Taken from my back yard.
Today, after breakfast, I sat down and wrote about 1,500 words (I really wanted to get the manuscript up over 39,000, and I just managed it). Then I read for a bit, and around lunch hopped into the car to go check out Big Valley.Continue reading “Writing Retreat 2022: Wednesday”
I went to visit my friend Tim up at Wasagaming. We went out to Spruces for sunset, and on the way back to town we stopped in at the golf course/wishing well scenic spot. I was scouting possible locales for future astrophotography (it was cloudy that night, so I didn’t get any stars shot last night), and I decided to try my hand at HDRing the post-sunset glow in the sky.
I think it turned out OK.
HDR, or High Dynamic Range: You take multiple photos in quick succession, at different exposures, and then combine them to pull out the most detail at all light levels. I used the following 3 photos to make the above image (manually edited in GIMP).
Some of my best photos (well, in my opinion) of the year that was.Continue reading “Favourite images, 2021″
Some corn at the edge of town, shot right around golden hour.
The photo above is, in fact, a composite of three photos, a handheld HDR composition. The three photos are below.
And then, a sunset.

My friend Tim is camping up at Wasagaming in Riding Mountain. I went to visit him last night, and before I came home we went to Spruces to check out the twilight. (We’d planned to check out the sunset but we got to talking, and time got away from us a little bit. So it goes.)
Some lovely crepuscular light there.
We saw a wolf, too, trotting down the highway, but I didn’t get a photo of him.
As I was leaving Wasagaming last night, the sun was setting.
Just off the #1. It was still too bright at 10 PM for astrophotography, but I did like the look of the sky.
On the way home from Virden.
There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.—Jo Walton
Kathleen came down from upstairs and said, “You should check out the sunset.”
She wasn’t wrong.
