The famous red house of Tors Cove, Newfoundland. The heavy fog and light rain wasn’t what I hoped for at this location but it allowed me to make a different photo of this landmark summer home.

The only way to get to your campsite in Massasauga Provincial Park is by kayak or canoe. It also helps if you have a GPS when navigation the thousands of islands in the park.

One of the many interesting rock formations and trees in Joshua Tree National Park. This whole park reminds me of The Flintstones. I’ve never seen so many strange round boulders in one place. I felt like I was on a different planet here.

I’m always on the lookout for Birch trees to photograph. These were at the side of Hwy 637 inside Killarney Provincial Park.

After a hot day in the sun, this pool of water turned into a toxic green colour. Most of North Fox Island is pink granite so this algae really stood out. The late afternoon sun only enhanced the colour. Bet you can’t see the frog.

This little Maple tree growing in the rapids of the Manitouwabing River caught my eye. It’s amazing to me that this little tree has survived the rapids, melting ice and snow.

Early morning photo of the old St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, just north of Broadbent, Ontario. This church isn’t in use any more but the doors are always open. Taken Oct 3, 2009, just off Dickson Road.

Just after 6 AM at Red Rock Point in Killarney. The weather was overcast and I didn’t get the dramatic sky that I had hoped for but I still like the atmosphere and contrasting colour with the foreground and background. 15s at f16, ISO 100, EF17-40mm f4L, 17mm.

Recollet Falls on the French River. I like that the granite rock in the foreground provides some strong lead in lines to this photo. The shape of the rock is also very similar to the shape of the sky providing a nice symmetry. I didn’t notice this when I made the photo, just that the framing felt right. Taken August 12, 2008. f22 at 1/30s, 17mm.

Dawn at Niagara Falls, Ontario. Taken at Table Rock with my tripod mounted carefully on an icy ledge. After 45 minutes at -12C the ball head on my tripod froze and I couldn’t feel my fingers. 28mm, ISO 100, 1.6 seconds at f22.

To get to Gargantua Bay you take Garganuta Road for what seems like an eternity because this is a dirt road worthy of a 4x4 vehicle and not a Mustang. The bay has an impressive cobblestone beach and is a busy boat launch for sea kayaking. f22, 1/20s, 17mm, ISO 200.
Posted on August 24, 2008
Magpie Falls just south of Wawa, Ontario. At 70 feet high and 165 feet wide, this is the largest waterfall in the Lake Superior Provincial Park area.

I followed this trail to a scenic lookout over Sinclair Cove on Lake Superior. This image is straight out of the camera without any curves adjustments. The view and the colour of the water was spectacular. In the top right you can make out a boat which is easier to see when the photograph is viewed at full size. f22, 1/10s, 33mm, ISO 100.
Posted on August 24, 2008
This is the view from a scenic lookout over Agawa Bay before sunrise. I cropped out the moon but you can see its glow on the water with a huge bank of fog that stretched across the entire bay. f7.1, 0.8s, 70mm, ISO 320.

The Orphan Lake Trail in Lake Superior Provincial Park is full of surprises and worth lugging a camera and tripod on this 8 km hike. It’s rare that you see an s-curve like this when composing a picture on an outing. Taken late in the day around the 6km point on the trail. f18, 2s, 64mm, ISO 100.

After the sun went down a guy on the beach took his canoe out for a paddle. The sky was on fire and I couldn’t resist capturing a few frames without the tripod. f4, 1/200s, 200mm, ISO 640.

Bluffs sunset in February. I took some photos at this spot about an hour before but sky wasn’t as intense. I was packing up my gear when I looked back and knew I had to try a few more exposures. Sometimes the best light is after the sun as set.
Posted on February 8, 2008
Looking west at Bluffers Park on an overcast day. This is a long exposure photo as you can tell by the appearance of the water and the slight blur to the tree branches in the foreground. I like the effect and the moodiness of the image.
Posted on February 8, 2008
Facing south on Lake Ontario at one of Bluffers Park’s beaches. This was taken after the sun had gone down which made for a great long exposure but focusing was a little difficult.

