Side trip

We spun down into Flatrock today to watch waves. I’ll have more photos later, but this was my favourite of the day.

Sea Fever

Masefield had it right. We took a walk on Middle Cove Beach yesterday evening and found a bit of sea and spring fever..  

Winter perks.

Somewhere on every photographer’s blog you will likely find an entry about winter sunrises. The cliché is not without merit, since sunrises are far, far easier to be awake for at this time of year. Harder on the fingers, when the windchill dips to the -20C range, but you’re more likely to be up anyway….

A glimpse

This has been a rather busy fall. So busy, in fact, that autumn has almost passed by without my noticing it. Since it’s my favourite season, this was a bit of an eye-opener for me. We took some time and went for a family ramble through the MUN Botanical Gardens on Sunday.

Sifting

I’m still sifting my way through a summer’s worth of photos and reckon I’ve gotten through maybe half of them. I’m not usually one for hanging on and posting shots long after they were taken by me, but in this instance, it’s working well. I haven’t as much time to photograph things this month as…

‘Tis Monday…

…and a fine specimen it is to be sure. Child is home sick (cold and fever) and I seem to be acquiring the cold symptoms as well, symptoms that I am studiously denying and will try to blast out of my head with a nice, long run later on. It’s amazing how much more appealing…

Poised and ready

  I posted a version of this photo earlier in the summer, while on Exploits Islands, but I wanted to pop this one up now for several reasons. Firstly, having limited bandwidth on the island, the resolution of the photo originally posted was not great. Looking at it on a tiny phone or camera screen…

Like blue velvet and diamonds

I’ve been plotting out a series of pieces and am started in on the skies and basic layouts for them. Sifting through photographs to jog my imagination has been a great help, since the skies on Exploits are a little different from the ones I find on the Avalon Peninsula. The clear nights are deeper…

Blue skies ahead

After yesterday’s little hurricane, it’s nice to look at blue skies and normal wind levels. We weren’t hit too badly, although our shed is ninety degrees north of where it ought to be. I took these photos in July, on Exploits Islands. The shot above is of one of the more dramatic and colourful houses…

The merits of prostration

I have not yet been run over by a car. In fact, I can happily say that it hasn’t even been a near thing. When you really get involved with photography, you start looking for unusual angles and interesting perspectives. Quite a bit of the time, this involves bizarre contortions, adept balancing and (if you’re…

Hiscock House, Trinity

While processing some hand-held, low-light shots that I’d taken of Hiscock House in Trinity, I decided to play around a little with colour.I’m still of two minds about digital manipulation of images; sometimes I like it and sometimes I feel it’s overdone. It’s so particularly a matter of personal taste that there really can be…
