Yesterday was a sad day for us, as we lost our dear, sweet friend.

Shots From 2010, Set 2

f/11  .3sec  35mm
Black and white is where I started in photography and I am just getting back into it.  I like the texture of this shot, as the water is neither too hard nor too soft.  Standing on a rock in the middle of the river gives an interesting perspective of the water rushing toward the viewer.

f/11  4sec  35mm
 A spiral galaxy of foam floating in an eddie.  Learn what your camera does and previsualization becomes easy.

f/8  1/125sec  70mm
The glassyness of the blue water layered with the texture of evergreen reflections and the highlights all combine to make a beautiful abstraction.

f/8  .8sec  24mm
Simple form with leading lines.

f/11  1/160sec  70mm
I can't resist an early morning sunrise.

Favourites of 2010

Some of my favourites from this past summer.

f/22 1/30sec 70mm
I took this shot of a river bed during a dry spell this summer.  The rocks are usually under about four feet of rushing water.  I liked the texture of the algae on the rock and  the angles created drama.

f/36 0.6sec 70mm

f/11 0.8sec 17mm
Both of these shots lacked strong subject content but I loved the colours, so I used a slow shutter speed and moved the camera during the exposure.

f/11 1/10sec 70mm
This is the what the river in the dry river bed shot normally looks like. As you can see I like angles.

f/11 1/25sec 48mm
This is at the top of a large waterfall.  The background was blocked by fog making this "island" really stand out.
