Cottager Cover!

One of the things I love about taking photos is capturing something not many people get to see. The milky way shot I got last summer is one of my favourites of 2017. I submitted it to a few photo contests and was pleased to have it chosen ‘winner’ by The Cottager magazine.

The magazine editor (and contest judge) writes. “This photo might be chosen for best title as well, if that were part of the contest” Glad he liked it.

Here’s the description that accompanied the photo submission:
On Agimak Lake in Ignace we seldom have the combination of conditions required for an exceptional night sky shot: calm, clear and dark (no moon). The evening leading up to this shot presented all three. My neighbour granted permission to use her dock and chairs for a set up. My yard has a security light that would ‘pollute’ the scene. Just around midnight with only my mobile phone flashlight for light, I set up the scene and my camera. Using a Canon 7D mounted on a tripod with a 11-18mm lens open as wide as possible, I took a number of 30 second shots. Each time the shutter was open, I turned my cell phone flashlight on and quickly ‘painted’ the chairs with light. This one was my favourite.

This image is available for purchase on canvas or fine art paper for framing. I’d be happy to discuss options with anyone interested. Check out the Prints page for pricing and other images available.
