Roundabout Night, Kensington London Photograph
Perspective from 27 floors up. One of my more daring night photography shots. Holding my camera out at this height was decidedly scary, even if I did wind the strap around my wrist.It's not often one gets a perspective like this in London, so it was worth it. I just happened to look out of the window and thought I had to get this shot.This is now one of my favourite images. I was curious to see how it turned out and because it was so unexpected I was very happy I got this clear a shot.

It was a great day to get out of town. I love living downtown, however, I wanted to take photos in a different environment for a change. You need a completely different approach for this to shooting an urban photo. Along the bank of the Niagara River there's an observation point and because this is such a scenic view on a fabulous sunny day like it was that day it's often full of people, admiring the view and taking pictures. So I took this shot before getting to the observation point and we also headed there early. Just as well as no sooner had I taken my images several cars pulled up. I actually stood on a low wall to get this shot because I wanted to be elevated to get as much of the beautiful view as I could. I don't think any picture can do this scene justice, it's quite incredible. Just looking at this image takes me right back to the moment I captured it.

I'll be using my blog to say a little more about some of my photos, giving a little more information about them. In July Harry and I decided to head out of Toronto just for a change from downtown Toronto. We went to Niagara-on-the-Lake, a very picturesque little town. Someone mentioned to me that Harbour House was haunted... I didn't believe it. It looked far too beautiful to be haunted. I took this shot of Harbour House from across the road and on the corner, which was the best vantage point to get the house and the side road in frame. I was fortunate to get a clear view ( it was a Saturday and so there were many visitors in the town) and that really was the colour of the sky.
