This week I decided that I want to post a few of my favourite pictures with a little blurb about them and why I like them.
We start off with the image that I have used in the header. I call this one “Swan Wings”.
This is one of those images that is one in a million. I was standing on the bridge over the Port Credit River in Port Credit watching the swans and taking some pictures. This guy was cruising along and I was taking a couple shots of him as he got closer. The all of a sudden he rears up and flaps his wings. I was fortunate that I was already focused on him and was able to get off 3 shots of him like this. It wasn’t until I was looking at the picture on the big screen that I saw the ripples on the water. I love this because it is a great capture of the moment.
The next one I took at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington.
I love this because of the simplicity of the image. The colours are almost perfect complimentary colours (red/green).
Lastly an image of one of my favourite photographic subjects…waterfalls.
This is downstream from Sherman Falls. I found this large piece of metal strapping in the middle of the stream. I liked the contrast of the man-made object surrounded by nature. To draw the eye to the metal I applied a very slight tilt-shift effect in post.
I have added a few more images in the gallery, so be sure to check them out as well. As always there are a ton of photos that I have posted over the years on my flickr page.
