Spring in Zurich

When travelling through Europe in mid-March you have a 50 / 50 chance of getting either great weather or a cold rainy day. Our first day in Zurich we lucked out and spent a great day exploring exploring the city with the sun shining down on us.

Along the Limmat River

The Limmat river runs through the city of Zurich and commences right to Lake Zurich. Okay…had to let you know the details but the beauty of it is just walking along the river on a beautiful, sunny, pre-spring day.

Central Park’s Literary Walk

I hope all of my Canadian and American friends are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I thought it would be appropriate to share an image (or 3) from NYC today. The Mall in Central Park is a pedestrian walkway flanked by a quadruple row of American Elm trees. This is one of the last remaining stands of American elm in North America.

The southern end of the mall is known as Literary Walk where you’ll find the statues of Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Fitz-Greene Halleck.

Below you’ll see 3 versions of my Literary Walk image, Black and white; Color and a high key artistic version. Which do you prefer???

A Stroll Through Rothschild Blvd.

I hope that my American friends are enjoying the Memorial Day long weekend. I won’t take much of your time today, just wanted to share this image from a stroll down Rothschild Blvd in Tel Aviv, this past March.

I’m heading back to Israel in a couple of months and I’m looking forward to photographing this same spot but this time with the trees full of leaves.

After the Rain

There’s something about walking through Central Park after a rain storm that’s both calming and mysterious.

Sunday Afternoon on Lake Rosseau

I was in a canoe when I took this picture. Same day, same place to very different purposes. I, trying to find the perfect composition while trying to keep the canoe from bobbing up and down in the water and he finding the perfect spot to read while shutting out the rest of the world, including me.

I created a digital painting using LR, Photoshop and Topaz Impression. In case you weren’t aware Topaz Labs is running a promotion on Topaz DeNoise (it’s the noise removal software I use and love it) until June 30th. Topaz DeNoise is priced at $59.99 for the month of June, that’s a $20 savings. The coupon code is: JUNEDENOISE and you can click here to learn more.
