Thunderstorm in Burlington!

These are just a few of my favourite shots from the thunderstorm that occured August 24, 2011 throughout Southern Ontario.  Apologies for the same location for all of the photos, there was a tornado warning out for the area and I didn’t feel like venturing outside!  Plus my power was out – walking down 15 floors was not very appealing at the time.

Thankfully no tornadoes developed and nature produced one of the most spectacular light shows I have ever seen!

A firetruck can be seen at the bottom left in this shot.  I would see one every 15 minutes or so traveling around my area

DeCew Falls!

I have been pretty busy lately editing wedding photos and haven’t had much time to put together posts on here, so I figured I would put up a couple of shots that I took last summer at DeCew Falls in St. Catherine’s, Ontario.

The walk down to the falls is…interesting.  After repelling down a vertical rockface using an old rope that had been left there to assist other adventurers, I was faced with really steep slopes and a challenging descent to the base.  There’s also a really creepy old railway tunnel you can venture into if you have some flashlights!  Can’t wait to make it back there!

 

This is a shot from the lower falls

 The upper falls!  Great area for swimming 🙂

Thanks for reading!

BC Nature Shots

Recently, I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding out in BC (blog post coming soon).  If you have never been, make sure you get out there at some point in your life.  I didn’t have much time to travel around the area, but here are a few shots that I collected.

Hope you like them 🙂

My family has a hummingbird feeder in Ontario and its fantastic to catch a glimpse of one every now and then, but on the Sunshine Coast, they are so numerous you only have to wait 30 seconds before seeing one.  At one point, they kept coming until every spot on the feeder was full, each one shuffling around to make room for the next.  Reminded me of the song ‘Everyday I’m Shufflin’ (click here to see what the heck I’m talking about)

We found a starfish!

Thanks for checking my stuff out!
