Rainy Evening on a Farm

Last night our photography club headed out to an old barn on the outskirts of town. We tried to shoot this location a couple weeks back and got rained out. Unfortunately, the weather did not improve for this visit. It was so dark out, that I chose to use long exposures to get the shots instead…

Peterborough Airport

YPQ – the international airport code for Peterborough Airport. That’s where our photography club ended up this evening. I guess one of the perks of being in a camera club is gaining access to places that would otherwise be out of the question. When I got to the airport, I found the rest of the…

Fire Station

Tonight our photography club tried something a little different. Our weekly outing brought us to the fire station in downtown Peterborough, Ontario.

We were told that there wasn’t much to photograph along the trail, so I thought it would be a challenge. It was true, there wasn’t really anything that  popped out, but if you looked a little closer, photo opportunities…

There’s just something about all the different monuments, the history, and all the religious imagery that makes cemeteries interesting places to shoot. Tonight our camera club went to Little Lake Cemetery in downtown Peterborough, Ontario. It was a bit weird at…
