under the tube

it’s not often that you see a tubular cloud formation. thankfully, i was at the right place at the right time a few weeks ago while scoping out a sunset from the shores of lake ontario at the town of lincoln. it is amazing that less than an hour after its appearance, it quite simply vanished…

from across the lake

broke out the big lens and gave this shot another try – previous attempts had not yielded any usable results… earlier in the day, we had spent a couple of hours at the beach in st. catharines and noted how clear it was out. with that in mind, we made our way to the shores of lake ontario in lincoln, ontario that evening. the view and sky certainly did not disappoint as the toronto skyline was still remarkably clear from across the lake.

lakeshore sunset 1

a sunset on the shores of lake ontario at the town of lincoln in the niagara region of southern ontario. close to home, i have taken a renewed interest in sunsets and sunrises and this spot is as good as any! i will continue coming back here, as it is close to home, to see what mother nature can offer as the months and seasons change.

parkway winter

a late winter snowfall prompted me to drive and seek some winter scenery. i was not disappointed while exploring the niagara-on-the-lake portion of the niagara parkway: a stand of snow-covered trees beyond a vineyard.

crashing wave 1, 2 & 3

we had one last day in israel and chose to return to the old port city of jaffa to spend it there. my wife and i just fell in love with this part of the tel aviv-yafo metropolis. taking a break from walking the streets of the old port, we returned to the car at the parking lot. there was a certain something with the light at this time of day and the mediterranean sea seemed a bit more agitated than normal. i set my gear up on the port wall and observed wave after wave crashing.

stormfront

 

having started out the day with some cloud cover, we had visited the aqueduct at caesarea. just after finishing my shoot there, we got a heck of a rainstorm that lasted about a half hour or so… our next stop was to visit some of my wife’s family in haifa, the northern port city in israel on the mediterranean.

the family visit completed, we went to visit a couple of sights. here is the port city from above as a stormfront was moving in (or out).

imminence

a few minutes after the previous shot (the advance) and the storm clouds are now seemingly clawing at the aqueduct in caesarea, israel.

shortly after this series of shots, we made our way to the car just in time. it was a heavy downpour, alright…

the advance

on this morning the light was constantly changing as clouds were periodically moving in front of the sun and then away again. we were on the site for a couple of hours and eventually, it became apparent that a storm was coming off of the mediterranean sea. here you have then, the aqueduct at the beach in caesarea photographed with a storm advancing towards shore.
