Sunset Through the WindowPosted: January 4, 2014 Filed under: Sky, Toronto | Tags: lamp, reflections, sky, sunset, Toronto Leave a comment
An intense sunset over Toronto a few days ago, looking south and west. I enjoy taking photographs through windows with reflections from the inside superimposed on the outside. The lamplight certainly is a dim distant cousin to the sun!
Beaver Pond–Haliburton, OntarioPosted: October 10, 2013 Filed under: Ontario, Water | Tags: autumn, beauty, beaver pond, black and white photography, Haliburton, nature, Ontario, reflections Leave a comment
This past weekend we travelled to Haliburton county, to the northeast of Toronto. We were eager to see the turning leaves which were intense even in the rain which accompanied us during most of the weekend.
This photo is of a beaver pond we saw on private land. I am drawn to reflections in nature and loved the clear ones in this pond. Because the scene was one of muted colours, I photographed it in black and white, which allowed me to focus on the design created by the mirror image.

Late last week I returned from a trip to the Canadian Rockies. I have only seen mountains with glaciers one other time in my life. That was for one day in the early 1970s when I was in Yosemite Park. So, to see the mountains in Banff, Yoho and Jasper National Parks in Alberta and British Columbia was a profound experience. I’ll be writing about that time over the next while. But for now, here’s a photo of famous Lake Louise with its jeweled reflections that I took one late afternoon. There’s a reason Lake Louise is famous!
