Tatamagouche '08 - Sunrise and Moonglow

The sunrise was spectacular this year on Saturday morning.  It was cool and crisp but the light was warm and the waning crescent moon was still bright.

Tatamagouche '08 - Starry Night

This year marked my 5th year as part of the leadership team of the Ways of Seeing, Photography for the Artist Within Us event.  As always, it was a great event with a fantastic group of people.

After the Friday night session was finished, picking up from where we left off last year, I set out with my friends Shannon & Lawrence with our cameras to soak in the clear autumn sky.  It was a cool, crisp evening sky filled with stars.  We all made some long exposures of the night sky.

Later we turned the cameras on ourselves and had a little fun with flashlights and shadows.

Recent Work

I am off to Tatamagouche this morning for the weekend.  I'm sure I will have lots to post next week.
In the meantime here are a couple of favorites from a photo excursion last week with my friend Rob.
Both of these images were made at Cape Enrage, N.B. using the HDR technique.

These were some my more contemplative images before Rob and I jumped into a less contemplative mood

New Images Vol.2

These two images were made in early August during a visit to my friend Ross's cottage on the Kingston Peninsula, The panoramic is six images joined to form a single image.

Since I pretty much suck at horseshoes, I thought I would at least post a nice image of playing horseshoes.

OK, OK. Time for a new post.

Wow!, I have not posted anything since Good Friday.
I better rectify this situation. This image will be the first of several over the next few days to get the ball rolling and back into the blogging groove.

Recent work vol. 3

These images were made a couple of weekends ago on a photo excursion with my pal Shannon. It was a great day to get out and I am pleased with several of the images made that day. The square cropping seemed to suit many of the images from this trip, something to explore further in the future. Here are a couple to get started, more will follow.
