It's Been a While

It was great to get out for a quick shoot tonight, The moon was out and conditions were excellent. I decided to head to a location I had tried to photograph in the past during sunset but the lighting was never right, I figured a night shot would help this location stand out and with the moonlight to help light things up it was my best chance.

I've been away from G+ for a while now jumping periodically to see whats up. I haven't been shooting a lot so it was great to dust off the cobwebs. Other interests have been keeping me busy even though photography is always on my mind.

Well I think it's time to put my attention back where it belongs ;-) 

I hope you enjoy! Share if you like it....

2003 Heritage Softail Springer

I don't normally do the over processed HDR look type images but sometimes it can be fun with some subjects.

This graffiti with my Springer in the foreground was asking to be over done ;-)

I'm in the middle of transforming the bike from it's original state to something I have thought about for a while now. the biggest change will be happening soon when some ordered parts come in

Cheer!

Andalusian Country Side

Taken from the overlook at the village of Carmona.

Carmona is built on a ridge overlooking the central plain of Andalusia; to the north is the Sierra Morena, with the peak of San Cristobal to the south. The city is known for its thriving trade in wine, olive oil, grain and cattle.

Tomorrow we are off to the port city Cadiz on the southwestern coast.

Spain Bound

So I'm off to Spain next week, I'll be staying in the Seville area. Looking to get in a lot of photography and wondering if any of my Google+ friends are in the area? This will be my third visit to Spain, the last 2 being cycling related.

Cheers!

In Search of Aurora

While on a bow hunting trip to the hunt camp I was hoping for some aurora action, unfortunately we only had the standard starry skies which is nice.

Looks like I may have to plan a trip above the arctic circle to set the odds in my favour!

Have an excellent Xmas holiday friends!

What is the "Blue Hour"

I don't normally do this but I see so many "photographers" referring to the blue hour in their photo when it clearly isn't. 

My advice would be do your research before posting your blue hour shot and mislabelling them. If the sun is above the horizon, it's not the blue hour.

So what is the "Blue Hour" ?

"The blue hour is the period of twilight each morning and evening when the sun is a significant distance below the horizon and the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue. This effect is caused by the relative diffusability of short blue wavelengths of light versus the longer red wavelengths. During the blue "hour" (typically the period is about 40 minutes in length), red light passes straight into space while blue light is scattered in the... more »

So 

I guess when you buy a new motorcycle helmet, you should also have a motorcycle to go with it, eh...

I took it out for a half hour ride this morning before deciding to become the new owner of this 100th Anniversary Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Springer.

Of course once I get it home and have more time I will take some better pictures, but for now here is a phone snap of it!

Oh! and just in time to celebrate with my wife for our 20th wedding anniversary!

Living in the Sixties

Looking back I found this photo of my 67 Chevelle Malibu.

I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this car, I rebuilt the engine and assembled in my fathers garage, installed the engine under an old beech tree. I spent a lot of time with friends and girlfriends ;-) cruising the beach strip and street racing. When I sold it many years back it brought tears to my eyes as it was trailered away only to find out the new owner wrapped it around a hydro pole

A Select Look at Ontario, Canada

Traveling is awesome! Traveling around the world is totally awesome!

Taking the time to explore the area you live in is, well... unbelievably awesome!

Why you ask?

Well you have the opportunity to return to location's often enough to really get to know the area and experience conditions in a variety of different light and season's. Everything from the grand landscapes to the small detail's that truly make up our world.

So I say put the leather to the ground and explore what's around you!

I hope you enjoy this collage of images I have taken over the last few years of my home province of Ontario

Winter projects

Sometimes winter calls for a project or two, this has been brewing for a while now and after visiting a couple friends over the holidays I was inspired to get at it.

This is a wild black cherry cutting board I whipped up this afternoon out of wood that came off my parents property, we had a tree milled up a few years back, with over 150 board feet left, i left the bark on one side to add to the aesthetics. I have a feeling I'll be making more among other things!

What makes this more special is it will be a momento of my fathers passing two years ago

A Triptych

It has been over a year since I've visited one of the most beautiful locations in Ontario, Canada. Now that cycling season is winding down...

I think it's time I return

Pictured below is summer, autumn and winter on The Bruce. This has to be one of my favorite compositions I have come up with during my many visits here.

Looking forward to a return visit this autumn!

A Night Under the Stars

My family enjoying a campfire and a quiet night at The Hunt Camp. All the bugs have gone to sleep, except the fireflies... 

Can't wait for a return trip in the autumn!

