Glenora Distillery Barrels

Here are some oak barrels at the Glenora Distillery outside Inverness, Nova Scotia.  Glenora claims to be the first single malt whisky distillery in North America.  Not being a big scotch fan, I would not know about such things.  I am a big fan of bourbon, and the barrels Glenora uses to age their scotch come from Kentucky and once contained my beloved bourbon.

From front to back, this was a bit of a deep image.  Instead of using a small aperture to increase depth of field, I used a larger aperture for a smaller depth of field.  I took three images and focus stacked them in Photoshop to get a sharp image front to back.  Click this link for a focus stack tutorial from B&H Photo (this tutorial is for macro photography but the theory is the same used for the above image).

Another lobster pot image taken on the pier at Port Morien, Nova Scotia.  Since the pots were pretty weather beaten, I went ahead and converted the pots to black and white and left color in the buoys and lines.  A little different look that gives the image sort of a split personality.

Besides a blacksmith shop, the other subjects I just cannot walk by without setting up my camera are … lobster pots.  Can’t walk past them without capturing images.  A stack of lobster pots make for the classic repeating pattern composition.

I took this image on the pier at Port Morien, Nova Scotia.  When we drove through the town almost every house had a display set up in their front yard with people dummies.  We had no idea what was going on until a week or two later when we met someone from Port Morien in a B&B in Wolfville.  They said the decorations were part of the Port Morien people celebration, Morien Memories.  This is a come home weekend celebration where former residents come back to visit.  Sort of like a high school reunion for the entire town.
