Ice storms and shooting at 1 am … again

I must have a thing for night time photography when I don’t even think twice about heading out at the wee hours of the morning to take pictures.

I was getting ready for bed and looked out my bathroom window to the back yard and saw a light from the building behind me shining though my trees that were covered in ice from an winter ice storm.

Walking around was pretty hazardous since there was at least a centimeter tick layer of ice on the snow.

I’m glad I went out though because the pictures are STUNNING.

New Lenses for Nina Haigh Photoraphy

I got really lucky last week with a sale I saw on Kijiji of a photographer selling off his Nikon Film kit. The kit included 5 lenses and a teleconverter as well with a film camera body. I snatched it up quickly and I am so glad I did.

I got in one shot the lenses I needed to fill the large gaps in range that I had. I am all set now, especially since I also won an auction for a terrific Macro & Portrait lens.

I went for a walk around my house this weekend and tried out my new toys and I LOVE the results.
