Snowy Forest

Snowy Forest

I love walking through a forest with freshly fallen snow. The snow absorbs the sound making it so quiet and peaceful.

This was taken near Wiarton Ontario with my Samsung Galaxy s7. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.


Southampton Winter Lighthouse

Taken a few weeks ago in Southampton Ontario. The weather is starting to warm up a little now so hopefully I will be able to bring you a nice sunset shot from this location this summer!

I was out this morning taking pictures in the dull grey foggy weather. Why? I took a challenge from Shannon at SeeingSpots Photography http://seeingspotsphoto.wordpress.com/ to get out and take a winter, cold and snowy picture and submit it to be posted in a gallery of photos on her web site. Today was the deadline so out I went. It was great to get out since it has been a while since my last outing.

This is one of the shots I took today but not the one I submitted. I will link to it once Shannon has the gallery posted. Even though it was a pretty dull day – with a little creative additions I’m pleased with how it turned out.


Spring’s Coming

Spring’s Coming

There is still a fair amount of snow here but I am going to declare that spring is coming! This weekend the clocks go ahead 1 hour and the days are getting longer and the temperatures are slowly getting warmer. YEAH!


Reflective Stream

The tree reflecting in the stream caught my eye and I was able to get it lined up nicely in the water without actually having to stand in the stream. I made me wonder – when we reflect back on past experiences do we have a distorted view?


Home Is Where The Heart Is

Bird House with Heart

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Here is an other shot from my Saturday morning walk. The snow piled on top of this bird house reminded me of a ski chalet and the heart reminded me of the old saying Home is Where the Heart is.

This is a 3 exposure HDR with a paint filter in PS6


Double Take

Snow Path - B&W

Snow Path – B&W

Snowpath

Snow Path Colour

Here is another shot from my Saturday morning walk in the new snow. The trees at the end of this path in the new snow caught my eye with the snow clinging to the branches creating contrast with each other. It’s always tough shooting in the bush without it looking like a bunch of sticks! So here are two takes on the same image. One is pretty much how I framed it in the camera and the B&W is an alternate crop. So – Which do you prefer?
