Northern Ontario Weekend Escape
Sometimes you just have to get away from it all. East of Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario, up to a dozen friends gather each fall to hunt, fish, eat, and enjoy rare friendship. Of course I have a Nikon close at hand most all the time. On Monday a couple of us took a drive in a brand new Toyota Tacoma pickup and wandered of the beaten path a bit. Seeing a huge puddle across the road, we pondered and ultimately decided that it deserved a high speed crossing. I walked ahead and got into a low vantage point. Looking for f/4, I needed to bump up the ISO just a bit in order to get 1/2000 shutter speed. I wasn't sure just how big of a splash there would be, but I assumed it would look great. The headlights just happened to be on, and they really add to the dramatic look.
On Tuesday, a morning fishing trip in the fog slowly yielded some beautiful views as the fog burned off. I was taken with a little cabin alone on a small rocky island. The image without manipulation was quite nice but a couple of different treatments in Adobe Lightroom show some nice effects that make it suitable for print and framing.
Whenever a quick trip with new scenery comes to an end, it's a treat to review photos and to share them. They will serve to spark memories and to illustrate stories of adventures far from home for years to come.
