Have you ever had one of those photo locations where you repeatedly fail? Come along as I take you to one of mine...

So I've returned to Facebook after deleting EVERYTHING in mid-2016. I'm starting fresh with the goal of interacting with photographer friends that I have connected with on other social media platforms. We'll have to wait and see how fast it takes me to get fed up with it again. :P

If anyone is interested, this is where I spend my time now.

I figured I should get it out there before this place is gone.

Before G+ officially disappears I figured that I should share at least one of my YouTube videos here. If you like it, check out my channel youtube.com/c/mikegoodwin

So, I deleted ALL of my Facebook content about 18 months ago and just ignored it. I got a message from a "friend" today noting that my page is blank. My kids haven't even noticed.
I went a full year without posting anything here on G+. Same thing.
I guess it says something about the value of Social when no one notices that you're gone.

I live in a city that has chosen to surround a 19 meter tall, 18 meter wide waterfall with no trespass fencing and just today requested adding $140,000 to the budget for staffing who will be employed to chase people away. Personally I would much rather that money be spent on creating safe dedicated access to the location. If our city councillors oversaw this 44 meter tall, 100 meter wide waterfall, Dettifoss, the most powerful in Europe, they would just shit.

Kathy left her tripod back in the car and tried laying on her belly to brace for a longer exposure. Either that or she was afraid to get too close to the edge ;-)

The Last One
Shortly after I captured this image of Albion Falls in Hamilton, Canada, the city "leaders" decided to block off all access to the location and even went so far as to post bylaw enforcement officers to levy fines to people who tried to get close. The reason being, over recent years there have been a large number of people getting stranded and requiring expensive rope rescues. Additionally there have been a couple of people fatally injured after falling off the rocks.
Instead of creating safer access, the city has spent tens of thousands of dollars to deter people from visiting the area.
Once again people who prepare and carefully explore are penalized because of the careless actions others.

Flashback to a recent trip to the land of a thousand waterfalls.
One of the few days in our two week trip that we didn't get rained on.

It's been so cold in central Canada that I found it necessary to look back to warmer times just to keep myself going.
Captured in late June 2017 at Arrowhead Provincial Park in Huntsville, Ontario.
I waited for that cloud to catch fire but this is as good as it got.
