Glass Water

Algonquin Park March 25, 2012

Another image from Algonquin Park, this image doesn’t spark any emotion with me like other images do, but the amazing “stillness” of the water I thought deemed this post-worthy. The reflection is near perfect and the only thing that disturbs it is the little cut off tree stump!

Testing some Black and White

I have this love hate relationship with black and white photography. I seem to go through these phases where I need to process everything in black and white, and then I’ll go through phases where I don’t even want to go near the stuff! I came across this root structure in Algonquin back in the spring, the color version didn’t look so great because the roots blended into the rocks to much. The black and white is OK in my opinion but still there is something missing from this picture and I don’t know what it is! I have a lot to learn before I master black and white, but for now I’m in a phase where I like to play with it!

Finally got around to editing some pictures from Algonquin park this past spring. It has started to become an annual trip for me (2nd year in a row), and what I loved about this year, is that it was polar opposite from last year. This year all the snow was pretty much melted, as you can see here the ice was breaking up, although last year everything was frozen solid and we were walking on this lake! This shot was taken very early morning as the sun was approaching, ice was melting and the rock was just glowing. I love Algonquin and I’m looking forward to a 3rd year of pictures!
