Small and precious – a photo on scale

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.

Georgian Bay photos

Well, I was so pleased with my harbour shots yesterday I thought I would do some more water shots for today’s nature assignment.  I usually find water shots problematic, but done from a lower vantage point seems to help in terms of scale.

I have taken these pictures from the side as opposed to straight on and I really like the triangle formed by the beach edge and the horizon.  Especially on the first shot, where the clouds angle down to meet the same point.  And the second shot, where the lines point to the right seems to be calmer than the first where the lines meet on the left.  In fact, I had to choose a calmer water shot because the activity of the waves seemed to be opposed to the mood of the actual composition.
