Morning Light – January Squares

…thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares

The other morning the rising sun was so bright that it actually woke me up. I was so excited to see the sun come up over the lake because I’m normally sound asleep when this happens.C89CB475-97AF-49D6-887A-03587F441189

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Moving Water

….thanks to Cee for hosting the Black and White Photo Challenge

I found it quite difficult to change moving water photos from colour to black and white. For some reason the amount of light in some of the photos that looked fantastic in colour were a complete washout in black and white. I tried to make some adjustments but it didn’t always work.

The Beauty and Power of Lake Ontario

….caught these images in a two hour window of sunshine today

Lake Ontario sits about 100 metres from my house. After a miserable day of rain yesterday and grey skies this morning the sun decided to come out. It was a glorious period of time, although short and I managed to get some photos of the lake as the waves crashed along the shoreline. I also managed to get in a two hour walk through the neighbourhood and explored some areas that I had never seen before (more about that in another post).
