Busy

I’ve been a bit busy lately and there has been little time or opportunity to make new photographs.  Here are a couple that I made about a month ago.

Nipissing Sun

Nipissing Mood 3

A little more time next week and the prediction of cooler with snow.  Photo opportunities will abound!

This unique sculpture on the Waterfront is the gnomon* of the sundial.

Different Mood

Continuing my little exploration of the monochrome vs colour choice in photographs, here is the same shot in the two modes:

Hopeful?

Nipissing Mood Mono

Threatening?

Monochrome (II)

Recently I have noticed a resurgence of interest in monochrome prints.

I published this photograph a few days ago as a colour shot.  Here is a Black and White version:

Moffat's Pond BW

Each version gives a different feel for what was observed.  Personal preference again.

Monochrome

Lately I’ve become interested in black and white photographs (again).  Sometimes a photograph which is quite ordinary in colour becomes much more interesting when converted to monochrome.  These two were made as colour photos on Sunset point the other day.

The rocky shoreline seems a bit less literal in black and white:

Curve to the Lake

Personal preference, I guess.

Patterns

Shooting the other day at Sunset Point where Lake Nipissing has created a beautiful sand beach.  No one was wading but the wind had created the patterns in the sand.  The low sun also helped.

Waiting for Winter

Last year at this time there was about a foot of snow on the ground.  This year, in typical Northern fashion, November has delivered almost three weeks of “Indian Summer”.  Yesterday was quite pleasant:

Sunset Point

A bit of ice has formed in the shallow ponding in the foreground.

Precambrian Shield

No ice in the main lake.  No snow in the forecast.

I made these photographs while the gentlemen at the dealership were changing my summer tires for snow tires on the car.