Early morning at a cottage in Port Carling. A photo of Muskoka Chairs is a little too cliché but I’ve never taken one until now and well, they provide some foreground interest in the photo.

I did a shoot for Muskoka Woods last month at Glencairn Golf Course. This was taken at dawn. The clubhouse is off in the distance.

Chedoke Falls isn’t very easy to get to but the view in this gorge is spectacular. This is one of two waterfalls at this location.

I used a book called Waterfalls of Ontario by George Fischer and Mark Harris to find this spot. It’s a great resource and one that I’ll be using again to find more locations to shoot.
Posted on March 21, 2007
This is a smaller waterfall at Chedoke Falls. The rusty red colour of the shale is unusual and contrasts nicely with the green colour of some of the rocks.
Posted on March 21, 2007
On St. Patrick’s Day there was fresh snow on the ground and the temperature was rising. This meant melting snow — a great time to visit the Hamilton area for a look at some waterfalls.

Goldenrod at the Scarborough Bluffs near my house. I wasn’t willing to wait all day for the wind to die down so some of the goldenrod is blurred but I like the rich colour that the overcast weather provides.

The sun was setting as I was driving into Rutland, Vermont. I noticed this church out of the corner of my eye, grabbed my 300 mm telephoto and took several photos. The sky wasn’t very interesting so I cropped the image.
Posted on November 2, 2006
A yellow maple tree near Waterbury, Vermont. I spent about an hour removing wires from this photo but felt it was worth it. I really like the autumn colour in this photo and the way the golden maple tree ‘pops’ in the foreground.
Posted on November 1, 2006
Some pines and a cabin on a lake in Vermont. The sun was setting and shining on the yellow Maples in the distance. This photo is a combination of two exposures to bring out some detail in the sky. I did a square crop so that my horizon wasn’t in the middle of the photo.
Posted on November 1, 2006
Sterling Pond is at the top of Smuggler’s Notch, Vermont. It’s a 1.2 mile climb to get here but the scenery and the view’s are great. ISO 100, 0.6 seconds at f22, 21mm, tripod.
Posted on October 26, 2006
Some waterfalls just north of Middlebury, VT. I like how the diagonal cuts through the frame and provides a strong contrast between the flowing water. The light was also filtering through some trees behind me, casting some nice shadows on the water.
Posted on October 25, 2006
A cemetery I came across on Route 7A in Vermont. This was taken before sunrise when the grass and headstones were covered in frost. I converted the image to black and white and made a few exposure adjustments in Photoshop.

The Otter River in southwestern Vermont. When I was driving along Route 7, I noticed the mist rising off the river and pulled over to take a series of photos.

A hayfield in central Vermont. This photo is a ‘blended image’ — first photo is exposed for the sky, the other exposed for the foreground and then blended together in Photoshop for what you see here. Some minor curves and level adjustments were made as well.
Posted on October 20, 2006
Moss Glen Falls, just north of Granville, Vermont on Route 100. The best looking waterfall in the state (and the most accessible). I shot this just after 6 PM, in the rain, with very little light. Perfect weather for shooting waterfalls! ISO 400, 10 seconds at f11, 17mm, tripod.

A farmer’s field in Daytonia Beach, Ontario. Taken with the a Canon 50mm lens which is great in low light. 1/320 second at f7.1, ISO 400, handheld. I cropped it to remove a fence that was in the foreground and like the panoramic look.

The observation tower at Bloody Lane, Antietam National Battlefield, Maryland. It was a peaceful Sunday morning when I took this photo. Just behind me was a field where one of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War took place—23,000 men died in one day of fighting.
Posted on May 15, 2006
Just north of Harrisburg, PA I pulled the car into Rest Area to take this photo. The light was incredible and I can’t get over how painterly the image looks. Since I started shooting digital last year, this is without question, my favourite photo.

Sunrise on Lake Ontario. Taken at the bottom of the Doris McCarthy Trail. This photo is a composite of three others. I used a 0.6 neutral density filter and a polarizer to get a longer exposure.
