Pebble Homes

Pebble Homes - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, f/14, 1/4s, ISO 50.
I really struggled in composing this image because while the patterns of these pebble filled holes is interesting, its hard to find a framing where you don’t end up cutting one with the edges of the frame.  Ultimately I decided to embrace it and purposefully make sure that some number of holes were cut on each side of the frame to have some kind of balance and then to have a cluster of complete holes in the center being the main subject.

Kelp and Penguins

Kelp and Penguins - Leica S007, 32mm, f/8, 1/90s, ISO 100.
It was starting to drizzle a little that morning at the end of our landing at St. Andrew’s Bay, but rather than just take the zodiac directly back to the ship we went looking to see if we could find a Leopard Seal.  We were ultimately successful, but before then I saw this image screaming to be made with the layers of white sky, King Penguins, rock and kelp.

Indian Head Cove

Indian Head Cove - Phase One XF, IQ3 100, 40mm, f/14, 6s, ISO 50.

More of that beautiful colored water of Georgian Bay.  Indian Head Cove is a popular spot and so making photographs there without people in them is a real challenge.

Little Cove, Georgian Bay

Little Cove, Georgian Bay - Alpa STC, IQ3 100, 32 HR, 12mm rise, 1.5° tilt, f/11, 60s, ISO 50.

I lived in Ontario for 8 years and it wasn’t until a business trip out there this week that I visited the Bruce Peninsula and made some images.  It rained a little bit on and off during my 3 1/2 hour drive there from Toronto, but when I arrived, the clouds were starting to clear a little making for nice conditions for photography.  My first stop was Little Cove which is in and of itself a provincial park and I was immediately struck by azure color of the water.  On the flip side, I was also immediately eaten alive by dozens of mosquitos, a problem I usually don’t have on the California Coast.
