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.

summer sky over the falls

taken from the same vantage point as a previous release, ‘fire in the sky’, this was captured in early july ’18 and also features the 3 waterfalls that make up the whole of niagara falls: american falls, bridal veil falls and horseshoe falls. a glorious summer evening with wonderful colours in the sky provided yet another magical moment in this part of the world…

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.

fire in the sky

a late spring shot of the three sets of falls at niagara falls, ontario and new york. the american falls and bridal veil falls are entirely on the american side in new york state and are separated by luna island. they are at the left of the frame and run towards the centre. horseshoe falls are customarily thought of as being on the canadian side; however, that is true for about 2/3, as the remaining 1/3 is in the usa. horseshoe falls and their american counterparts are separated by goat island. collectively, they are known as niagara falls and here they are in the evening as the sun is setting and reflecting its light off of clouds above.

remains of the harbour

so, after rejoining my aunt, cousin and wife for dinner, the light just would not give up! i excused myself once again to get a shot of the ancient harbour wall, sometimes referred to as the pisan harbour.

from the border

minutes to the east of rosh hanikra, still in the western galilee, is kibbutz hanita with its northern limits being the lebanese border. it was established back in 1938 as a tower and stockade settlement. these types of settlements were relatively common during this era of jewish settlements in palestine, before israel was a state. they refer to the first two structures built by pioneers to defend the land they were dwelling in.

presumably, its early industry was agriculture; the kibbutz still produces bananas, citrus fruits and field crops but it derives the bulk of its revenues from two on-site factories: hanita lenses and hanita coatings, the latter of which was recently purchased by the avery-dennison conglomerate.

as an aside, i have a connection to this place as my aunt and cousin live there. the image you are seeing is from an observation tower that gives a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. photographed here is the setting sun in the western skies with the mediterranean sea in the distance. the prominent road you see in the frame is off limits and is used exclusively by the military.

northern coastline

the available light at sundown once again provides for a longer exposure of the coastline as seen from rosh hanikra. as one heads south along the number 4 road, there are two small cities, nahariya and acre (akko), as well as a couple of villages before reaching haifa, israel’s third largest city after jerusalem and tel aviv. the extension of city lights that you see jutting to the right towards the centre of the frame are indeed those of the haifa metropolitan area.

the fishermen

the attraction at rosh hanikra visited and photographed, we took the cable car back up to where we came from. the beauty of this place never ends. the views to the west for a sunset or indeed south towards metropolitan haifa are gorgeous! with the sun below the horizon already, here is a shot of a small segment of the coastline directly to the south of rosh hanikra. the available light allows for a long exposure to highlight the seafoam cause by breaking waves from the mediterranean sea. the two fellows don’t seem to be bothered one bit…

the cliff

this is the white chalk cliff that houses the grottoes or sea caves at rosh hanikra in the western galillee where the mediterranean sea meets the israeli coast at the lebanese border. if one follows the normal flow of pedestrian traffic through the tunnels, this views is towards the end of the attraction. thankfully, there was some nice light towards the end of day as the sun was beginning to settle into the horizon.

cavern walls

still in the tunnels of the grottoes at rosh hanikra, here is a view from one of the openings in one of those tunnels that give way to cavern walls and a southern horizon’s view at sundown.
