Finally, today, the last installment of this series allows me to share pictures from our last winter excursion to Elk Island... We were lucky, again, to arrive there just before a gorgeous sunset, along with many other photographers.
As you have probably surmised, I am not the greatest fan of winter. I do, however, appreciate how beautiful it can be during certain conditions. We have not had a chance to visit Elk Island this winter too often but, even so, came out with bunch of nice shots from our outings.
Well, apparently, it's spring... It is difficult to believe it somehow with snow falling and wind blowing outside. It's going to be a few more weeks before we will see anything green around. But I will not despair. I will simply look at my pictures from last spring and enjoy them with a hope to witness similar views soon.
Photographing the Aurora, is relatively easy. Tripod, wide angle lens, possibly a remote shutter cord, and patience.
Whether it's a sunrise, sunset or the middle of the night, there is always something to see at Elk Island. It is a rare trip that I don't bring way too many pictures back. Here is part two of my summer shots.
Summer.. My favorite time of year. Hot days, warm evening and nights. Everything is colorful and full of life. No wander I like going out and admire the world around..
I am very happy that we have Elk Island National Park so close to home. With a short drive outside the city one can enjoy a little peace and quiet and lots of nature.
It must be awfully boring for Mother Nature in winter. Nothing to grow, nothing to make bloom or fruit.. I guess it's no wonder she spends her time creating snowflakes and playing with ice crystals.
I always liked the look from a fish-eye lens. The natural look, not corrected. The best thing about fish-eye lens is that it practically does not need auto focus. Because it is so wide, all you have to do is put it on aperture f8 set the focus to infinity, and just take pictures.
