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.

preservation boardwalk 1 & 2

my daughter called me one day and sent me some snaps of a park she found in guelph, ontario and suggested that the next time i was there i should check it out… i took her up on it and we both went for about an hour-long hike in preservation park. the weather was mostly overcast with moments of sunshine breaking through the clouds. thankfully, the lighting was quite lovely on these stretches of boardwalk. i shall have to return in the autumn, perhaps…

flying in the mist

my disdain for winter aside, here is a lovely morning shot of the niagara river as it makes its way towards horseshoe falls at niagara falls, ontario. visible, are a number of prominent structures on the canadian side including the niagara skywheel (ferris wheel), some hotels, table rock and the skylon tower. talk about beautiful light and colour in the sky… also notice all the birds flying in the mist created by the powerful falls.

frozen by the falls

for the record, i don’t like winter. why humans are subjected to this inhumane season is beyond me… but it does make for some wonderful photographs. this was photographed early one winter morning earlier this year at niagara falls, ontario.

Weather Beaten Charm

Weather Beaten Charm (B&W)

there are some country roads just south of short hills provincial park in and around fonthill, ontario where the landscape oozes charm. in my travels, i have come across this weather beaten cabin – i fell in love with its setting and waited for the fall colours to arrive before photographing it. here it is at the early onset of those autumn colours.
