It’s already the 8th edition of the Changing Seasons project. This summer seems to be slipping by with outrageous speed. What’s its hurry?! There is so much more to do and enjoy before winter returns.
This month I wanted to do something a bit differently and headed down to Bluffers Park as the sun was setting. I hoped to start experimenting with fading light.
To my surprise, I discovered that fog had rolled in down at the waterfront. Only recently I had commented on a couple of blogs that we don’t often get fog. I guess I just don’t live in the right conditions to see it frequently … but travelling just a few kilometers to the water put me there.
Now I was not only challenged by fading light, but also foggy conditions.
I couldn’t help but contrast these photos to their counterparts in February. Now you know why I’m so reluctant to see summer speeding towards its conclusion.
Unfortunately I got only a couple of usable photos, so I had to make a second trip mid-afternoon Saturday hoping to catch a busy beach full of sun-worshippers. It wasn’t to be … a busy beach also meant an impossibly busy parking lot. I couldn’t get anywhere near the beach, with cars stacked up circling the parking lot like vultures.
I had to content myself with photos down at the marina.
It’s taken eight months to finally see multiple boats in the small inner harbour.
I expected to find the marina parking lot overflowing as well, but it wasn’t … although the number of trucks and trailers were not surprising.
Since I was disappointed at not being able to get to the beach, I made a small detour on the way home to check out the park at the Guildwood. I had been there for a walk recently with a friend and was impressed by how lush everything looked.
The park didn’t disappoint me.
I hope to see you back in September.
