I’ve been wanting to hit Polson pier to take photos of Toronto at sunset for a long time. Well, the timing and the weather finally came together. There are a number of city scape shots in my flickr photostream. But tonight’s photo of the day is this wide-angle HDR photo I took right near sunset. Came out better than I thought.

Yes, I missed yesterday! After 35 in a row I missed a day. It’s not because I didn’t take any pictures, I did, but I was crazy busy until after midnight. None of the shots I took came out. So instead of just posting a blurry mess, I posted nothing.

Here is something refreshing to cool you down on a hot summer day.

Today was a busy day and I didn’t really have time nor the opportunity to really take some good pictures. This is where taken a new and good picture every day gets hard. It’s 10pm, you’re tired, it’s raining out and you have to find something around the house to photograph and try to make it good. Not sure I succeeded today, but I tried and I experimented a little.

This was taken from the 15th floor at St Michael’s hospital. We were taking a tour of the the Labour and Delivery centre and I snapped this on my iPhone.

Woo number 31! I have now taken and posted a new photo everyday for a month. Not to bad and just getting started.

Today’s photo of the day is a fancy 6 stacked kite against a beautifully blue sky and wispy clouds. Very little adjustment was done to this photo, that’s the blue that came out of the camera.

There was a crazy thunderstorm today and rained a lot for a short period of time. In fact there was even a rainbow and I did get a picture of. But it’s not the photo of the day. It’s in my photostream if you’re interested. After the rainbow I ran across this snail on my front step, it’s the photo of the day.

Lacking a true macro lens, I popped on my 55-300mm.

_DSC0506

Shot in RAW, levels adjusted in Lightroom 4. (Exported to jpeg at 60)
Nikon D5100, 300mm, ISO100, F5.6 1/15sec exposure.

Without the VR on the 55-300mm lens, I never would have been able to get this shot handheld at 1/15th giving me an ISO of 100.

Here are the rules:
1) I have to upload one new, original photo to the blog every day.
2) The photo has to be taken on that day. No using photos taken in previous days.
