During my down time, I make regular outings to shoot photos locally. Living in central Ontario, especially here on the edge of the Bruce Peninsula, there's plenty to photograph. One of my favorite subjects is the Georgian Bay shoreline in Bruce Peninsula National Park. Here are a few recent photos from Halfway Log Dump, which I consider to be one of the premier landscape photography locations in the entire province.
On a typical landscape outing, I'll shoot between 50 and 200 images in a morning or evening. I aim for a diverse array of images: compressed landscapes with a medium telephoto, wide-angle shots and of course a variety of horizontal and vertical compositions. I also try to vary exposures to create dramatic effects. In the case of the two bottom photos below, you'll see that I chose slow shutter speeds (1/4 - 1/2s) to show subtle motion blurs of the waves crashing over the boulder. Check out the captions for specifics about each image.
