Moon Stalker…

Okay. So first of all I have to apologize for all the moon photos. But I really couldn’t help myself. If you saw the super moon you know what I am talking about. It was just so incredibly beautiful. This is really a continuation of this post, where I went out and took photos in the moonlight while standing on the Michigan Avenue Bridge. The photos on this page were actually shot over the course of two night, all from the same vantage point of the Bird Island Pier but at different times and using different camera adjustments. The only three photos that were not facing east towards Buffalo are pretty obvious in this group…two below this text is an image of the point where Lake Erie spills into the very mouth of the Niagara river and begins it’s 25 mile trek to the Falls, and below that is the Peace Bridge, and the last photo is the sunset looking west at Canada. Sorry again if I’m boring you with so many photos…it’s so peaceful out there on the pier at night and I shot more than a hundred photos. These are just a few of my favorites.

The Peace Bridge in the Evening…

I shot these while out on a bike ride this evening. I have been in love with Buffalo’s waterfront this summer. It runs along two sides of the city and is so easily accessible by bike and is such a sanctuary. For those who are reading this from other parts of the country or world, the Peace bridge is the bridge that crosses the Niagara River from Buffalo, NY to Fort Erie, ON, connecting the United States and Canada. And this is right in my back yard. The top and bottom images were shot from the exact same location (from the lift bridge over the Black Rock Channel) but and hour apart (notice what the change of light does to the photo). The middle photo was taken when I rode about halfway out the bird Island Pier.

Playing with light (or the light is playing with me…or the incredible view from my handlebars)…

A couple weeks ago I rode out to the tip of Bird Island Pier in the Niagara River during the daytime and during an unexpected fog (click here to see those photos). And tonight–being determined to teach myself all the manual controls of my DSLR camera–I rode back out as the sun set to snap a few more photos. It was really interesting–and a bit challenging–to play with the camera as the light played with me as the sun set and the light changed every couple of minutes. Anyhow, here are a few of the results. Click any for somewhat larger views.
