A little bit of country

landscape

A little bit of North Dundas, Ontario landscape.

Day 15 of Photography 101: Landscape. This photo was taken in North Dundas County in Eastern Ontario. The tree caught my eye. When I stopped to photograph it, I saw the barn. Well, needless to say, I was a very happy country girl.

Photography 101: Swarm

Canadian geese in my yard.

Day 14 of Photography 101, theme is Swarm. This is a photo taken a few years ago of the Canadian geese in my yard. They visit by the hundreds every spring and fall. They are very messy, and very chatty!

Seagulls

Not a good day for one of these seagulls.

Day 13 of Photography 101, capture a moment. Here’s one that shows that not every bird has a good day. The photo was taken at the beach in Iroquois, Ontario off of the St Lawrence River.

Mechanical Architecture

Mechanical architecture of a ski lift.

Onto Day 12 of Photography 101 where we post a photo representing architecture. It’s a topic that is so vast. There are so many choices. I’m choosing mechanical architecture. There’s something about knowing and seeing how things work that just appeals to me. This photo is part of the mechanics of a ski lift in Mont Tremblant, Quebec.

Snowy Day

Snow

Snowy day in the country.

Today was the first snowy day in North Dundas County, Ontario. I was driving around looking for interesting shots. I came across this field, and in the background were these bright orange trees. The snow wasn’t sticking to the ground, so it made the grass look greener than what it actually was. I liked the contrast of colors. I chose this photo for Day 11 of Photography 101: a Pop of Color.

Fortune Cookies

Fortune Cookies

I was awake hours before I had to work this morning. I thought I’d catch up on Photography 101: Mystery. I chose this subject as it’s always a mystery what fortune you’ll find inside the cookies.

Warmth

Warmth

Sunset across the field.

I rarely post photos of sunsets. However, for Day 9 of Photo 101, I thought I choose this photo to represent Warmth. It’s the sunset across the field from my house. There must have been hundreds of Canadian geese. You can see some flying away.

The Natural World

Patterns in a stream

Patterns in a stream

I found myself standing on a bridge, waiting for cars to go by. There was a stream underneath the bridge. It had a good current for one so small. I thought it make a cool pattern in the foliage.

Landmark

Windmill

Battle of the Windmill

Onto day 7 of Photography 101. This is my point of view of the historical site of the Battle of the Windmill which started on November 12, 1838 and ended four days later. For those interested, more information can be found on Parks Canada website, http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/lhn-nhs/on/windmill/index.aspx

Connect

Connect, by boat or bridge.

Day 6 of Photography 101 focuses on the interpretation of ‘Connect’. I was reluctant to post a photo of a bridge as it seemed cliché. That said, this photo depicts two modes of connecting, by bridge and by boat. I’m actually standing ride beside the Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge. The bridge was completed in 1960 and is actually in Johnstown, Ontario.
