A sudden and unusual blast of cold weather on the Island has created all sorts of icy wonders for me to photograph! Today I took the dogs and wandered along the Englishman River in Parksville for almost 4 hours. I could have spent days there it seemed. Every little side channel of the river held new things to photograph. It was also my first chance to use my new Hoya 10 Stop ND Filter and try out Olympus's Live Preview long exposure feature.
