IN FOCUS

    Remember the non-energy efficient windows? They were wonderful canvases to work on! On very cold days, I can still capture frost patterns on one of the bedroom windows. Look especially at sunrise/sunset when the contrast between warm and cool colors is quite evident.

    I noticed this ruffed grouse on the roadside and stopped to observe it for a while. It eventually flew across to the other side of the road and made me think that it would be interesting to try and capture it in flight. It eventually returned to a tree on the other side of the road after which I readied myself for a shot. As I approached closer to the grouse, it once again left the tree and I quickly followed its motion releasing the shutter a few times. I was happy to find one frame in focus, particularly since I captured the image from close range without remote triggers or sophisticated technology. It's nice to have 'Lady luck' on your side occasionally.

    A field of daisies, hawkweed and an unknown yellow flower in Northern Ontario created a wonderful mosaic of colour.

    A light rain, mixed with a little wet snow, saturated the colors of the maple leaves on this 'off the beaten path' cottage road north of Sault Ste Marie.

    It seems that I am often chasing the sun. I expected a clear sky this morning according to the forecast but, as is often the case, it was mostly cloudy. However, I noticed a sliver of clear sky in the east just above horizon. I suspected that there might be an opportunity for a few minutes of intense light. I hopped in the van and drove about 15 minutes in an easterly direction before the sun lit up the clouds. It only lasted for a few minutes but it was all worth it.
