Sun set with a twist…

One of my all time favorite places to be…photo taken with my iPhone

These stark, yet vibrant photos are some of my favorite to capture…take from a moving vehicle with my iPhone…

Another photo taken while driving with my iPhone…of course I wasn’t driving.  I enjoy this type of landscape, barren but every once in a while something cool pops up!

Another photo taken on the drive home of two of my favorite subjects, clouds and trees…

all in a row…

If you know me at all you know I love trees, especially “naked trees”…without leaves of course!   This was taken while driving on the way home from Florida…fyi…I wasn’t driving!   A crisp cold morning, brrrr.  There is a bit of dirty windshield showing up on the right hand side but I really liked this so excuse the dirt!

see you later Alligator…

These are such cool fellows…I’ve seen a couple outside the zoo one in particular up close and personal.

serenity…

This photo was taken a couple of years ago, while on our Friday early morning drive to the Rosseau Market.   I was not driving, hence the photo!  It is a tad blurry but I like the photo non the less!

Chief Commanda I

I’ve posted photos of the Chief Commanda previously…it was launched in 1946, and served Lake Nipissing until 1975 when it was replaced by Cheif Commanda II.  Chief I is now a restaurant on the waterfront.

sunset & silhouettes…

This is the sunset I posted last week, taken as I approached the beach…I like the silhouette of the trees on either side.

Saw this fellow and his companion last year…you could tell they were used to people being around as they didn’t appear to be the least bit concerned.

Hope to see you again…

I’ve been absent for awhile now, life happens…I hope to be around now!

I’m trying out a new theme, but not sure it is what I want as I can’t seem to make the photos larger to fill more of the page?  Will be playing around for the next little while so if you come by and see something unusual it is because I’m playing.

When I went out a couple of weeks ago it was just as the sun had set and the sky was awash with the most vibrant colors, I’d gotten out of the habit of keeping my camera in my vehicle but my trusty iPhone did the trick I think…

how to paint a sail boat!

Certainly an interesting undertaking…with a crane involved I’m sure expensive as well!

these photos where taken off the beach at Fort Zachery Taylor Historical Park…boat traffic was somewhat heavy that day!  It is an awesome view…

washed up…

Saw many pieces of coral like this washed up on the shoreline. It was windy & wavey  for the first few days, which meant the beach was covered in sea shells. A bit farther down the beach from our location it was soft sand, so our area is a bit of a catch all when windy…we knew this from last year.

tranquility…

I was looking through the hundreds of photos I took while away and realized 95% of them are of my granddaughter!  The other 4% are of family with her and 1% is of sites while away!   I didn’t realize I did this…was always taking a photo so thought there would be many to post but it turns out there isn’t…

Here is a simplistic one, but one that speaks to my heart!!!  While I don’t/can’t sail, I love the water…

the quiet side of South Beach from the pier…

more sunsets…

It is interesting how I’ve not seen the sunset for months and recently I’ve been able to capture it three times..awesome!   This one wasn’t as intense as some, but then it was just setting, I find the colors more vibrant a short while after the setting…didn’t stay around to see what happened that night as I wasn’t dressed warm enough!

sunset.2. dec.20.2014This photo was taken a few weeks ago right after a warmers spell…you can see the ridges of ice that built up due to the winds and then colder temperatures…makes for dangerous snowmobiling and walking…

perfect spot…

 Monday was a hot, humid, hazy day, which you can see in the distance of the  photo…but as I drove past the waterfront I decided to stop…saw this…perfect spot to sit, relax, and read a book!

Saturday at the North Bay Farmers’ Market

I’ve not posted photos of our local Market before but a first time for everything I guess…

Saturday not long after opening, before the crowds…you can see the RE/MAX balloon in the distance…they were offering free rides, but were accepting donations for the North Bay Habitat for Humanity

sat.june.21.remax.balloon.2.2014...

Mid morning, this is the west entrance of the Market, it is diffiuclt to tell but,  there are a total of 46 vendors.

a closer look at the RE/MAX hot air Balloon, if you look closely you can see that it is tied to the ground…it goes up and down but not away!

treasures of the sea???

It all depends on how you look at things, what you see…right?   I’m sure many see these as nothing of importance or worthy of a second look.   To me these are interesting finds…especially the beautiful empty intact shell!  Just look at the Nacre, or Mother of Pearl as it is known in the jewelry world… it is smooth, an even color, without damage.  For those who aren’t familiar, Nacre is the white inner lining of the shell, the outer layer of pearls is also Nacre.   This would make a beautiful piece of jewelry if you were into making something from raw materials such as this…

look what was washed up on shore after a windy day…

gray scale sunset…

when I take a photo of the sunset, sometimes the colors look right to me and sometimes they don’t…when they don’t I try the grayscale…I rather like it!
