  • Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    I thought I had finished posting photos of Canada when I found this one. I thought that the photo had potential so after a bit of editing I ended up with a version I was happy with. The shot itself was one which I took while walking past this area. Set the camera up on […]

  • Quebec Boardwalk by Night

    Quebec Boardwalk by Night

    One of the main features of Old Quebec is The Château Frontenac and the vast boardwalk which sits in front of it. The boardwalk is a very busy thoroughfare during the day and especially at night. The dominant Château Frontenac is a now a luxury hotel in Vieux-Québec or Old Quebec which is currently operated […]

  • Chinese Gardens in Montreal Botanical Gardens

    Chinese Gardens in Montreal Botanical Gardens

    If you are in Montreal you must visit the Montreal Botanical Gardens. Highlight of these amazing gardens was the Chinese gardens and buildings. The vivid colours were striking with Greens and the reds from the buildings. In order not to white out the colours with the intense sun I found some shade and this allowed […]

  • Notre-Dame Basilica, Place d’Armes, Montreal

    Notre-Dame Basilica, Place d’Armes, Montreal

    The Notre-Dame Basilica, is located in Place d’Armes, Montreal, opposite where the photo of the Maisonneuve Monument was taken. Again the area was swarming with tourists so I opted for a long exposure. The shot was taken with the same wide angle Tamron 10-24mm lens. The result, Notre-Dame Basilica, is shown below. The photo is […]

  • Marché Bonsecours Montreal – A Second Version

    Marché Bonsecours Montreal – A Second Version

    I added a photo of Marché Bonsecours Montreal as part of my Project52 earlier this week but I have found an alternate version which might be of interest. I was taken earlier in the evening and from a slightly different angle. The sky is less red and it is easier to see the detail in […]

  • Marché Bonsecours Montreal Sunset – 33/Project52

    Marché Bonsecours Montreal Sunset – 33/Project52

    Of all the photos of Montreal I think this turned out the best. It is a photo of Marché Bonsecours Montreal at Sunset. Near sunset I could see that the sky would be quite interesting. I also had an ND9 and a ND Grad filter in my camera bag and decided to use these to […]

  • Montreal Street View – 32/Project52

    Montreal Street View – 32/Project52

    Street Photography is something I have being trying to do some more of recently and this next shot is a photo from Montreal which I really like because of the lighting and the way the sun hits the buildings. The sun was setting and the sky still had a bit of interest. There were also […]

  • Niagara Falls at Night – 30/Project52

    Niagara Falls at Night – 30/Project52

    Working without a tripod is always recommended, working without a tripod in low light is vital … how about doing a long exposure without a tripod? The following image was taken at Niagara Falls about 30 minutes after sunset and it was a 20 second long exposure of Niagara Falls at Night. Thanks to a […]

  • Timelapse of Ottawa, Canada

    Timelapse of Ottawa, Canada

    Just another time-lapse experiment taken in Ottawa. The footage was taken on the iPhone from the Fairmont Château Laurier looking down towards Parliament hill. The footage compresses about 1 hour 10 minutes into the under 60 second clip.  I was hoping to capture the early morning march and parade to Parliament Hill but it did […]
