Eramosa Swimming Hole

Today, my son Daniel and I headed for a dip at a great swimming hole on the Eramosa River.

 We took along my underwater camera and together we took a few shots of our swimming adventure.

Howitt Park Workshops

photo by Abby

Focus on Nature held a series of nature photography workshops for photographers of all ages in July.

Each day began with an introductory talk I gave on camera controls,  photo techniques, and image composition.

This was followed by a photo shoot in Howitt Park, an editing session using Picasa, and finally a slide show of everyone's best images.
