Stratford, as I have mentioned many times is a wonderful place to live. It offers culture, entertainment and some beautiful scenery. Today, I decided I would get up a bit early and head out for a walk around town. The weather hasn’t been the greatest the last few days and as I ventured out the sky was mostly overcast with a slight and I do mean ever so slight split where the blue sky would peak through. Overall, lets just say things were naturally diffused. I had to end my trip earlier than I wanted as the rains returned…..
I started my trek down by the river (a.k.a Victoria Lake). I walked over to Tom Patterson Island and started my adventure there. Tied off in the lake, maybe 30 feet from shore were four Dragon Boats. Stratford is well-known for its Dragon Boats and hosts a great festival every fall. Racers from all over, come into the city for the festivities of the day.
I got a bit lucky today with how the current in the lake was positioning the moored boats and I ended up with today’s shot. I played around a bit with the processing in Lightroom and this was a result that I was rather pleased with. Let me know if you like it as well.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and if you are….thank a unionized worker!
