the falls at louth, niagara

the falls at louth, niagara

tuesday night i went out with mike to louth to shoot. we’ve been there before but only in the winter. so much less water and easier access to the upper part of the falls than in winter conditions. this is a 78 image panoramic image that took over half an hour to complete shooting, and days to assemble due to the large file size. add in long computer loading times for even simple processes (levels, etc.) and i have an image that took actual days to capture/edit/process. i’ve been considering making this print on canvas as well, its the largest shot i’ve ever compiled coming in at 1GB in file size and 174.4 megapixels.

on saturday we had a celebration for my grandfather turning 90 years old. i was blessed enough to be able to make it and help him celebrate his long life and good health with friends and family. his age is strictly a number…he is still sharp, he still cuts hair, he still grows vegetables, still cuts the lawn, and is still the life of the party.

this is a shot paired with yesterdays. this is the same waterfall but as a panorama. it is a 66.8 megapixel shot (10963 x 6089 = 66,753,707 pixels) made of 25 shots with 8 second exposure each. it took awhile to complete (and even longer to assemble) but i’m happy i did it. i eventually plan on making it a 6 x 3 ft canvas or maybe crop to 4 x 4 ft square canvas.

the other day michelle, jon, alex, and i went to decew falls in st. catharines. it’s really a beautiful area and a fun hike. heres two 8 second exposures with a flash to freeze them at the lower decew falls. i used some neutal density filters as it was the middle of the day. tomorrows photo is the same waterfall but as a panorama.

i was camping on manitoulin island this past weekend. the weather wasn’t the greatest, but good times were still had. i didn’t really take any photos i liked except for this out of focus (on purpose, i promise!) of a small lake on the island. the water there is a beautiful blue/green.
