Ice and Landscape photography at Ashbridge's Bay



Yesterday in -40 degree and 50km winds I spent a half hour at Ashbridge's Bay. Couldn't take it any longer, below are the images I came up with.

Because the last meet-up I published was filled within a couple of hours, I have decided to have it again. If any of you would like to have this meetup on the week-end, please e-mail me at

Freezing weather creates some fantastic opportunities for close-up studies, so don the thermals and let's explore the world of Ashbridge's Bay. This miracle of nature that coats everything in ice crystals transforms even the most mundane of subjects into something of real beauty. But what makes frosty afternoons so special is that very often the day dawns clear and sunny, so not only are there a plethora of subjects to train your lens on but the light is fantastic as well. What’s not to like?

What to bring:
The images that I captured were all done on a 28-300mm zoom. Some of the ice is close and some far so that is my suggestion.

A polarizing filter is also advisable but not necessary. My images were shot without one.
If icy, wear icers on your boots. Needless to say it could be cold at the lake so dress appropriately.

Who should attend:
As always I will be giving instructions so beginners to advanced photographers can attend. Even cell phone users will find beauty at the Bay.
