We got to Haliburton this year to discover the old girl got a lovely new coat of paint!

She looks very proud in her shiny new coat. I hope it lasts a while before someone has to come along and deface it with scratches and paint bombs.

Kudos to the restoration crew….

William was very impressed……

This is a little science experiment we bought for William at Mastermind. Take this little bead and soak it in water for an hour or 2….and viola!

Amazing……let it dry out and ……small again.

Water absorbing polymers.

The joy of having a good polarizing filter. I held back because of the expense of it, but when they were on sale at Henry’s I jumped in. I bought one for all my lenses.

The results are very impressive, I am kicking myself for waiting so long. This shot was taken with the noon sun overhead.

Simply worth their weight is gold….really.

This is 16 images….carefully focused manually.

It fakes such a deep DoF.

Thoughts?

Every time it snows I run out to snap a few flakes. This is tricky and cold work.

DoF by Roger's Eye

These two shots differ by one thing. By adjusting the aperture, you can increase the amount of area that is in focus. What do you lose? Detail in short. These are the extremes the camera allows to demonstrate the point. The short Dof is f2.8 and the long is f22. I guess it depends on how short you want your DoF for a nice bokeh.

Bokeh……I guess I should visit this topic next time. 🙂
Still working my way around the camera dial, last stop Manual.

I was in the Toronto harbor yesterday on a friend’s boat. We cruzed by the Island airport as Porter Air was flying out. If you zoom image to full size you can seen a corkscrew effect behind the propellers. That was a new one for me. I love finding pleasent suprises when looking into the details.

Thx 🙂

These guys can be tough to shoot at the best of times. This year it has been very challenging. I filled the feeder and they were at it in minutes. They seemed to spook very easily though. Sitting very still by the window did not guarentee their arrival. It almost seemed started to be a cruel joke, as they seemed to appear just after I got tired and put the camera down.

cheeky monkeys!

More Macro goodness. This 100mm lens is a lot of fun. Very challenging when hand held. The DoF is very small and even a little waver in the subject will produce blurry results.

I am learning a lot about patience, especially on breezy days.

I think I also will need a quicker tripod.
