    It's that time of year again when fog becomes a common occurrence in early morning. Fog is a stratus cloud that forms on or near the ground. One type of fog, 'radiation fog', is common in the mornings after heat has radiated into the atmosphere during the night. It normally dissipates after sunrise, often quickly if the wind picks up. It can be a magical time. 'Trees in fog' was captured on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

    Roy Ramsay founded 'Outdoor Photography Canada' magazine more than 5 years ago following a lifelong passion for magazines that started as a kid. In his latest blog post - 'What Do Photographers Feel When They Take A Photograph' - he talks about what he feels when he is photographing and illustrated the short piece with beautiful photographs. While he speaks from a very personal point of view, his thoughts resonate with many of us I am sure. I know I feel much the same way. Well said Roy!

    Photographs are wonderful memories to cherish as life moves along. I have always loved this image of my youngest daughter sleeping in her mother's arms, made more than 20 years ago on B&W film . I wonder though, with the advent of digital photography, how many of these wonderful memories will last? Unless you backup your photographs on separate media and check them every once in a while, there is a good chance they will be lost forever.

    How many of us have older photographs that we cherish for an expression, a 'moment in time', etc but, for some reason or another, was not as appealing in its original capture as we had hoped for ? Well .... consider transforming that original image! This 'spontaneous portrait' of my oldest daughter taken more than 20 years ago on B&W film was enhanced by transforming the scanned film using one of the many apps found in the App Store. You will discover a few gems within the ever growing collection and most of them cost $ 0.99 or a little more. Have a look, start experimenting and have lots of fun!

    A long exposure enables the crashing waves of Lake Winnipeg to soften as the last light of the setting sun casts a warm glow. A variable neutral density filter was useful in enhancing the sense of motion.
