These photos were taken on one of the first warm days at the beginning of the month, although the scenery looked pretty similar yesterday!  For about an hour, it was raining heavily, and a thick fog formed over the river.  I grabbed an umbrella and set out for a walk, shooting minimalistic landscapes of the shoreline.

I figure this would also be a good time for a quick update on my plans for the spring.  For those who haven't heard, I have been hired as the Bander-In-Charge for the spring season at Innis Point Bird Observatory in Ottawa.  Naturally, this means I will be moving back closer to Ottawa, and I have a few photography projects that I'm going to attempt to work on while I'm in Ottawa.  The only project that I'll mention for now is documenting the bird banding process, which I hope to do mainly on film.  If I like the resulting images from the first 1 & 1/2 months, I'll consider extending the project into a long-term series, with the possibility of working at a number of other observatories around Ontario.

In other news, I received an exciting new camera today!  I will be writing a post about it over the next week or two, but all I'll say for now is that it's a Canadian-made camera...
