The Darnley Grist Mill

So I have posted a couple pictures already showing some small sections of the Darnley Grist Mill, but I have yet to show ‘the whole picture.‘  The image below is literally the entire building (as I mentioned in the last post, I would use that term loosely).  The building was very, very small, but getting there early in the morning meant that I could capture the sunrise, and still move around to many different positions before the sun was all the way up!  This image was one of my favorites, you can’t see the sun, but you can see the way its lighting all the leaves on the tree’s.  I thought the yellow and gold color was just gorgeous, cause most mornings I get to see are so blue and dull in my opinion!  I also added a glowing filter, which gives the image a dreamy kind of effect to it, I’ll be starting a before and after series on the blog pretty soon which will show that effect.  Anyway hope you like!

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!

Early Morning Sunrise in Algonquin

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!
