Back from Canada

Just a quick note to let you all know that I am, in fact, back from Canada. I’ll have more photos soon (it was a very productive trip!) but I need to get caught up on a bunch of other stuff before I can begin post-processing in earnest. For now, I’ve posted a photo that I took of Perce Rock on Quebec Province’s Gaspe Peninsula using the Photodude’s patented “don’t look through the viewfinder” technique. The tide was receding and there was one place on the causeway out to the giant rock where the water was still mostly covering the path. Someone had placed some stones to make a way across the water. I held the camera right down on the water to make the most of the reflection and waited for people to make their way across the stepping stones. The biggest problem was keeping the horizon level and not cropping off the top of the rock. I confess that I did straighten this one a bit in Photoshop.
Many thanks to Doug for letting me borrow his Lensbaby for the trip. I did a whole series with it on the island of Bonaventure. I’ll post a few when I get the chance.
More to come…
