I combined the two trunks of a Birch tree with the yellow, red and green leaves to create this composition.

A Unique Rock

BassfinLake_1013

My daughter Maryjean and I spent  last Sunday evening canoeing Bassfin Lake, off the Matagamasi Lake Road. She fished and I photographed. The bugs were there, thus requiring a bug jacket. The wind was here and there. Never totally calming down. I was dropped off on the largest island on the lake. As I walked the shoreline, I spotted this reddish colored rock in the shallow waters. It was ringed with Pine pollen. It has a face effect to it. The blue water gave me good contrast with the reddish rock. You can just observe the lake bottom on the left side of the photo. I utilized the water vegetation to create the odd number of objects.

It was a nice evening canoeing and photographing. It was a fitting way to finish off Father’ Day with my daughter enjoying a couple hours outdoors. I am off to Lake Superior Provincial Park for a week of photographing. So until next time, happy trails

Simple Effect

I shot this composition for its peacefulness and quiet dignity. The stream took a bend here and there was some reflections. A cloudy sky with even lighting. I kept it tight so that the emphasis was on the stream.  You have the  around the bend effect. The water is blue from the sky even though it is cloudy. An overall lovely scene to look at. It was kept quite simple.

Well it has been quite a busy week for me. I have spent a great deal of time promoting my new book  A Wilderness Experience Through Photos And Poetry. I thank those folks who have purchased the book. You can view it here.

Pinkish Mist

VermillionRiver3739

Daybreak on the Vermillion River. The mist was rolling down the river at a good pace. There is a rocky point of land on the West side of the river. Loading up my camera gear I made my way over to the rocky point. The rock structure here is rather unique in that it has good detail and many rock faces. The neat thing was the sun was creating a pinkish glow in the mist. I set up my tripod and Canon EOS 7D to compose a photo. The biggest problem I had here was with the mist. I had to wait a bit before I could see the rocky point. The greenery gives a break in the scene along with the little Maple in its Fall glory.

Well that is it for this week. We are in the middle of a pretty good cold snap here in Sudbury Ontario. So, until next time happy trails.

One Enchanting Evening

VermillionRiver3944

A beautiful enchanting even. The air is warm. Not a breath of wind is stirring. The moon has risen. The river is at peace. There is Fall colors in abundance. This is the scene that I came upon one evening last Fall on the Vermillion River. It is a wonderful experience to be part of nature when Mother Earth shows this side of her to you. To sit by the shoreline and absorb all this around you.

Well the holidays are over, it will soon be time to plan this year’s trips. I myself am looking forward to Spring. Thank you for stopping by and until next time happy trails.

Earth Tone Colors

The point of land you see above, juts out into the Vermillion River with a bay in behind. What attracted me to this particular scene was the earthly colors of the grass growing along the shoreline. With tones of brown, yellow and green creating a wonderful softness. By using that shoreline for my lead in and keeping the water to a minimum, I made a tight composition. There was a lovely yellow leaf covered tree here that I just had to incorporate into this scene. It really adds to the composition. The sky has a unique band of clouds. The morning mist adds to the mood. There is Fall color on the far shoreline with just a hint of reflection

Well that is it for now. Thank-you for stopping

The Color Yellow

Well walking the shoreline of the Vermillion River near my home early one morning,I came across the above composition.The fog had lifted.The sun lit up the yellow leaves on the left.I had a Birch tree and another tree trunk to work with.The two trunks created a V shape.I shot tight to the shore line using the green grass as my foreground.There was  some pieces of wood at the base.I kept the yellow leafs that were sunlit to the left in the photo.Just showed some sky at the top which was a beautiful blue along with the white clouds,

While that is it for this week.I just returned from O S A Lake in Killarney Provincial Park.We spent 5 days there photographing.I will do a post sometime next week when I have processed some photos. So until next ime happy trails.
