Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Celebrate Summer! June 22, 2017.
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. ~ Albert Camus
Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame! ~William Butler Yeats

How Does Your Garden Grow?
Jan. 7, 2016. Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? Frozen water spray covers plants in my mother's memorial garden in Collingwood's Millennium Park.
June 14, 2015. My peonies are late bloomers, but I fear with all the rain we've had this week they'll be washed out before they even have a chance to bloom.

2012 - Day 4. Jan. 4, 2012.
A rosehip in Dad's memorial garden. Since the light was so flat and dark I took 3 exposure bracketed shots, and combined them in Nik's HDR Pro. I kept the rosehip looking fairly natural, but let the background bushes go a little more surreal. I think it emphasizes the harshness of the winter environment.
Nature's Ice Sculptures
2012 - Day 5. Jan. 5, 2012.
Mother Nature is at work building ice sculptures along the waterfront. Every wave and every spray adds another layer to her art. This is a composite of 3 exposure bracketed shots, combined in Nik's HDR Pro. I used a very light touch to improve the exposure, add a bit of depth that was hard to achieve in the flat light, and still keep the scene looking as natural as possible.
