Autumn Equinox

For the first day of fall, here are images from past years covering some of Ontario’s nature trails, some of which are a part of the Bruce Trail that spans 890km.

World Travel

In retrospect, I look back as to why I picked up a camera in the first place – it was to capture the best moments in my life. These include travel, events and people. The truth is… I’ve always been jealous of those who could capture a moment in a single photo and make it look amazing. As in the case while flipping through many National Geographic magazines. While there were many amazing images, one struck me as memorable – the vibrant green moss growing on vastly tall trees of a forest. I have also been in awe of those I knew personally who took photos of landscapes and family. They looked so professional.

This is when I decided to buy a DSLR and learn. Here are some of my travel photos put together in a short video clip.

Locations in this video:

Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse and Welcome Centre, Nova Scotia
Spencer Gorge Conservation Area, Hamilton, Ontario
Tierra del Fuego National Park, Argentina
Point Pelee National Park, Leamington, Ontario
Cavendish, Prince Edward Island
Beagle Channel, Patagonia, South America
Sturgeon Bay Provincial Park, Ontario
Buenos Aires, Argentina
The Crack, Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario
Anne of Green Gables, Cavendish, Prince Edward Island

I look forward to creating more memories and capturing them on camera.

A Waterfall of Turqouise and Sun

Well, okay….I took that title from a game one of my publishing classmates put on Facebook where you fill in the blanks to create a title – place, birthstone and weather.

This said, I made a few visits to Niagara Falls to capture the Wonder of the World in winter. I have been eyeing photographs posted on a photography group’s Facebook page and wanted to capture the same. I came in after the deep freeze and did not have the same effect – frozen waterfalls and icy river. I still managed to capture some beautiful scenery. And so, here it is:

Autumn

I love fall because of the moderate temperatures and the changing of colours. Here are some of what I captured – old and new. The first few locations are taken in Hamilton and it is known as the Waterfall Capital of the World. While I’ve only been to a handful, I hope to see more in the next few weeks while the weather is great. Many of these trails are located along the Bruce Trail which run about 900km from the Niagara Escarpment to Tobermory.
