New Year's Day (Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
I can remember the first time I made an ice image at Peggy's Cove, clear as day, though it was over 20 years ago. I've been going back every New Year I can - not to seek out the image I made then, but to celebrate the making of images, plain and simple.
Digital original, two frame exposure blend, two frame digital stitch
As soon as I saw this rock pool, I switched my lens to the 17mm tilt-shift, and inverted my tripod head so the camera could be as close to the rock as possibe; through using the tilt I was able to get infinite depth of field along the surface of the rock (one of the few times I have used the tilt on this lens). The final image was assembled from four frames - two exposures each, stitched together left to right.
