Lock 19

This past Monday evening I headed down to Scotts Mills Lock 19 on the Trent-Severn Waterway in Peterborough. I’ve past it a million times but never actually stopped there so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was getting dark so I knew I’d be doing some longer exposures and also got to play around…

Flooded Marina

A couple weeks back I did some photography at the Peterborough Marina. I wasn’t really happy with how the photos turned out and felt kind of rushed… plus it was freezing out. This past Thursday I returned to the same spot, which has since been quite flooded by the rising water levels to do some…

Peterborough Lift Locks

Last night our camera club headed over to the Peterborough Lift Locks. The challenge for the evening was to focus on the architecture. These dual lifts are the highest hydraulic boat lifts in the world, about 65ft, which was an accomplishment considering it was built in 1904 when conventional locks had an average rise of…

Peterborough Lift Lock

Camera club ended earlier than expected on Thursday night, so before heading home, I drove up the road to the Peterborough Lift Locks hope to catch some reflections on the canal.

Omemee

Below are some shots taken in and around the Trans Canada Trail in Omemee, Ontario the other day.

Killbear Part 1

We were up at 4:30am for sunrises and were out past 10pm for the sunsets and twilight shots. We spent the afternoon scouting…

Bridgenorth Trail

The other day our camera club headed out to the Bridgenorth Trail at the edge of town. 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…
