On one of my Owen Sound errand days this winter I stopped in to walk up the short trail to Weaver Falls, a beautiful short walk, but a difficult falls to get good photos of.
I've been thinking that I needed to learn how to take 'slow' pictures of waterfalls like this to get the photos I wanted. Then I thought I could go out in all seasons and get comparable shots. But no, it's still not that simple. The flow of water over the seasons, the time of day, and the weather all make a big difference. Sometimes an overcast day gives you a better chance for good lighting, especially for those north facing waterfalls. But then I don't get the chance to always control all those variables, so what's a would-be photographer to do but keep trying.
After getting a nice snowfall on Wed. last, while much of southern Ontario got freezing rain, it was looking wintry again, but today the temperature soaring above freezing, and the snow on the driveway melted. Now it's raining. I fear that any chance for xc skiing is over for this year, but after this rain, and a freezing night or to as we're supposed to get this week, you'll be able to walk right across the surface of the snow in boots!
