Very early this morning

The full moon was dropping below the horizon, the lake was covered in mist, and the reflection of the moon on the calm waters lit up the whole beach

A few shots with my new lenses

After a year of lusting after them, I finally ordered a wide angle lens and a macro. They arrived yesterday and I got out this morning to take a few shots (click on the image to see a larger version)

Reworking some old shots

Worth getting up early for

Yesterday morning was one of those times when it was worth getting out of bed before the sun came up to paddle around the lake and get some shots of the sun rise.

As the sun came up over the lake, I captured the reflection of the clouds

And once the sun was over the tree line, all of the mist burned off the lake and the sky turned a brilliant blue

Once I returned to shore I found more brilliant colours

All images shot with a Canon 5D and a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 in manual mode. Images converted from RAW and saturation adjusted in PS

My favourite subject to dogs.....

Pictured here is one of my Newfoundland Dogs, Neptune, swimming out to rescue me. I captured this shot while hanging over the side of my boat with my 5D precariously dangling inches above the water.

My rescue, Marin, shows us what rescue is all about

Below are a few shots of my girl Zoe


Pictured here is Floyd my Basset Hound.

I captured this goofy shot of him when he was about 7 weeks old, rolling around on my lawn being a character, as usual. This picture really captures the essence of who he is - my little clown.

We adopted Floyd from a rescue group who saved him from being euthanized - his "breeder" (a back yard breeder) figured she'd kill him because he had an umbilical hernia. Here we are, a year and a half later and Floyd's hernia has gone away on it's own with a few months of us pushing the hernia back in each day. Certainly not anything to destroy a dog over.

Now Floyd spends his days hanging out with our Newfoundland Dogs, trying to figure out why he's so much shorter than everyone else. These are some shots of him....
