Spring into Northumberland

April 6, 2018

Spring is a wonderful time to make photographs of beautiful Northumberland County. If you are visiting The Woodlawn Inn, be sure to pack your camera and take advantage of the changing weather and beautiful scenery. One of my favourite photo locations is Victoria beach located about 1000m from the inn on Lake Ontario. Park at the McGill St. parking lot at Victoria Park and explore the sandy beach, boardwalk and east pier and the iconic Cobourg Lighthouse. After some time shooting that location, you can follow up with some time at the natural West beach. Use the marina parking to be close to the West beach area. 

 

This abstract shot was made handheld in light rain. I used a one second shutter time and panned in sync with the subject. This person was walking along the boardwalk with an umbrella and effect of the long shutter makes the rain disappear and added a nice texture to the grass and budding willow tree.
