Carp Farmer’s Market 2012

Carp Farmer’s Market 2012

We took a quick trip out to the Carp Farmer’s Market to take a look at what was for offer this year. My wife purchased a bit of farm produce and I chatted with a few photographers and snapped the shutter a few times.

The 149th Annual Carp Fair opens Sept 21st-23rd this year.  For more information about that country fair, visit their website at: Carp Fair 2012

CFUW-Kanata – One Room School House Tour

Sunday May 29th, 2011

What a day to schedule a tour of the one-room schoolhouses in the Ottawa area!

At least that is likely what all of the organizers and participants were thinking when they looked out their windows on Sunday morning. The temperature was fine but it had rained overnight and there was still a light rain falling at 10AM.

A drive through the countryside

A drive through the countryside

It was cold but the sun was shining so I took a bit  of a break and drove through the countryside looking for something a bit different to photograph.

At one point a bridge over a rushing river near Fitzroy Harbour gave me a chance to get some shots of ice and water. I had to have the tripod feet in the river to take the shot. Later realized that the rushing water was shaking the tripod and had to modify that approach.

A short distance away a wonderful iron bridge crossed the same river. Getting to the brdge wasn’t too bad since I had the strong wind at my back as I walked along the railway tracks. Walking back to the car was a different story as at -20C the wind in my face had a real bite to it!
