Breaking out of a creative rut sometimes requires getting out of your comfort zone.  Luckily my wife was heading to New York city for a business trip and I decided to tag along.  I would get the typical touristy shots of towering modern buildings inter-playing with the city’s heritage, but what I really wanted to do was explore Manhattan at night.  I don’t usually get a chance to experiment with night photography and this was a great opportunity.

I pass Kitchener’s Stanley Park Natural Area every day as I head into work.  Its trail follows the Grand River all the way to Bingemans and dotted with plenty of fishing spots – although I’ve never come across anyone actually catching fish.  I hang out here every few months to observe the changing seasons and Autumn is a bit of a magical time of a peaceful time in this natural oasis.

“Let’s go and shoot some fall photos” a friend asked a week ago.  With my camera freshly returned from being repaired I was itching to run it through it’s paces; spending some time outdoors in the fall weather sounded like a fantastic plan.  Although Southern Ontario has plenty of spots to catch the trees turn colour, we decided to explore a part of the province that we don’t normally get to see.  We headed to “Grey County“, an area that covers Mt. Forrest to Georgian Bay, and take the “Beaver Valley” driving route that we found on the Grey County tourism site.

We all have an travel bucket list.  Whether it’s to go see the African Savanna, drive along the Pacific Coast on US Route 1… we have a list that we always seem to be saying “later” to.  Iceland was always near the top of my list (perhaps even the top)  – the majestic cliffs, the waterfalls and geysers… it’s a paradise for anyone that loves pressing the shutter button on camera.  For some reason it’s always seemed such a far place to travel, even though it’s closer than many European destinations so the trip was always being put aside.  However, when a co-worker and his girlfriend uncovered an IcelandAir promotion that included hotels and a trip to catch the Northern Lights there were no more excuses!  My wife and I were ready to head out even if it was in the middle of February!
