Darnley Cascade Waterfall

I haven’t updated the blog in a while, been crazy busy and had a bit of a sickness for a little while too. We finally moved into our new home and my lazy ass finally got the computer setup so I could finally get back to bloggin and doing some photography work! I have had this picutre edited and ready to go for a little while but just got to lazy and never posted it! The reason I’m getting around to it today is because I just ordered it in a canvas print from a new company called Downtown Digital Print in Burlington. I absolutely love canvas so I cannot wait for this to arrive! I’ll update the post with a review when it comes in!

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!
