Ice storm, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada during the recent springtime ice storm.  As tough as the weather conditions can be, I love the images available in adverse conditions.  Here are a few from my recent road trip.  Above is a fat bike rider braving the elements.

Close up Photography

Spring is often the dirty season where sweeping landscapes don’t look that great.   It’s the perfect time to focus on close ups and detail shots, such as melting ice, snow, puddle reflections etc.  Here are a couple of recent shots as I wait for the milder weather.  Fergus in Black and White doing what he does best, and a shot of a wooden pencil using 14 stacked images and the Canon 100 mm macro lens for maximum depth of field.

Anatomy of a pink flower, macro

Who doesn’t appreciate a flower image.  Here is one from spring 2013 shot at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, using a Canon 100mm Macro hand held and cropped slightly for a symmetrical composition.  I’m too lazy to research the flower type at the moment, so I apologize for not including the species.
