Not Forgotten

It has become common to see small shrines and crosses by the side of the road where fatal accidents had occurred. The shrine shown in these images was taken in Maui at a parking lot that surfers used.

A Deadly Rush

Before and After

Before and After

Many of the rivers found in the north of Ontario are dammed and used to generate power. This creates an interesting situation downriver when water is released. The image above is from Aubrey Falls, a spectacular waterfall an hour and a half north of Sault Ste Marie. When I first arrived, the falls were almost dry but I noticed a paper stabled to a post which said water was released daily at 11 AM. The above images were taken a few minutes apart, and anyone caught out on these rocks would be swept over a high fall of over 20 meters just at the right edge.

Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.

Common Tody-Flycatcher, Todirostrum cinereum

Many members of the New World Flycatcher family, known as the Tyrant Flycatchers, are plain colored and famous for being difficult to identify. The Common Tody-Flycatcher, Todirostrum cinereum, is very distinct with a large black head and bright eye with bright yellow underparts. It is found from Mexico to Brazil, favoring second growth, clearings and gardens.

Night on the Midway

Paris Fair, Ontario

Photography is a good excuse to do things we don’t usually do. I haven’t been to a fair since my children were young, and I wanted to take some long exposure shots of the midway rides at night.I went to the local fair here in Paris, Ontario, and it turned out to be a lot of fun.There was not a lot of technique involved, I set the ISO at 50 to minimize the noise and this translated into shutter speeds of 6-10 seconds. Of course, at those slow speeds, a tripod is a necessity.
