Georgian Bay Trip Gallery

Georgian Bay

I’ve added a Georgian Bay Trip Gallery from my kayak trip there. I went on the trip last month, and the photos in the gallery give a flavor of what it was like to paddle there.

    This image you posted here is probably my favorite in the gallery that you put up. The puddle in the foreground works really well as a visual entry point, and the ultra-wide feel gives the image a powerful sensation of space. The horizon does feel a bit tilted in the clockwise direction, but it’s difficult to really tell for certain at this size. Did you add the vignetting yourself? Or was that just a result of your lens and any filters that you may have used? Cool stuff!

    I believe that the camera was completely level when I shot this, but I can’t remember. I usually use a bubble level when shooting over water. I think if I were to mat and frame this, I’d give it a bit of counter clock-wise rotation.

    The vignetting was added during developing of the RAW file in Photoshop. I felt that the gray/blue needed a bit of something to force the viewers eyes towards the center. It’s a bit stronger image now.

    Georgian Bay is hard to capture and it was tough to get anything that I would consider A+. Especially so, because we were tented for two days and paddling amount non-stop on the others. This gallery, as do others on this site, functions more as a trip log for myself and my friend, Steve, so we can show what the place looks like.

    On the last day of the trip, I was starting to develop a sense of place there, but nothing like the connection I feel in the Black Hills, NE Iowa, or Northern MN. I need a few more trips there to help uncover and distill the spirit of the land.

    Thanks for the nice comments!
