Smoke On The Water


While I was taking Milky Way photos across Ragged Lake, I noticed there was quite the mist coming up. Only one thing to do! Must wave the flashlight across the water during one of the exposures. Well, here you go!

Cooking in Burwash


An old Pendrith Bake-o-Mat machine from the kitchen area of the now abandoned Burwash Industrial Farm / Correctional Centre. This prison used to be a working farm but it was shut down in the 1970′s. Here I’m using multiple flashlights to brighen parts of the machine in the otherwise dark room. Vandals have been all over the place in here sadly.

Two Heavens


A picture of my canoe at our campsite on Ragged Lake in Algonquin Provincial Park. The canoeing is one heaven while the heavens above include the Milky Way.

Canoe and Milky Way on Ragged Lake


Another view of my canoe resting on the shore at our Ragged Lake campsite in Algonquin Provincial Park. This is a single exposure – shot in RAW and I used a flashlight to “paint” in the canoe.

Welcome to Burwash


The entrance to the main building at the Burwash Industrial Farm / Burwash Correctional Centre. The facility was at one time a working farm and prison, but it was shut down in the 1970′s after some changes to correctional practices in the Province of Ontario. The building is now a heritage site but you can see the vandalism here has somewhat reduced that.

Camping on Threenarrows Lake I


I spent the weekend canoeing and camping in Killarney Provincial Park. This is one of my favourite places in the world.

On this trip, the goal was to camp and fish on Threenarrows Lake in the interior of the park. This meant portaging 3km over one mountain, and returning on a 1.2km portage over a higher mountain.

This night was the only one on the trip that provided a clear night sky so we popped some flashlights on inside the tents. Here’s the result.

Adirondack Campsite II


A view of our campsite on Lila Lake in Adirondack State Park, with a starry sky and we lit up the tents inside again. This is on campsite #20… which I’m told is the best one on the lake. This is a single exposure – a RAW image so no compositing required.
