ISO-200 Forest Challenge
A good way to push our photographic skills and our camera gear is to give ourselves the occasional challenge. A little while ago I gave myself an ISO-200 forest challenge. The goal was to hike through the forest at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre on a dead calm day, and to keep my ISO at, or under, ISO-200.
Niagara Parkway Challenge
On occasion I like to create some photographic challenges for myself. Today I decided that I would venture out to a familiar area and allow myself only one photograph for each stop that I made. The challenge included being limited to one camera and one lens. I also set a time limit of one hour during which to capture all of my images. So… I grabbed a camera and headed out for my Niagara Parkway challenge.

During a recent trip to the Niagara Gorge area I hiked down to the shoreline adjacent to the Niagara Whirlpool. I happened to be there when a jet boat circled the area. Later that morning I had the opportunity to photograph two more jet boats from a different vantage point along the Niagara River. Continue reading Jet Boats on the Niagara River

For us, this part of Southern Ontario is only a 40 minute drive away. This short article features a selection of photographs that depict some of the evening colours at Niagara Falls.
