Cloud Mountains

Strait of Georgia, BC, Canada – While taking the ferry to Victoria I saw this and thought “isn’t it funny how clouds can mimic mountains”. In this shot we have a variety of cloud types layered one on top of the other. The mountains beneath pale in contrast to the clouds above them. Captured on a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.

Ivan

Oakville, ON, Canada – About a week after Hurricane Ivan struck we were blessed with an absolutely unique sky. The clouds were arranged in long sweeping rows. As the sunset, this created a very colourful and vibrant sky. I scrambled to get to a clearing and fire off a few shots. Captured with a Kodak 6490 with a 28mm lens.

Mayflower Lake

Arrowhead Provincial Park, ON, Canada – Upon arriving at Arrowhead we decied to walk over to Mayflower Lake. What we found was a perfectly still lake creating a near perfect beautiful reflection of the small island in it’s middle. When I zoomed in with the camera the result was almost abstract. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.

2 Oars 1 Canoe

Massasauga Provincial Park, ON, Canada – After a day of portaging we settled in on a rocky outcrop. The paddles almost feel as if they glow as their shiny coats reflect the light of the nearby campfire. The image illustrates well the sense of isolation and solitude achieved through such remote excursions. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 17-40mm lens.

Silhouette

Arrowhead Provincial Park, ON, Canada – It’s funny how our eyes find common shapes and patterns so quickly. While taking this picture I came across an angle that quickly transformed this long exposure waterfall into something more. The silhouette of what appears to be a person’s face emerges from beneath the rushing water. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.

Subject Will

Oakville, ON, Canada – When looking for a subject willing to be photographed, I find seagulls to be pretty loyal to the task. All it takes is some french fries. They will come to wherever you are and find a spot to observe you from. As long as you stay there with fries they will stay there and wait. Then it’s simply a matter of point and shoot. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.

Sun Down

Sauble Beach, ON, Canada – Nothing says the day is almost over like the sun setting. I’m often attracted to celestial events due to their natural beauty. Although certain characteristics can be anticipated the final composition can never be predicted or duplicated. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.

Ambers & Flame

Lake Simcoe, ON, Canada – Sometimes creativity sparks when there is little to work with. Aside from the camera, there were only the glowing ambers of cigarettes and a small candle on the table. I decided to capture a long exposure of this conversation in the dark using only these items. Captured with a Canon 20D using an 18-55mm lens.

Lunar Halo

Oakville, ON, Canada – Luna A.K.A. the Moon and it’s omniscient light turned this cluster of passing clouds into a kaleidoscope of colour. The combination of humidity in the air, the full moon and these clouds resulted in a near-perfect halo. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.
