Good Day to all,

For those who are inquiring how am I doing ? I am doing just fine. Over the past weeks, many things happened. the saddest one, for a photographer , is to have to send his camera to the repairshop. I might get it back in a few more weeks only. Hopefully before our next vacation. We will be flying South in April. destination , Riviera Maya. Martine and me are certainly very excited since we skipped our 2007 escapade.

A lot of work, and honestly a lack of motivation in shooting, despite I still have my good old Powershot Pro. I barely took any shots for the last three months. I also had very limited time on line to post critiques and comments. I will be back, promessed. Hopefully spring will be a good source of motivation.

This image was taken earlier this week, when this ship sailed at sunrise from Trois-Rivieres on her way to Quebec City. If you look at the Googlemap, the ship was docked about 300 m downstream from the position shown ( NE ).

Camera handheld , Uncropped image. Slight color enhancement only.

Wellllll wonderful to see you back Robert. You are sorely missed and this image is a good example of why your missed. Beautiful lighting. Any camera is your hands will turnout a quality shot. Looks like ice is still on the river.
Hope to "see" you again soon.

Hello, hello! Good to see you here Robert.
And my Canon 30D is off to the Canon hospital tomorrow - I have dusted off my 300D but not happy with the photos I take on it. It is a sad time!! I hope your camera comes back soon - and mine too.
What a pretty sky - the pink seems to show up on the hull. It's like a 4-tone image Pink, blue, black and yellow lights
Well done

Hi Robert,

Wonderful capture of a tugboat hard at work. Very sharp, and I like the way the boat's lights stand out.


Hi Robert,

Glad to hear you are doing well- just working a lot. :-)

It's OK to take some time off-even from TrekLens.

Stay warm.


Hi Robert,
nice to meet you again here, I missed you ...
I always love to look at shots like that, ships, the sea, it's beautiful. I have to go hundreds of kilometers to be at the Northsea or the Adria. So I'm not used to see ships and I'm happy to see yours here.
Thanks and greetings

Nice to see you back now Robert. A beautiful return to TL too. This shot combines beautiful light, strong colours, and strong geometry to present a captivating subject. Beautifully presented, a poster-quality work indeed.

Hello Robert,
And you are back with a strong action picture!
Beautiful colours too.
That tug boot has a lot of work with that big ship!

Hi Robert,
Oh so sorry to hear your camera is being fixed.. good luck on getting it back before you go!

I love the reflections on the ice.. Looks very cold.. I think it is too early for them to start sailing! :)

Bonjour Robert,

You've got a beautifull light here. Image is sharp, exposure is exact rendering perfectly the mood of that time of the day. You got splendid shades (nuaces)in the sky. To my taste, this one should have been the one for the Friday theme even if the other is also very good. Great shot and TFS.


Salam Robertic

Great landscape with fantastic light spectrum
Very good details, I like the way you frame this shot, BRAVO

hi Robert

I think this is a wonderful view, and you have brought the morning tone very well here with the light+shadow effect. A great composition of the boats, the sky and the reflection. I think this will make a good print!

Excellent work, even when you camera is in repair shop.

tfs, bill

Hey there Robert,
Good to see you "up and running" again!
I hope you and Martine are doing ok...

I really like this image. Good details, even in the darkest parts and I think it's really a lovely view over all.
Nice soft light and colors.

hello Robert,
this is wonderfully atmospheric. It amkes me think of adventures, travel and foreign places.I like the colours and light but I especially like the reflected lights in the water.
Pleased to know that you are coming out of the photographic doldrums. I have been there too and await spring to change my mood.
best regards,

This is beautiful Robert! The soft morning light is always so nice! I love that pink sky! Very nice sharpness in low light! So good to see you back posting again!

Hi Robert,
I must say this again - you clearly demonstrate that the artist/photographer is much more important than the equipment :-))
Great work, again.
I'm very impressed.

Best regards, Daniel

Quelles couleurs et quelle ambiance superbes! bravo.
