Fall Colours at Algonquin Park

Although I’ve been living in Toronto for 20 years, I’ve never visited Algonquin park in autumn. This year, I’ve decided to pick up my camera, and enjoy the famous autumn fall colours in Ontario. I booked the hotel just 1 week before going, so that the Algonquin Park Fall Colour Report is showing PEAK. I did my research on the trails that would be the best for fall colours, and planned out my 2 day trip. So, here we go:

We first arrived at Huntsville, 2 hours north of Toronto. Lion’s Lookout just behind the Canada G8 Summit building; and at the top of the trail, you can get a nice view of the town. Love these arrows on the road:

Innisfil Sunflower Field

First of all, welcome to my new site! I finally got my own domain. 🙂
I went to this sunflower field last Saturday, with my girlfriend, who’s also my model. I’ve always wanted to shoot sunflower field, this is my first time.

Aren’t they lovely? Sunflower always gives me this happy sunshine feeling. I really like this picture, my friend among the sea of sunflowers.

P.S. The address of the sunflower field is 1574 9 Line, Innisfil, Ontario

First Time Night Sky Photography

Last week, I joined this night sky photography group to learn how to shoot the moon and startrails. It was very cool! After a few tries to adjust ISO and shutter speed, I was able to get this picture, I can’t wait to shoot during mid autumn festival!

Then the group headed to a parking lot of a hiking trail in the middle of nowhere. It took me some time to get focus. ISO 1600, 25 seconds exposure. I only got about 14 photos when I left around 11:30pm. But watching Startrails software stacking them one by one was simply amazing!

They are not bad for the first try, right? I am looking forward to the next meetup.

Toronto Christmas Market

因为我比较喜欢室外的landscape摄影,在冬天,我对摄影的热情如同气温一样,降到了0度。 今年决定不要再懒惰,一定要练习一下冬天夜景摄影。 多伦多酿酒区每年12月份都会举办圣诞集市, 有圣诞舞台, 圣诞树, 各种传统工艺, 色彩缤纷的灯光。

想练习让灯光虚幻的照片, 研究了好久, 终于拍出来了, 但是不知道做得是否正确:

寒冷的夜晚, 三脚架不小心设置低了:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
