This post is kind of a part two, to my previous one. Last week I walked around part of the Neebing River, but more towards Friendship Gardens. This time around, I headed on over to the trail in East End that follows the river out to Lake Superior. I'm not exactly sure why, but one of my favourite areas in town to take photos is East End. I think it's because it's a good mix of nature and landscape and some great urban scenes. Plus, each time I'm there, I literally see no more then 5 people out and about. It's just so quiet and peaceful, if that makes sense.
So this walk was a mix of some great landscape photos, which I am trying to take more and more of, and of course my usual random photos of anything else that catches my eye. After walking part of the trail, I spent most of my time in the various baseball parks in the area, as well as one of the playgrounds. I'm trying more and more to take a step back and get photos that take in the whole scene, but I also made sure, as I always do, to get in nice and close and play with depth of field, focusing on the details.
It was a nice overcast day so I couldn't have asked for better weather. It gave all the images a nice even tone and I didn't have to really worry about shadows. Although, there are plenty of times when I set out to find shadows and see what I can do with them. For this walk, I used my Nikon d750 and the 50mm 1.8. I absolutely love the bokeh and depth of field it produces. Of course, I had to throw in a couple photos of the kitties from when I got home. You can never have too many cat photos after all. Thanks for viewing!
