Winter landscapes in Ottawa | The Rideau Falls

A winter picture of the Rideau Falls from that vantage point of Green Island in Ottawa, Ontario. This “big picture” was taken under the presence of a two o’clock sun with my tilt-shift lens. The “frostbite weather” outside was hovering around minus 23 degrees Celsius, but “it felt like” minus 34 degrees Celsius with the wind blowing a brisk 17 km/h – ah, my warm love for extreme photography at its best!

This picture places an emphasis on the ice formations using a High Dynamic Range (HDR) effect, which was created using a bracketed series of pictures taken simultaneously at seven different exposure levels. Featured in the background are several Federal Government of Canada buildings, including the head offices for Canada’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the National Research Council of Canada.

A winter picture of the Rideau Falls from that vantage point of Green Island in Ottawa, Ontario. This moment marked my first picture of 2014, and the “frostbite weather” outside was hovering around minus 23 degrees Celsius, but “it felt like” minus 34 degrees Celsius with the wind blowing a brisk 17 km/h – ah, my warm love for extreme photography at its best!

This picture places an emphasis on the ice formations using a High Dynamic Range (HDR) effect, which was created using a bracketed series of pictures taken simultaneously at seven different exposure levels. The Rideau River flows into the Ottawa River, and early in the spring the ice build-up in this location is broken up by the Rideau River Blasting Crew using dynamite to get things flowing. I love the great outdoors!

The First Dance, Wedding Photography by Jeffrey Meyer

When the lights dim and the crowd moves in to surround the dance floor with loving support for the bride and groom I know it’s time to perform…when the music queues in and the couple embraces each other I know it’s time to move with them. This special moment was captured using an off camera flash technique that I use in my work to dial up the drama and capture the flowing tears of joy! What a moment – I love being a wedding photographer!
