On the Third Try at A.Y. Jackson

I have changed my blog layout to better show my photos.This meant changing the theme from the previous theme that I was using.The unfortunate part was that each post allows only one photo.So continuing from the previous post I will discuss the above panoramic that I had taken on the previous trip.

Killarney Provincial Park was created due to the efforts of The Group of Seven.A Y Jackson Lake was named after one of the Group of Seven’s artist A.Y. Jackson.When I had first arrived at this location I saw great photographic potential here.I also realized that the best shooting would be early morning due to the sun’s path in relationship to the lake.The La Cloche’s white quartzite cliffs in the background would give a dramatic affect to the panoramic.

I made a couple early morning excursions to A.Y.Jackson Lake but found the conditions not to my liking.The lighting was off and there was wind.I finally succeeded on the third try one morning were by the sky was cloudy and the wind calm.I knew I was in luck when I when I drove into the parking space at George Lake.The reflections were beautiful.A short hike brought me to A.Y.Jackson Lake and I was treated to an amazing scene before me. I set my tripod up on top of a rock and proceeded to take four overlapping photos.What really helped make this panoramic was the fog in the La Cloche Mountains.

I set the zoom at 65 mm and the shutter speed was set to 30 sec @ f22.That finishes this post for this week.So until next time happy trails.

  1. This is absolutely gold. I did not expect that I’d get so much out of reading your write up! You’ve just earned yourself a returning visitor 🙂

  2. This page appears to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you advertise it? It offers a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to talk about is the most important thing.
