What’s not to love about where I live?! ❤ Ontario Here’s a tiny peek of a corner of our beautiful province.
Every season along the Niagara Parkway is enchanting.

You can spend years enjoying nature. The flowers, leaves and all the delicious fruits!

Some of the best places to immerse yourself in nature are our Provincial Parks. My favourite is Rock Point, Provincial Park.

Canada’s largest lights festival is celebrating its 35th anniversary in Niagara Falls this year – and organizers say it’ll be their “brightest season yet.”
More than a million people from around the world come each year to see more than two million lights displayed throughout Niagara Falls during the city’s annual Winter Festival of Lights.

The ice grows over time as layers of mist freezes turning Niagara Falls Ontario into a winter wonderland.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

I’m feeling very small today so this photo seems to fit my perspective well.

Photography, and any visual art, is all about perspective. Where and how you place other objects in the frame can completely change how another part of the picture looks. In drawing, placing an object farther down on the page and making it larger gives the appearance that it’s close; conversely, a smaller object towards the top of the frame seems farther away.
For this week’s challenge, make use of sizing, placement, and scale in your photos. Perhaps you live in a place with mountains, and want to highlight the size of the homes in relation to the dramatic landscape. Or, conversely, if you live in a city, how do the buildings change when you place a smaller object, like a cup or a toy, in the front of your frame? Can you make them appear smaller or, conversely, can you make them look like the biggest skyscrapers in the world?
Have some fun with perspective and show just how big, or little, the world can seem.
