Winter Beauty

This winter I have been enjoying the view outside. It can be a little more challenging this time of year to find things to photograph, but that just means you need to bundle up and look a little closer.

Looking out over the icy blue Assiniboine River in Spruce Woods Provincial Park.

I love taking pictures of flowers’ intricate detail, but in the dead of winter there aren’t many flowers to photograph in the north. I was delighted to find these flower like heads on some bushes that caught my eye.

A half moon hangs above this rural farm basking the last rays of light from the setting sun.

Detroit River Fireworks - July 2016

This is two photos combined into one. I used the sky from one and the foreground from another and placed one over the other. The dramatic effect I got was exactly what I was looking for, minus the random people standing in the middle and on the far right. In the end I decided I kinda liked the silhouette people, giving the photo a more authentic feel.
