Emerging from the Abyss

Yes, I am still alive, yes, barely…I am just out of my hole briefly to let you know I am (sort of) still among you.

Most people hate November, cuz, well it sucks, but also, cuz all the colours have left, the trees look like crap and …it’s friggin’ cold. While I could hardly argue against this sort of feelings, I have to say that the more I look at it the more I see new opportunities during this dreaded month. Last week I probably saw the two best sunsets of the year, and missed both (if you don’t believe me, check it out for yourselves: #1 here; #2, here). But I also have tons of ideas on more intimate compositions that this month’s weather and look suits perfectly, now if I only could go out and do that…hopefully soon, may be this week-end if my buddy Justin is onboard (I know he always is).

In the meantime here is a shot I took last week-end. It is not a composite or a multiple exposure. This is the shot as I took it. I was waiting for sunset only to realise that the full moon was rising behind me. Nikon D700, 70-300VR at 200mm, ISO320, f/13 and 1/20s.

    Younes, I remember reading somewhere that Canadians love to talk about the weather more than any other nation. Or maybe I saw it on the Weather Network, which I’m constantly watching… LOL. What’s funny about this is that my most recent blog post was also about the weather in November http://garryblack.com/blog/?p=79

    Did you see the few snow flakes today?
