Cloud on the Inlet

I wanted to get in a good exercise walk today and when I looked out my window, I saw that there was a cloud sitting on the inlet.  It was pretty cold, front steps were icy and slippery, but it was going to be a sunny day as there was sun everywhere else so I figured it would either be a walk in total fog with no views or the sun might burn it off.

Got in the car and motored down the hill to corner of Moody and St John’s.  Parked there and walked the rest of the way to Rocky Pt park and continued around the inlet as planned.

I was not disappointed!  Although on the way to my turn around at Orchard Beach, all the boardwalks were frosted and slippery, on the way back, most of them had defrosted as the sun did come out.  And there was opportunity for some spectacular images, IMHO.

So here you go.  Enjoy

My Everchanging View

The view from my windows is ever changing with the season and is often very beautiful.  Here’s what it looked like a little while before all the leaves fell off and after an early dash of snow.

Isn’t my little part of the world a beautiful place.  8 =)

Finding my niche: The BIG Picture

I’ve always wondered just where I “fit” photographically.  There are so many superb picture takers and image makers out there.  And I have been inspired by all of them.

Recently, I realized what I really like to shoot.  First and foremost, I’m a landscape photographer.  I love shooting macros too, but taking pictures of people, NOT!  I can do it, just doesn’t churn my butter, as they say.

After many years of shooting landscapes, I realized what I really liked doing, and was pretty good at, was putting together panoramas.  I seem to have an eye for just what needs to be in there to make it both a big picture and still retain all the elements that make a photo interesting.

So, expect to see lots of panoramas of places I have been.  And I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Here’s a couple from our trip to Quadra Island this past July.
