What Have I Been Up To Lately?

Geez, I’ve been really slack about posting anything on my blog lately! I have no excuse – I’ve been out and about quite a lot with my camera.

Here are a number of pics from April and May at assorted locations not far from where I live. Enjoy!

P.S. – I’m going to try to be better about posting more often. I wonder how well I will stick to that promise?…

Sunrise at Crystal Crescent Beach

Last week my photo buddies and I decided to attempt another sunrise photo shoot at Crystal Crescent Beach. We weren’t disappointed this time – mother nature put on quite a show! Here is a selection of pics from our outing. Notice the progression of different colours in the sky as the sun rose from below the horizon.

Waves

I got up at “stupid o’clock” a couple of weeks ago and drove for an hour with a couple of friends to photograph sunrise at Crystal Crescent Beach. Unfortunately, sunrise was a major disappointment. The dull grey light made slow shutter photography of the waves an unexpected treat, however. Here are a few of my favourites from our outing…

Halifax Waterfront

I usually prefer shooting landscape images but I recently joined a couple of photo buddies to do some early morning photography along the Halifax waterfront. One morning was quite overcast and the other had a beautiful golden sunrise. Here’s a selection of photos from both trips.

Peggy’s Cove… Again

I never get tired of taking photographs at Peggy’s Cove. No matter how often I go, it always looks different. I’ve been there on warm summer days and bitterly cold winter evenings. I’ve never been there for sunrise, though, until a couple of weeks ago. My friends and I stopped at Peggy’s Cove for a sunrise photo shoot, then we returned later in the afternoon to capture the setting sun. Here is a selection of photos from our trip.

Lobster Fishing

Lobster fishing season opened a couple of weeks ago along Nova Scotia’s south shore. Opening day, also known as “dumping day”, is usually a very busy time as the fishermen race to get their traps in the water. I drove to Terrence Bay with my photo buddies to see if we could capture some of the action. Here are a few of my images from our trip.

Beach Sand Art

I was wandering along Cleveland Beach at low tide the other day and I noticed that Mother Nature had sculpted some fascinating shapes in the sand. They reminded me of something I’d expect to see in an art museum. I quickly grabbed my trusty Canon 70D and photographed a few before high tide could erase them forever. Aren’t they beautiful?
