Predawn on the Port Union Shore of Lake Ontario, this first image (a three-frame, HDR merge) was shot when there was barely enough light to see by. The rocks were all but silhouettes at 6:15 am, and I could barely see my way on foot, as I juggled my tripod and my coffee on my way from the car to the shore. Exposure times ranged from 13 seconds to 2.5, ISO 2000, f/11.
Pre Apocalyptic Dawn
Off in the distance is the Pickering Nuclear Power plant. The Ontario government is quite proud of its green energy initiatives, which include the fact that no more coal is burned in Ontario to generate electricity. But, as I sit here (in hypocritical concern, typing on a laptop, directly to my Behance project enabled by an always-on Internet connection) I can't help but wonder if nuclear power is really the right choice, either. That waste product has to go somewhere and it is not fun stuff to deal with.
