This week it’s a photo of a leaf that was on a thin layer of ice covering a road. sometimes a good subject is just at your feet in an urban environment. Taken with my Canon 7D and 24mm STM at f/11 on a tripod.
Here it is, my first photo of 2015 taken on 02 January 2015 before going to work i stopped at the old Canal Soulanges in Pointe-des-Cascades. I like that place in winter, the scenic varies depending on the temperature, as it gets colder the ice get thicker. I liked the directional pattern the ice took this time, probably from the mist coming from the waterfall that is just outside the right side of the frame. As a final touch i placed the Maple leaf caught in the ice near a strong point of the rule of thirds.
This week i took mostly shots of leaves caught in ice on a Lake near my work, it’s not always easy to find the best subject, but you know when you find the right one !

Didn’t had time to take photos this week, so i’m posting one taken in late Autumn. It’s a leaf caught underwater in the St-Lawrence river.
This week was not very productive for photography, so i just got some shots this morning. I’m sharing a Macro shot of a leaf frozen in a water hole.
I’m just starting this new series, i will post my favorite photo that i took every week, a photo that i like or represent something for me. So lets get started, November is a transition month between Autumn and real winter and opportunities or not always evident depending on the years. This week i’m showing a photo i took before going to work, it represent what the November month is for me, cold and brown.
