2018-09-08   THE WIDE AREA OF THE FALLS

By | 2018-09-06T21:34:31+00:00 September 7th, 2018|Canada|

I was impressed that the Niagara Falls are two falls. One of it on the Canadian side and the other on the American side. The whole area is more significant than I thought. Often I have seen many Youtube videos, pictures and documentaries of sight, and then I am a bit disappointed when I am standing before the attraction. The opposite was true with the Niagara Falls, more excitement and spectacle than I have imagined.

2018-08-20   THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC

By | 2018-08-19T18:01:40+00:00 August 19th, 2018|Canada|

Thank you for the music and thank you for the show, magnificent and spectacular Cirque Du Soleil. Seen in the hometown, in the tent in Toronto. With my camera at the ready, I tried to catch the decisive moments. I had to balance the right mixture from ISO, shutter speed, and f-stops, because of the dim lights, the movements on the stage and my situation with the hand-held camera.

2017-11-28  TORONTO WITH THE IPHONE

By | 2017-11-27T20:04:57+00:00 November 28th, 2017|Canada|

I was at the Comic-Con, watching Star Wars troopers and Manga-comics. Then there were three hours spare time before I met with my wife again. I used a tourist coupon for a harbor cruise.  Since it was very hectic before I entered the boat, I had only my iPhone with me. My self-proclaimed challenge was shooting photos of the boat trip with my iPhone. From time to time I like it to be restricted to only one tool and try to get the best out of it.  😎

2017-11-18  TORONTO FROM THE CN TOWER

By | 2017-11-17T21:47:01+00:00 November 18th, 2017|Canada|

Toronto is a power-metropolis, 10-lane streets, excellent infrastructure, a vibrant city. Modern buildings, many young an hip residents. From CN tower you get a great view of the city area. In three days I saw Cirque du Soleil, Comic-Con with Stan Lee, sightseeing with a speedboat. 😎

2017-11-15  HUNTSVILLE IN CANADA, THE TOWN WITH THE LAKE

By | 2017-11-14T21:01:49+00:00 November 15th, 2017|Canada|

It is a funny thing in Huntsville, the lake is part of the city, and many residents use boats for shopping and dining. My wife Karin and I were sitting in a restaurant at a big nachos-cheese bowl, as many guests were berthing whit their vessels at that jetty on the photo.  🙂 It was shot with Sony A7R, Sony Distagon T* 24mm f/2 ZA SSM Lens and LA-EA4 adapter.

2017-11-04  RAINBOWS AT THE FALLS

By | 2017-11-04T13:04:42+00:00 November 4th, 2017|Canada|

Capturing a rainbow at the falls is relatively easy.  The bright sun mixed with water dust creates the rainbows over the bay of the Niagara River, giving more excitement to that fantastic nature spectacle.

Acrobatic performances, great music, and singing, choreographic masterpieces, all come to an end. The team builds a circle and congratulates to the audience. The people cheer and acclaim for this complete synthesis of art. Cirque du Soleil presents itself again as the top performing circus show in the world.

2017-08-13  FOG AT THE FALLS

By | 2017-08-10T19:10:21+00:00 August 13th, 2017|Canada|

One of the many spectacles at the Niagara Falls. The origin of this water fog is the sheer power and size of the falling water masses. Before my visit I underestimated the falls a bit, thinking they may be a bit overhyped, as I have seen this with some sights already. But the opposite is true, great and gorgeous. There are two kinds of falls, a big water valley and a great view from the Canadian side. And you will get wet, sometimes. 🙂

2017-07-17  SUN IS BREAKING THROUGH THE TREES IN CANADA

By | 2017-07-16T20:31:44+00:00 July 17th, 2017|Canada|

The sheer size of these unbelievable big lakes south of Algonquin Park, Ontario, reminded you more of the open sea instead of lakes. We took an afternoon tour with a rented motor boat, near the evening we started going back to the rental station, where we had some difficulties finding the right waterway back between the lakes, because from our distance all looked nearly the same. 🙂 There I took some photos with the sinking sun breaking through the trees and shimmering on the water.

2017-05-29  TORONTO FROM MY HOTEL ROOM

By | 2017-05-26T20:21:08+00:00 May 29th, 2017|Canada|

This photo was the view from my hotel room in Toronto, cool, eh? The first thing before I unpacked my suitcase was to take an HDR shot of this modern building. I like the placement of the elements of the white building blocks. A good contrast to the gray background gives a sculptural, plastic look. I had to photograph through window glass, which I try to avoid, but the window was clean, so I gave it a try, and it worked out not so bad. 🙂
