Rocks and Water

One of my favorite photography subjects. Rocks and water. The exposure on this isn't supper long. Somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 a second. I like the photo as is however, I wish I would have taken another longer exposure, like a 5 minute exposure, for the sky and combined them. Might have to try it next time.

Work in progress - Weekend Hike

Thanks goes out to Joe Cole on his suggestion to visit Ricket's Glen in PA. Was able to get out for the weekend and snap a few nature shots while hiking.

Anyway, this shot made me...

This is the concept for a picture I'd like to submit to a local photography contest whose subject is "Geometries", and I'd like to hear your opinion about it. Not sure about the B&W,... not sure whether it would be...

Don't jump in. The water's not great!

The spring floods have returned to the Montreal/Ottawa area but its not just an excess of rain that is the cause of problems. Many home owners have built or bought in flood zones. A number homes are really cottages that have been upgraded but approving the building of new homes in a 100-year-flood zone clearly now looks like a bad idea. That...
