Amazing Canadian Sun Rise

Well, when you can get out of bed around 5:00 am, you can capture a great sun rise. These shots are from Ontario, Canada. It's Ice Lake, just outside Gore Bay, Ontario. Although I didn't have a tripod (which would have been very useful), I simply held on tight at 1/40-800 second shutter speed, ISO 640, 28mm focal length and aperture F5.0. I also like grabbing a tree branch in the foreground to help give the pictures some depth.


I attended a Native Canadian Indian Pow-Wow in Ontario last week. This was a great experience overall and a wonderful chance to catch some great shots. I used my Canon 50D and 28-200mm f5.6 lens (my normal travel lens).

Notre we come.

These first cousins are heading to the University of Notre Dame this fall as incoming freshman....their dream come true.

Detroit Fireworks

I carried my 28-200mm lens to the Detroit city fireworks a couple weeks ago. It's not the best quality lens, but it gets the job done for the occasion. I used my Canon 50D and held the camera at my waste and let it rip....primarily keeping the lens open at 28mm to capture the widest view.
