New Hampshire Dawn
This photo is all about the will to get up early – a will I admit to having rarely! I am always happy once I am out there and see the opportunity that is before me, but it doesn’t make it any easier to get out of bed early the next time.

Buggy and Barrels
Taken from King’s Landing Historical Settlement, New Brunswick. While I did tour the restored homes, I found the most interesting parts to be the things I found around back or hidden in a corner.

Duck Brook, Acadia National Park
One of the bridges crosses Duck Brook where I tried my hardest to get a bird’s eye view of autumn leaves with the brook below. Unfortunately wind prevented me from getting a shot of sharp leaves with blurred water.

Baddeck, Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia has the tiniest little lighthouses! I’m not sure why, there is certainly some rugged shore here. Maybe it is just the age of them and that’s how they made them then. So cute!

Shakedown on the way to the Cabot Trail
Cape Breton Highlands National Park sits on the northern section of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and is home to one of the worlds most scenic drives, the Cabot Trail. Back in the 17th century this area was known as Ile Royal and was a colony of New France. Today it is part of Canada’s acadian region, which includes Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and part of Quebec.

Dolphin Watching in Discovery Passage, British Columbia
One day while exploring Discovery Passage, which is just north of Campbell River, I was joined by a pod of Pacific White Sided Dolphins. It was one of my best boating days ever!

Video: Dolphin Watching in Discovery Passage, British Columbia
I love exploring the local waters on my little boat, Snoopy, during my summers on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

There’s nothing better than combining my love for the ocean with my love for photography by going out on the water and looking for some wildlife to photograph.

Dramatic Contrast with Topaz Adjust
http://annemckinnell.com/2015/07/21/dramatic-contrast-with-topaz-adjust/

Topaz Adjust is one of my favourite plugins for enhancing contrast, detail and colour in my photos. It's the plugin that I always recommend to people who don't own any plugins yet because it has the most variation in styles and the most versatility.
 
See some examples of how I have used it to process my photos today on the blog.
 
There's also a 40% off coupon. More details in the post.

The Peddler’s Cart
In the 1800’s, peddlers would travel from farm to farm using person- or animal-drawn carts to supply isolated populations with basic goods such as pots and pans, tools, and cloth. For many of those farms, the closest community could be more than a day’s travel making the peddler a vital part of life.

Mother and Baby Giraffe in Tanzania
Baby animals are just so darn cute! I especially like how gangly and uncoordinated the baby giraffes are. It must be hard to balance on those long legs the first time you try to stand.

Inuksuk
Many people that do not live in the north have never seen an Inuksuk (pronounced Inukshuk). Perhaps their first exposure was the logo from the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. In Canada they are common navigational markers used by the Inuit and are even becomming commonplace among hikers.
