  I love the setting of this village. Winter has just left the area making the much of the terrain look dead. I'm sure a much different picture can be obtained in the summer and the winter. I hope to return at other times of year. A big thank-you goes out to Bill Wilson, a Halifax area Flickr contact, for helping me resolve equipment issues in order to get this session done. Two days earlier I had been to Peggy's Cove and here to Prospect. The winds were very strong that day but with the attitude "You don't get if...

  The Hector is the tall ship at Hector Heritage Quay in Pictou, Nova Scotia. The body of water is the convergence of the West River of Pictou, the Middle River of Pictou and the East River of Pictou as they join at Pictou Harbour and dump into the Northumberland Strait, between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

I did two kite aerial photography sessions several days apart at opposite ends of the beach named Playa El Palmar, Ixtapa, Mexico. Playa El Palmar is the nearest beach to Casa Candiles, the Bed and Breakfast where we stayed during our vacation. The B&B is about 10 minutes walk from the public access near the south end of the beach (beside the Barcelo Hotel). There are no small hotels or B&Bs on the beach as you will see from the photographs. The buildings are large hotels and condominium complexes. These images were obtained using a camera suspended below a kite...

While on vacation in Ixtapa, Mexico, the owner of our Bed & Breakfast, Casa Candiles, took us on a couple of field trips. One of these was to Barra de Potosi, about a 1/2 hour's drive south along the Pacific Coast from Ixtapa - Zihuatanejo. We planned to have a few hours there doing beach stuff and having lunch at one of the many beachside restaurants. It gave me time to fly kites as well as explore with my SLR. I did the terrestrial camera work first because I wanted to check out where would be best for catching the...

My previous Photo Boyz piece was about the 2nd outing by our threesome. I've decided to backtrack and cover outing number one for the sake of completeness and hopefully we will sporadically move forward from here with further sessions. Photo Boyz includes Bruce Amos, Murray McComb and myself. Our first time out was on September 17, 2009 and it preceded one of our monthly beverage nights. Murray proposed that we join him two hours beforehand at Mooney's Bay Beach in Ottawa where he was going to experiment with sunset action shots of kayaker John Ferguson. Bruce and I tagged along...
