Last of the Icicles on the Georgian Bay shoreline

Unseasonably warm weather put a quick end to the great icicles along the Georgian Bay shoreline that I'd been photographing last week. I made it out for only one more shoot before they had melted away... see photos below (taken with an EOS 5D mark II, EF 70-200/2.8 L IS lens and Singh-Ray LB polarizer). Thanks to my friend Don Wilkes for clicking the shutter on the second one while I smiled! 

Today I finally traded in my trusty 70-200/2.8 IS lens for the lighter and reputedly sharper f/4 version of the lens. I'm looking forward to the significant weight savings (my camera pack is heavy!). I'll be hitting the trails over the next while to test it out.

    Eth, loved the icicles photos!

  2. That ice is insane! Awesome shots there

  3. thanks for the nice blog :)

  4. That's impressive icicles and very nice capture, indeed. I was hoping the weather cooperates till the Eastern long weekend, when I was planning to get to the Bruce.

    are the icicles all gone by now? :-(

    I went tent camping to McRae lake last weekend, and was barely able to find any icicles hanging off the granite cliffs there.
