Cottage Time

Lazy days of August in this part of the World means Cottage Time. Just one hour from Ottawa on paved highways until the last mile.

View of the cottage from the dock. (below)

Various views.

Beside the dock, at least a dozen (8 visible in photo) Smallmouth Bass.

More nature.

It wouldn’t be a week at a cottage if there wasn’t some “liquid sunshine” in seven days this was a late evening rain, rained off and on through the night and cleared up the next morning.

It wouldn’t be a week at a cottage if there wasn’t some “liquid sunshine” in seven days this was a late evening rain, rained off and on through the night and cleared up the next morning. The sound of the rain dancing across the tin roof, has a calming effect.

The morning mist at 6:00 AM, a paddle boat heads into the mist looking for Bass.

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
