Back in June when I was at Pukaskaskwa National Park, I spent an evening photographing sunsets and clouds. My equipment was set up on a viewing platform on the Manitou Miikana Trail, “The Spirit Trail”. As I was photographing one scene, I looked behind me and saw this unique cloud formation that had turned an unique orange color. I reversed the camera on my tripod, found some foreground and composed the above shot. Because I had to deal with wind I kept the foreground dark to avoid any blurriness and for your eye to view the sky.
Well that is it for this week. The Killarney Art Show was a fun filled weekend. Made a little money and met some wonderful people. So until next time, happy trails.
Being this far North in the third week of June, meant that the outdoor conditions are different from our home in Sudbury. The leaf cover had just came out the week before. This gives you that nice fresh yellow green color in the landscape. The wild shrubs were just now in full bloom along with a number of wildflowers. The winter climate up here is so harsh that plants commonly found in the Arctic grow along the shores of Lake Superior. The folks at the Pukaskwa National Park said that the lake water temperature was 3 degrees. Brrr that is cold.
The above photo was taken on one of the three evenings that I set up on the lookout platform on the Manita Miikana Trail overlooking Lake Superior. As I was watching the sun go down towards the West of me I happen to look behind and saw this beautiful cloud pattern with a lot of color. I elected to create a vertical composition to contain the clouds. In the background you can see Horseshoe Bay and part of the sand beach.
Well that is it for this week. I will be set up at the French River Visitors Center for the weekend. I will have a great majority of my work on display. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great July First long weekend and be safe
A beautiful Fall evening. The sun is below the horizon. I had looked to the North side of O S A Lake and saw the beautiful colored sky that you see above. I set up my tripod and Canon 7D and composed the above shot. Scenes like this are always wonderful to see. The colors in the sky are fleeting, so you have to be fairly quick about getting these shots.
Well that is it for now. It is a rainy day here in my part of the country. Plus freezing rain and snow.
I just finished a new book on Blurb. I created this book using my photos and poetry. To view it go here.
Until next time happy trails
This was an exposure that I had taken last Fall on O S A Lake in Killarney Provincial Park.O S A Lake has a rocky shoreline that I love to create a composition with.I was on an island facing West.The sun had set behind another island with a reddish glow filtering through the trees for a nice effect.So quickly looking around I saw some boulders going to the right of me.There was an opening in the boulders were the rocks were smaller and reddish colored.Setting my tripod to half its height I composed this shot.I used Photoshop to darken the outer edges of the photo so that the eye follows a path from the rocks in front to the island.
That is it for this week so until next time happy trails.
