Daily Shoot - Symbols can be simple, ornate, plain, or colorful. Make a photo of a symbol that represents or stands for something else ( http://dailyshoot.com/assignments/96 ) .
You may recognize this shape from watching coverage of the 2010 Olympics. The logo of the Vancouver Olympics is based on the Inuit Inukshuk, stone markers that have been used in the Arctic for centuries to guide hunters and travellers. The Inuit Inukshuk has become a symbol of leadership, cooperation, and the human spirit. This Inukshuk stands in Sunset Point Park in Collingwood overlooking Nottawasaga Bay. It is a tribute to local resident Peter Crompton who lost his life in a boating accident.
The sun was trying to break through the clouds this morning, giving the slate grey water, ice and sky we've grown accustomed to this winter a bluer cast. In order to increase the tonal range, I took 3 shots with -2/0/+2 exposures and combined them as an HDR image in Photomatix Pro.
