Yesterday was, of course, the day I went off to capture such a thing and then found all sorts of other marvelous images. I did get a landscape too though, cropped it and got it ready, but thought I would post it next day as three posts in one day seemed excessive. Well, I am ever so pleased that I waited, as the ice from Thursday night’s storm is still encasing things and on my way to work what do I see, but the most beautiful glass, almost gold, sailboats. Quality-wise, the picture may not be the best as the boats are stored across the harbour and I had to crop quite a bit off to get them to really stand out. I am happy all the same.
And here is my original landscape taken at the bottom of my street. I am actually very proud of this one as I do not usually take good landscape shots. I find they’re usually anaemic and, well, dinky, when they should be impressive and grand. This one though I think gives an idea of expanse. Making it extra long helps. And I like the way the truck anchors it in the one side.
As I mentioned previously, we are post ice-storm and I have been on the hunt for images. And while looking at big things accidentally came across the most magical small things. Some iced over weeds in a vacant lot taken from foot-level look majestic in front of some distant homes.
I am very pleased in that marvelous surprised way when things really and truly work.
Here it is Good Friday, so I have a day off and some time to catch up on my Photo101. And it’s just after an ice storm so I have been having a lot of fun wandering about taking shots of ice, most not very successfully, but you just need a few, right. Ice is a very tricky thing once it’s a little distance away.
So here is my colour pop photo. I was actually wondering to the bottom of my street to take some landscape shots of the Georgian Bay when I saw this yellow wire cover. Actually, I saw a red hydrant first, but it wasn’t doing it for me and then there was this glimpse of yellow amongst the bushes across the street.
