winter sun

    Newer Older

    I went to TO today with Lynn and decided on a walk around Bluffers Park while she visited her mother. I had expected to capture the texture and structure of the bluff slope ... but the winter sun and sky were just so beautiful. I know there is lens flare all through this image but I wanted to see how the 17-85 would handle shooting direct into the sun with no hood (it's on order) and .... I always shoot into the sun, screw the rules !

      Looks great, Doug. I was down at the lake a little further east in Whitby today at the same time. It was cold!

      Rules??? Who made up these "rules"????
      This is awesome Doug.... I was lamenting being with friends in TO today and not being able to pull myself away after seeing that sky.

      ARebbs ... not many people venturing out to the point at Bluffers to leave prints on the breakwall, though it wasn't very windy when I was there.
