TAKE A TRIP ON THE WOLFE ISLAND FERRY TO SEE SNOWY OWLS, WINDMILLS, COWS AND HORSES. HOW ABOUT A CRUISE IN THE THOUSAND ISLANDS.  A BOAT RIDE ON THE NAPANEE RIVER TO SEE THE SWANS AND HERONS WOULD ALSO BE LOVELY.

Flora

I love to use natural light to photograph flowers. If I cannot be outside, which is quite often the case in the middle of our Canadian winter, I will place the flowers in a vase in front of a window. Frosted glass windows work well for this.

 Alternately, I use a light table where I place the flowers on the top and use a step ladder to point my camera down onto the flowers. They are illuminated this way. "The Light Within" is the photograph of the pink tulips (below) in a vase placed on the light table.


Fauna

A river runs by our backyard and there are so many wonderful birds that visit us at different times of the year. Recently, we have had swans in the Spring and they are majestic birds. I have learned to watch their pattern of behaviour.

. Below you will see "Take Off" as two swans take flight on the river with Spring trees in the background. Just as I finished clicking, a heron flew overhead. It is rare to see the underbelly of a heron. This is the photograph that is featured on the HOME page.The white horse featured below is one of the famous dancing Lipizzaners from Vienna.


Land and Sea

They say good photography is all about the light, however, my intent when capturing land and seascapes is not only about light but about the feeling, the mood of the moment.

Since I love trees, these become a focal point in my landscape photography. Put a boat and a tree together, such as the photo above right of the Wolfe Island Ferry and the tree in the water, well that is exciting. I also love boating and am fascinated by islands with windswept trees.
