Toronto International Air Show 2017

This was a tricky airshow to shoot, as the overcast skies meant that there was often little contrast between the skies and the airplane(s) I was trying to shoot pictures of. Much tweaking needed to be done in LightShop for many of these images in order to bring out detail but also keeping noise to a minimum. All pics shot using the trusty Olympus E-620 with the fast 200mm lens.

Pictures are arranged in the order the airplanes appeared in the show, and their names are derived directly from the emailed show schedule for the day courtesy of cias.org.

As I was taking the last photo rain began to fall, which quickly led to a downpour. After about a half-hour the skies cleared again, but by that time I was across the CNE grounds, so that was it for me, until next year!

Visit to Sumida Aquarium, Tokyo

It was very crowded the day we visited Sumida Aquarium, so I didn’t have the luxury of having enough room or time to take some of the pics I would have wanted to take, but some did turn out alright:

Three White Kites

Love how this shot turned out: three white, almost translucent kites against a blue sky. Shot down by the lake, near the Leuty Lifeguard station.

Icicle Tree

A small tree covered in icicles down by the shore of Lake Ontario. This is a montage of several photos that were later merged in PhotoShop.
