Just got back from a four day canoeing and photography trip on the bruce peninsula. A few more images coming in another post.


Rocks and water

I always liked the abstract nature of water of rocks, some of the ones on the bruce peninsula are fun to photograph. This is definitely something I will experiment with more next time I have a chance.


A postcard week

Aug 27, 2012

Being disappointed and coming back with nothing exciting from a trip is part of landscape photography. It’s something I’m starting to get used to, especially whenever I go up to the Bruce Peninsula wishing for some good light. It’s my second trip up there this year, and I’m hoping to return sometime in September to give it another try.

This week was full of sun and mostly cloudless sky. I tried to capture the post card like appearance of flowerpot island during the only time some clouds graced the sky with their presence. Bright, vivid and perhaps over the top, it is how the place appears on sunny days. Later in the evening (3rd picture) the sky in the whole area was blank and stayed like this for the rest of the week.

Bruce Peninsula

May 28, 2012

I spent a few days on the Bruce peninsula (in Ontario Canada) this past long weekend. The weather was great but unfortunately the light was bad and the trip was not very fruitful photographically. Tobermory is probably the closest and best place to stay if you are planning on heading out that way. There are plenty of motels, hotels and cottages as well as a ferry to the flowerpot island.

Note that good cooking is scarce in the area so you will have to settle on typical pub fare or nasty fish and chips in the centre of little tub harbour. A few more expensive places inside of the hotels offer what one could call “fine dining” but don’t be fooled. A new restaurant (opened for just the 3rd day when I got there) called the Rocky Raccoon Cafe just outside of town on highway 6 is the only place I have discovered that offers great food prepared by a Nepalese chef. After coming to this region on and off for the last 15+ years, I no longer dread the food I have to deal with during my stay.