Nature's Embrace

The natural setting of a forest is my studio of choice. While on a family vacation up at The Hunt Camp in Ontario. Between fishing ATV'ing, target shooting and keeping everyone entertained I was able to sneak away for some "me" time and photography, well the bugs joined me but that's ok  ;-)

Brownie Points

Last night I took my wife Teresa on a training ride. It was a ride to match her pace and help her understand effective group riding on a bike at speed, safely. The benefits are I get to spend quality time with her, it's an active recovery ride for me and we get to stop and take a few phone camera shots I would not otherwise stop for while out training. This scene and many more caught my eye, I will be returning to this spot with camera in hand this weekend.

Surrounded by Friends

For the amazing +Sandra Parlow 

It was a pleasure to organize this past weekends 2nd Annual #TorontoPhotowalk with Sandra. Her infectious laugh and sparkling eyes had everyone smiling. We had a great day on Toronto Island and I would like to thank everyone who attended. 

I know it was difficult for Sandra to part ways with everyone after the walk, it was the one time during the day when she was at a loss for words. 

From the bottom of my heart I say thank you Sandra for an amazing day.

Life is Precious in the Forest

In southern Ontario there are pockets of Carolinian forest which are becoming more scarce these days, our family has a 36 acre Carolinian managed forest which I enjoy spending time on. This morning I was up at 4:30am and in the forest by 5am to experience another awakening of birds and wildlife. While sitting at a huge maple tree I heard a faint grunt behind me, as I peered around the tree this day old fawn was just getting up on it's unsteady legs. It dawned on me that I had seen its mother feeding earlier, the mother will "place" the fawn in a safe location and go about foraging for spring shoots while the fawn lays motionless on the forest floor, this is a natural instinct the fawn has to avoid detection from predators. 

If you ever come upon and fawn like this, enjoy the moment do not attempt to touch the fawn and move onqui... more »

If you ever come upon and fawn like this, enjoy the moment do not attempt to touch the fawn and move on quickly. Other wildlife seen this morning were, Pileated Woodpecker, Eastern Wild Turkey, Redtailed Hawk, Racoon and various other critters

This one is for +Sandra Parlow and +Karin Nelson

For The Hunters

First day out and a successful hunt.

Woke at 5am(worked late last night) and headed out to the family woodlot. As I got prepared I could hear the gobblers out already across the road off our property and some faint gobblers back in the bush. I quickly head back to my planned spot hoping I wasn't too late. After putting the hen decoy out and settling I did a few locator calls but no response, waited a little and spotted 2 off in the distance. They came in and out of view over the next 1/2 hr and finally responded to my calls slowly making their way to me. they appeared to see the hen decoy and weaved their way closer, never coming right in, They did an arc around the decoy and finally at about 30 yrds I had a clear shot.

I have to say it was exciting watching them come in strutting and responding to my calls.

These circle compilations take a lot of work and thanks to +Robert SKREINER for putting these together!

►Top Photographers Circle 3.0 / A-K◄ - ►Top Photos on Google+◄
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS by +Robert SKREINER
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░
In this Circles are included all ►Top Photographers,
who contributed and participated in the daily photo theme:
#10000photographers since the G+Page and Group 
+10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS by +Robert SKREINER
is established, respectively all, whose photos were shared as
►TOP Photos on Google+◄ until today.
This circle is renewed and expanded regularly! Those who have once or even several times not shared this circle are not included in this circle. Who wants to be included in the next circle again, please share this circle. This is only a fair rule. Who wants to be promoted must also concede this to the others.
░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░
►►► How to get also into the next circle? - It's very easy:

1) Share this circle public in your stream!
2) Use the following hashtag for your ►Top photos on Google+◄ :
    #10000photographers by +Robert SKREINER
    +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS
3) Add the page +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS
    and the curator +Robert SKREINER to your circles.
4) Join the NEW Community ►Top Photos on Google+◄
    https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/102730381095199131702     and share your best photos also to the Community.
5) Comment and give +1 and maybe share one ore more of the daily selected
    „Top Photos on Google+“ from the G+Page +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS 
    regularly, as well as you visit the profile of the authors.
    Who does not comment on others, who gives no +1 to others,
    is not a friend and partner, and can also not expect,
    that others visit his other stream and share his work. 
6) It is probably easy to understand that we omit in new circles always
     those who have not publicly shared a circle in their stream
     in which they were included.

One of the next circles will be about the busiest visitors, who give regularly +1,comment and share ►TOP Photos on Google+◄ at the Page!

►►► Please note:
We do not add you to our circles, comment and also not share a post, if you didn't add the page +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS and the curator +Robert SKREINER to your circles before!  And if you remove the PAGE +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS  or the curator +Robert SKREINER  from your circles, you are also automatically removed from all the circles of this page and profile! This is not rudeness, but please only an understandable gesture of reciprocity. We make only a few exceptions.
