Day One Of New Beginnings

It is officially here. SPRING! The little shoots awakening are big enough to catch with my macro extension tubes. It is finally happening So now my neighbours can expect me to be crawling around on all fours in the muck, documenting the growth of these little colourful things peeking out of the ground.

Moving Forward In Great Strides

While the hubby thinks a hobby only needs to be for my personal enjoyment, I feel that my images should get out there and be seen. I'm taking steps to make that happen more and more. This blog was the first step. I have also finally started framing images that I particularly like and donated... Continue Reading →

Still Waiting For Spring

I am so ready to take pictures of blossoms and tender greens pushing out of the ground. The only thing that gets close to that idea though is my tiny sunflower sprouting in my indoor container. It is waiting for warmer weather - just like me. Can you see how desperate I'm getting? I was... Continue Reading →

A Spring Day In The Sugarbush

I am thankful for spending a gorgeous day out in the sugar bush, helping to collect maple sap and watching how it is boiled down into maple syrup in the sugar shack. It takes a lot of work - 40 l of sap only make one liter of maple syrup! Sugar maple trees get tapped... Continue Reading →

SPRING!

Well, at least for today. There's more snow in the forecast. But in the meantime, what a wonderful morning spent on Lake Ontario. We were sitting outside -YES OUTSIDE - enjoying coffee and conversation at the Juniper Cafe. Sitting on a bench against the limestone walls, no wind and the beautiful sun it was really...

Details Of A Spring Afternoon

Returning to my theme of 'details transport the mood'. What a wonderful spring-like afternoon this was. And who would've thought, after the icy morning and downpouring rain in the middle of the day!Originally, I was going to experiment with my fish-eye conversion lens, but it turns out that it produces mostly really crappy pictures (I'll...
