New Camera, Fog and Swinnerton

I sometimes get myself into some dangerous situations taking photos: standing roadside at night, on a hill in a lightning storm, in a mosh pit in front of a band. I don’t take unnecessary risks, but they’re not places for the faint of heart.

On this particular adventure, however, I actually felt uneasy. I didn’t know when the dam might open, or one of the huge ice skirts might come crashing down or a tree collapse under the weight (one had before I arrived). The footing was slippery shale and the icy water was moving very fast.

Peterborough Sci Fi

Image of Peterborough at night in fog and lightning

This is from the tail end of an attempt to catch some lightning. I got a couple of strikes, but nothing spectacular. Driving back into town I could see mist rising from the Otonabee and fog rolling across town so I sped to the top of Armour Hill. This is what I saw. I thought it looked like an overdone sci-fi set.
