White Horse in fog, Milton, Ontario, Canada

White Horse in fog, Milton, Ontario, Canada

Today’s post features a few images that were created over the last couple of years. Living in a rural region of Ontario I often stop to photograph horses when the conditions are optimum or when neighbors ask me if I have time to take a few photographs of their horses. The above image of the horse in the fog was created last fall after I spent the better part of my morning photographing rusty old wrecks with Denise Ippolito and the Toronto Digital Photography Club – who can resist a white horse in fog 🙂

The foggy conditions of that morning were quite special and in the above image I liked the contrast between these two horses and the fog. A touch of Nik’s Detail Extractor was used to bring out a little detail in the trees behind the horses.


Above and below are some portraits of a neighbor’s horses. In the images below I could resist the temptation to apply an artistic rendering to them.

Rural winter landscape in fog_4622

Today the first significant snowfall of the season hit here in south-central Ontario. We currently have about 5 inches of snow on the ground and it is still snowing as I write this post. To mark this day I am posting an image, that for one reason or another, I did not post last winter. This scene is within walking distance of my home and was created on a foggy morning. Today was a busy day and I was unable to get out for any fresh winter imagery. Hopefully I will have time in the next day or two to do so, assuming the snow lasts that long, temperatures are expected to rise again in the coming days. I am looking forward to photographing several new locations this winter, as well as the usual favorite spots too. And the best part about winter photography – no mosquitoes. I can deal with the extreme cold temperatures a lot easier than I can with mosquitoes 🙂
