Ice & Sky

I posted a similar shot a few weeks back, but I liked this one too and couldn’t choose between them. This one doesn’t have the extra piles of ice in the background, but allows more focus on the roots and bark texture. Similar elements, but a different focus. (And by focus I mean attention, not […]

Winter Arms

I’d gone to the park when I saw it was snowing out… I wanted to try out my new camera hood I’d gotten a few months earlier. (Typically for shooting at waterfalls, to protect from spray, but works for snow pretty good as well.) However, it had almost stopped snowing by the time I got […]

I’d intended to get some shots at Magee Marsh but they were shut down for hunting of some kind or another, so I ended up walking around the ponds at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge which is nearby. Not as much woods you can get into, but sometimes some birds… in this case I apparently found […]

This particular day that I was there, things looked somewhat bleak overall, not a lot to draw the […]
