‘Shroom.

I spotted what I’m pretty sure is a Yorkshire Pudding Mushroom today*.  I took my Nikon D610 and Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 to take a closer look.   * – I am aware that there is most likely no such thing.

The Quiet Side of Signal Hill

  I went out for a quick trip with my old(er) Nikon D7100 tonight for sunset. Probably the first time I’ve ever gone out specifically at sunset with no intention of shooting a sunset! Parking was a challenge, but I found a spot, and walked away from everyone else. Tonight was about the quiet side of Signal …

Another Sunrise

This will be the last until they’re at more respectable times! I went with the intention of improving Sunday’s video.  It was a bit windy for the video, and the morning wasn’t quite as well defined, but I might have some extra footage in case Sunday’s isn’t so good.  The wind is bad because the …

Summer Catch up

Despite the awful Newfoundland summer we’re having, I have been quite productively taking photographs. This is a long post, so go grab a drink and get comfortable (or click out). I have invested in a new full frame Nikon D610 camera which sits beside my very capable crop frame Nikon D7100. The FX sensor of …

Kent’s Pond and Rennie’s River

A small plant lodged in a rock on Rennie's River

Today was supposed to be a trip with Focal Play, to Rennie’s River, but the weather forcast was pretty bad, so it was cancelled.  I was looking forward to this, because despite being pretty much on my doorstep, I haven’t taken photographs there since about 2000.  So, this morning, I went there anyway.  On my …
