Autumn in Halifax County

Nova Scotia is world famous for her vibrant fall colours. It’s a frantic time for photographers as we try to capture as many images as we can before the leaves are blown away. Here are a few photos I took close to home over the past few days.

Northwest Cove

There’s a small but lovely fishing village on St. Margaret’s Bay called Northwest Cove. It’s one of my favourite places to photograph. I stopped there last week on a drive around the Aspotogan Peninsula. Here are a few of my images from that day.

Tall Ships in Black and White

People either love black and white photography or they absolutely hate it! I used to be a hater until I became more interested in the art of photography. Now I love it! A great B&W image can speak to you in ways that a colour one can’t. Here are a few of my tall ships pics converted to B&W. I hope you like them.

2017 Tall Ships Regatta

I was fortunate to be invited to photograph the 2017 Tall Ships Parade of Sail from a private vessel in Halifax Harbour. It was great to see them up close and personal! Here are some images of the amazing ships that took part in this summer’s festivities.

Night Sky Photography

Taking photographs of the night sky is an amazing experience! I’ve only done it a few times but I’m gradually learning the secrets of taking interesting pics of the Milky Way. Finding an interesting foreground is the key to composing a successful image. Here are a few of my favourites.

Here Be Dragons!

Although I primarily focus on landscapes, I occasionally dabble in close up (macro) photography. Here’s one of my favourite subjects – the dragonfly. I especially like them because they eat things like mosquitoes!

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?…
