This years’ mother’s day was very different for me and my photography, was there to help me cope with events and also to put in pictures, what this special day means all the mothers of the world. Theses are the photographs taken over the weekend that I envision as mother’s day.
A mother enjoying a walk, on a beautiful spring weekend day and spending some quality time with her child .
A mom watching her child picking the finest wild flowers that will complete the best bouquet she ever gave had.
A mother seeing her child’s joy and love in their eyes as she accepts their mother’s day gift.
A mom relaxing and watching her loved ones cook her up a nice meal.
To all you mothers, those are the moments for you to cherish.
Happy mother’s day!

It was a chilling -23 C Saturday night but it did not stop the flock of spectators that came out to brave the cold and view the Rogers 23rd International Ice-Carving Competition at Confederation Park in Ottawa. Winterlude gathers professional carvers from around the world that come and put their talent to the test.
Here is some of the talent that I photographed.
I was a little unprepared for this winter photo shoot. The cold played a big factor to the enjoyment of the event and I was a little under dressed to be able to take the time needed for pictures I wanted to capture. Lesson learned, next year I will be better dressed and better prepared to take the shots I really want.
Enjoy the few pictures I did get.
It’s my favorite time of the year, not too warm, not too cold and the Fall colours are out. This year is even more fun because I get to capture the moments with my DSLR.
I had the chance to capture a few pictures last weekend that show the start of the season and the trees starting their multicolour changes. Here is a few landscape images taken in Cantley QC.
Last chance for a swim before the waters get too cold. This image was taken during a short nature hike in the Mont-Cascades village.
As you go down into the valley of Mont-Cascades before hitting the South face ski slopes this farm land rests in a picturesque setting.
The curved line of dried cut grass caught my attention creating a pleasant composition for this image drawing the eye to focus towards the forest of changing colours.
I’ll be adding a few more pictures to my fall 2009 collection as the days get colder and the colour changes unfold.
