Last week was family vacation week as we joined the in-law side of the family at “Uncle Ken’s Cottage” for the week. Insert in-law jokes here (most are applicable). It was a great time and I captured a number of great images, but most of my images are just for me and my family. I did, however, find the opportunity to sit on the dock and enjoy a cigar while capturing my first ever star trail image.
So by now many of you have heard about and even seen a number of images of this past Saturday’s “Supermoon”
I decided that I was going to take a trek out to capture this rarity that would not exist again for another 20 years or so, however, it appears as though the best time to capture the grandeur of said supermoon is at moonrise. Moonrise in my house is more commonly referred to as bedtime.
So after the kids were in bed, I packed up my gear and met up with a friend and we went down to the water to see what we could capture. This is when we realized that photographing the moon with no foreground to contrast is, could get a little boring. No fear though, the night was still perfect for shooting and the moon provided the opportunity to shoot some rather surreal long exposures.
I did get the one image of the moon, but I quickly found myself otherwise preoccupied.
Hit the frigid streets of North York with Jesse And Jo last night, we got some really great images as they did some of the things they like to do in the neighbourhood they love. Here’s a teaser:
Coruscate – \ KOR-uh-skayt \ , verb;
To give off or reflect bright beams or flashes of light; to sparkle.
To exhibit brilliant, sparkling technique or style.
That photographer Jay McIntyre really has a corucate personality!
