We started out the day today in Bridgewater and got a great sunrise reflecting in the river.  Some boats docked near by were our subjects for the first light!

 

 

 

 

We then started down the coast and I began my experiment with seeing how the Fuji X30 would do, shooting with it for the rest of the day.  I’ll let you judge for yourself, but I was very pleased with the kind of work I was able to do with this $599. camera!!  I think it will be a constant companion and I won’t doubt it’s potential ever again!!  By-the-way, a friend forgot his “L” bracket so I gave him the one I had on the X30 to him, so all these images are “hand-held”!!!  Makes it even more of an impressive performance!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, when I spoke to the Halifax Camera Club, Monday night I met an amazing man named Doug Murphy!  His ability to see faces in common places amazed me, so I promised him I would try to see faces on my trip.   Now these are not up to his standard, but at least I’m trying,  These are for you Doug!  You  can see his work at:   www.apex.photo.com

 

 

So one last shot, I processed another  image from Peggy’s Cove, thought I might share it too!!!!

From a cloudy morning with light mist to a nice afternoon, we shot all day and found some great subject matter!  This morning we worked a lot of fishing gear at Peggy’s Cove and finished off the day with some travel to our new location.  Great group of folks and Kevin Finch put us on some great locations!   Enjoy!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well another day in a great place!

Here’s looking at you!  I spoke to the Halifax Camera Club tonight, what a nice group of people, thanks my new friends for a warm welcome to Nova Scotia.  We finished up in the PEI today and found a few interesting things, not the least of which was a juvenile red fox that was very habituated to humans!  I suspect he has been getting free meals from the tourists at our last lighthouse stop!  He posed for half band hour!!!  We also found a unique tree decorated with lobster floats, the two shots below came from that road side stop!

 

 

At the lighthouse I found a bright red dingy and that was worth a stop!

 

 

The lighthouse was in pretty harsh light. but was the only round, wooden lighthouse on Prince Edward Island so you got to try anyway!

 

 

 

We start our Nova Scotia Tour in the morning, I’ll keep you posted!

Any day that ends like this is a great day!!!  The rain blew out and we had a blue sky puffy cloud day which worked well for boats and light houses!  Our last stop was one of the best sunset Ive seen in along, long time!  Really enjoying this side trip and anxious to join our group tomorrow night to start our exploration of Nova Scotia!  Here are some of my favorites from day two!

 

 

So another day in a beautiful place!  More soon!
