At the risk of letting everyone in on the fact that I really don't get out often, I'll say that I witnessed my first flash mob today. It was purely coincidental as we noticed a large group of people gathering outside the GAP at Square One in Mississauga. Since the time for the flash mob was only 5 minutes away, we decided to check it out.
I'll also note that I wasn't the only photographer there. This guy below was not only hoisted onto his buddy's shoulders but was double fisting it with two cell phones; now thats parallelism for you. You know the age of mobile photography is truly upon us when someone decides that two cell phones are what you need to capture an event.

Early tomorrow morning I'm headed off to Toronto for about a week. Though I'll be busy with a conference and a couple of university visits, I should still have a chance to do some shooting. Rather than bring a big kit, I'm opting to use mostly a NEX-7 and 18-200. Lets see how that works out.

This is an image I've been meaning to share for some time. A large bank of clouds sits just off the California coast. Just as the sun begins to slip behind the bank the heavily scattered light takes various shades of red, orange and purple. I had to use heavy filtration to get the wild dynamic range in this scene under control. I believe I used a Singh-Ray 3-stop reverse grad as well as a 4 stop soft grad and a polarizer might have been used too.

|Layers - 1Ds3, 70-200 IS II @ 155mm, f/4.5, ISO 100, fusion of 3 exposures|
I made this image one partly cloudly morning at Oxbow Bend in the Grand Tetons. We were hoping for a beautiful sunrise to light up the skies behind Mount Moran but sadly it was too cloudy. However directly behind us in the parking lot, I saw this scene and was intrigued by all the layers. I was too lazy to set up my tripod so I just quickly made a few images handheld.
We start with grasses in the bottom, then the trees with two shades of green, then clouds, a partially hidden mountain range and finally more layers of cloud. Its not an image that is striking in any one particular way (which is why it has been left ignored for the last year) but its one that once I started working on, I started to appreciate more and more.
