I am back from visiting Muskoka and as expected there is a great amount of snow. I had planned to get out and photograph the area but due to some side distractions it never happened. The much reported freezing rain was a more accurate forecast than I anticipated.
I have started to experiment with HDR photography. I took a very similar shot back on Jan 01 with same subject, lighting etc (see below) and as you can see the high dynamic range shot brings much more life. Looking forward to experimenting more with HDR.
If you have not made it up to check your cottage lately you may want to consider it or at least have someone drop by. While we have had an awful lot of snow in the city this season, cottage country has had their proportional share as well. After Christmas the huge amounts of snow melted causing the lake levels to rise considerably. Mid January’s freeze settled them back down and its been snowing every day it seems.
For some reason I like to leave the flag up all year long. Most cottagers take them down and to me it seems like they have surrendered. Well maybe only until the warmer weather arrives. Whether I arrive dockside in the scortching summer heat or struggle hip deep through the snow, I love to see and hear the flag. Theres just something about it.
Ok here we go.¬
