a subconscious way we reflect on life. As I reflect on my life I count myself blessed that my wife has been such a loving Mother to our children and that I have a loving Mother who raised me. Happy Mother’s Day!
