The Road to Perth

The road to Perth is a wonderfully scenic drive winding through streams, ponds, fields and trees, complete with just about every known piece of vegetation and wildlife Eastern Ontario has to offer. It’s a drive I do a lot, not because of anything specific but because it’s as relaxing a drive as you can get…

Lilac & Tett House ICM

Today was the perfect day to get creative! Spending some time outside this morning creating photographs that incorporate the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and Double Exposure techniques really got my creative juices flowing!

Sunset Over Yellow Flowers

Experimenting again. This time, a gorgeous sunset illuminated some yellow flowers on the hill overlooking the mill pond. With a little bit of skill, some trial and error, and a lot of luck, I was able to create some images I’m happy with. This really helps when you are having a morning like I’m…

Exploring Bedford Mills

Oliver and I enjoyed an afternoon of exploring Bedford Mills. Lots of great trees and hills to climb; textures and layers to see; and a great afternoon to take in. We saw a snake (cool) and a beaver (doubly cool) on our little hike. The Earth was still that burnt orange…

County Road 36 Touring 02

Continuing with some more images that I made while traveling North on County Road 36 from Westport Ontario to Maberly, these particular photographs speak to me. They do something to my soul. Not sure if it’s the way the tree trunks are half covered in light and half fall into shadow, or just the sheer…
