Exploring the edge

June 21, 2014  •  1 Comment

Tonight I just got in my car and drove. The sun was still well above the horizon when I left, but I wasted the sunset trying to find a shot from a place where a spectacular view of the Carp Valley is blocked by shrubs and scrubby trees. Argh. The first of the three shots I posted (yes, trying to make up for lost time) was a big pond in a great little piece of the Canadian Shield on Thomas Dolan Parkway. A simple shot of the lake itself just didn't look interesting or do justice to the scene. Hence the decision to focus on the grass instead. The second was on Old Carp Road on my way back to Kanata. No, I wasn't in the car and it wasn't moving. The claustrophobic feel of the rows of trees closing in on the road just seemed to speak to me. The third photo is from Huntmar Road facing the edge of Kanata Lakes. This is the very edge of suburban Ottawa at the very edge of day.

Not my most inspiring efforts but they all spoke to me somehow and it's important now to just keep this thing moving.

Some of your frames always are amazing. The "amount" of Sky in the Third picture, one can easily pan down with more green and the town in center. But you chose to cover more, plane, blue sky (signals that you are a sky lover). But that has given more color to that low light picture. Love that frame.
