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.

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Great shot! Hardly a mark in the snow.

      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.
