Halifax & Newfoundland - Part 4

Two swans in Glynmill pond, Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Corner Brook is just a 15 minute drive from where I grew up (Pasadena) and the city is covered in the colours of fall.

The swans weren't shy, but perhaps they were hoping I'd have some lunch to share with them. (I didn't.)

It wouldn't be home without rain! It's been raining on and off ever since I got home, but it's making for beautiful soft light and saturated colours.

At the end of my walk around Glynmill pond, gulls were perched in the reflection of the reds, oranges, yellows and greens. I do love the fall.

The hills are just covered with the fall colours. They make even the cloudiest days bright, and I'm so glad I chose this time of year to come home.

It's Dad's birthday, and we drove down to Burgeo, a small town on the south coast of Newfoundland, together. Beautiful sandy beaches, sunny skies, and not another person in sight! Lit with a flash on a light stand, camera right.

More of Burgeo beach. I'm sure the water was cold today, but I've swum in this water in late August and it can be quite warm, and is always crystal clear. Treatment of this image involves a heavy red-channel monochrome conversion, then that layer reduced to 75% opacity (letting some colour back through) then a strong curves layer increasing contrast but just holding on to the lights/darks. It was actually a beautiful, breezy day. I just like this image this way.
