Cavendish Beach, Prince Edward Island

Yesterday I drove out to Cavendish beach with my girlfriend Krista. We had a great time walking along the beach, dipping our feet in the water and looking at neat rocks in the warm weather. However, the Gulf of St. Lawrence waters are still a little cool for swimming.

Bridge in Milton, PE- Two for the Price of One

Here’s the bridge that replaced the bridge from yesterday’s photo.  It was such a beautiful spot, that I spent some time there shooting both digitally on my iPhone and on film with my old Pentax.  These shots were taken with my iPhone.  I love using lines in my photos.  Bridges are interesting to me, if not a bit cliche as a photography subject.

But hey… Things become cliche for a reason.

Sunset Over a Field in Brookfield, Prince Edward Island

20120501-141515.jpg

This is the sun setting over a field near my house in Brookfield, Prince Edward Island, Canada. I took this photo with my iPhone instead of my usual Pentax and 35mm film.

My thought process while taking this photo was primarily the rule of thirds, and how I could bring out the colours in the soil and grass. Notice the three main horizontal lines that loosely follow the rule of thirds, and the setting sun on the top left “thirds” intersection. I used my iPhones “HDR” feature which basically stitches together more than one exposure of the same shot providing a higher dynamic range. This accompanied with a contrast boost and an instagram treatment give this photo it’s final touch.

Enjoy!
