Writing with Light

iPhone Friday – Niagara Wine Tour

Last weekend my husband and I took a drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake, which is about 1 1/2 hours from home. Niagara on the Lake is located on the south shore of Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Niagara River. NOTL is a lovely town which is home to award-winning restaurants, quaint B&Bs and from May to October The Shaw Festival, the second largest repertory theatre company in North America. (Does anyone know which is the largest repertory theatre company in North America? Want a hint?  It’s also in Ontario 🙂 )

I digress…sorry…back to our regularly scheduled program.

The plan was to visit some wineries, do some wine tasting and replenish some of the bottles we’d worked through over the last little while. While I always have my DSLR with me (sill need to process those images) here are a few iPhone images from the day.

    Killer shots Edith. You have captured two of my favorite things: wine and Niagara-on-the-Lake. I really love that town. The NY side of the falls should take a lesson from it. Have a great weekend.

  10. Nice, great minds think alike. We also spent last weekend at a few local wineries. I found my big Dslr to be too obtrusive so I settled for a few Droid pics on Instagram.

    • Thank Gracie. Yes all of these shots were taken and edited on my iPhone 4S. I really should write down which apps I use as I try different looks. The Grapes image was first edited in snapseed (my go to app) then PhotoToaster and I think I used Grungetastic to finish it off.
