Weekly photo of January 30, 2016

I was walking along the old Canal Soulanges in Pointe-des-Cascades before going to work to see if I could find something interesting. I did took some shots but was not really satisfied, as I walked back to my truck I finally “saw” a good shot while looking at the water. The reflection of the old Lighthouse and a tree on the water’s surface, as a bonus the light inside the lighthouse was in function. I tried different ISO and F/stop to obtain the shutter speed I needed to blur the slow flowing water of the Canal.

The shot was taken with my Canon 7D and 10-18mm STM at 18mm, ISO 250, 1 sec. at f/9.

I went to a frozen river to play around with an old lens, my Soligor C/D 80-200mm/3.5. I finally got that shot with a 1 second exposure at f/9.5.

I arrived at the Rouge River in Grenville before sunrise in late October, suddenly close to sunrise the clouds behind me took a pink/orange color that casted that warm glow on the landscape. Taken with my 7D and 24mm STM, ISO 100, 25 sec. at f/11, tripod.

This morning it was -4°C when I woke-up, I headed to a field near my home that I knew that will have a lot of frost. But the most interesting subject was Clover leaves caught in ice in a waterhole.

Taken with my Pentax K50 and Tamron 90mm Macro, tripod.

I found this dead Dragonfly laying on Sundews (Carnivorous plants). It’s not the plants that killed the Dragonfly because it’s too big for them, the Dragonfly just died there. The heavy dew on the Dragonfly added the final touch on this cold morning. Taken with my Pentax K50 and Tamron 90mm Macro at f/14, tripod.

It’s been some weeks now that I’ve posted a photo, I didn’t had time and didn’t take much photos. Yesterday I went Frog hunting with my camera and came back with Bullfrog shots.

I found this one particularly interesting with the blood sucking Mosquito on the Frog’s nose !

I used extension tubes on my Canon 400mm/5.6 L to get closer, my camera was mounted on my tripod which was immersed almost completely in the water to get that eyes view.
