Lock 25

I haven’t been to a camera club meeting since last November. Honestly, I thought I was done with the club but started thinking back to all the outings and how they actually got me out shooting – something I’ve been struggling with lately. Last night we went to Lock 25 on the Otonabee River between…

Rising Waters

Yesterday I went for a walk along the Otonabee River in Peterborough during my lunch break. From my office window overlooking the river I could see that the water levels were quite high due to the cold weather and constant rain we’ve been getting lately. Below are a couple phone shots edited in the Snapseed…

Edge of Ice

When I was at Warsaw Caves last weekend, I spent a bit of time focusing on a certain ice formation. I tried to capture it from a couple different angles and at one point was lying on my belly, foot in the water, camera resting on the ice trying to get a very low perspective…

From The Archives #005

Still having lots of fun going back through old photos to see shots with a fresh pair of eyes. The shot below was taken last September from a boat on Parry Sound while I was on an aquaculture tour with work. Not sure why I passed over this shot initially, but I pulled it out…
