I bet you're thinking "what's he doing sharing a winter photo already", so we probably don't share the same appreciation for snow.

Secret Weapon for Landscape Photography!

Overlooking the landscape. 

Fall! A perfect time of year to be in Ontario.  Took a little walk the other day and happened upon this lookout.  Actually, I don't know what they are called, so I attached a pic at the end of this post.  I've seen them and understood their use for hunting, but wow. What an idea for photography to get an elevated view.

The Difference a Few Days Makes

A fully green giant maple tree, viewed from the edge of the driveway a week and a half ago. This is a before photo of the fall foliage change. by chris gardiner photography www.cgardiner.ca

Fall. Blink and you may miss the colours change.  I used to try to fly home from the west for the changing of the leaves, but it's always peaking at slightly different times of the year, and is not around for long when it does happen.   This post will show you a before and after style comparison of just how quickly it can go from a late summer feel to a deep fall feel.

There are so many things to love about this time of year.  Whether its the changing trees, the quieter parks, or the dropping temperatures.
I got out for a few scenic excursions this autumn and here is one of the frames I came back with.

A nice stretch of road, Ontario, Canada
Fall is in full effect here and barely have had time to jot down this little post.  Too many beautiful places to see.
This is when Ontario is truly at it's prime.

It's that time of year! And for the first time, we have trees on the property we can pick ourselves.  We gathered about 40 lbs of apples in ten minutes of ground level picking. Still loads more up high!

Picture of the Day : From Niagara Falls

Another one from Niagara Falls. I've shared a few before, and this likely won't be my last.  You can go there and feel like you have been tourist-trapped from the moment you park, or you can go in search of those views where you block out all the rest of civilization.

Time Lapse : Post Processing

Here's a little clip showing something new I tried in the time-lapse realm of things.  I haven't really heard of or learned it from anyone, just related to blending layers and exposures in photoshop I guess really.

So read on for the what, the why, and all that stuff.
