    Unfortunately quite a hazy day, early this year so there was still some ice.
    This is acutally the most southern point of Canada as far as I know.

    no, actually one exposure only, at 1/200 s. so there is no motion blur either. But you are right, at the resolution i posted it at, it looks a bit strange, but that is an optical illusion created by the structure.

    Who is Mr Barlow? ;)

    That place was actually deserted, except for one birder.

    thanks, actually it was a very bad day for photography. had to wait a long time to have some half hour where such shots were possible.

    #2 pretty much sums it up. 90% of that day I had light like that.

    in most not much is happening (for my taste). But I think #5 is beautiful. I love the lines of the sky, the water and the land. Excellent picture. :thumbup:

    you are absolutely right here.

    it was an empty place, and as I took those in a hurry when the sun came out for a couple of moments, I might not have gotten the best perspectives :confused:
