I live in a country environment, located between two cities….. Say now that would make a great tale !
We didn’t get out a whole lot this winter. It was a weird winter. Lots of storms and ice and rain and bleh weather……….. Winter is my least favourite season and I want it gone !
Well this Blog is a bit overdue as we did this two weeks ago but I have been laid up so just getting around to it now ! (Plus I FORGOT until I was going through some photos this morning)
Maple in the County is a yearly event held in Prince Edward County, Ontario. We try to go every year and it’s always a fun day.
Saturday 9 March, after we left Presquile, we headed to Signal Brewery for their Festival. We had pre-purchased our tickets and headed out back to the booths. The booths were all set up along the Moira River behind the buildings. Signal Brewery was open as was Henry’s.
So this past weekend was pretty good, hectic though ! We had photos in one of our photography clubs photo display this weekend at the Quinte Mall. Photo-Nat photography club to be precise. Every year our members display their photos in the hopes of increasing our membership and to display our work. We also volunteer to man OR woman the display booth lol. The photos were all fantastic, a lot of talent in this group of people. It was a great weekend and I think we did acquire some new members but we will see when we have our next meeting, which is Wednesday 27 February. Our guest speaker will be Mark Raycroft who is an awesome speaker. He has written books on wildlife, more specifically moose and deer and also has a Podcast called Wild and Exposed.
It’s that time of year again. One of our photo clubs, which is a naturalist club, is doing a photo show. No we aren’t nude…………..but you can only display nature photos, wildlife, landscapes, flowers, insects etc.
As they say, “No hand of man” may be shown in your photos. This is okay by me, it’s my favourite kind of photography.
Off to the RCAF Museum at 8 Wing Trenton better known as the National Air Force Museum of Canada. We were to meet others from our Brighton Photo Group for our Field Day. Cameras – check; Tripods – check; money for lunch – check ! All ready to go – Check !
Our goal today, (other than have fun and go for lunch)………was:
“to use selective focus to isolate your image. And to add an extra dimension, you’ll be challenged to photograph geometric shapes of aircraft bits and pieces. For example, when looking at the “silver dart,” photograph the triangular shapes of the struts and supports, isolating them from the background to make a work of art.”
Have I mentioned how much we enjoy going to the Old Church? Maybe 3-4 dozen times? lol We headed there again last night to see a group that we have seen before but I really enjoy their music so here we are again.
Well that was a fun night last night ! We headed to the Regent Theatre in Picton for a concert. It was pretty cold and I didn’t want to leave my house but we did. I think it was only about -17 Celsius when we left, colder with the wind chill. And the drive was on the back roads to Picton but they were in pretty good shape.
