The one thing I miss about living in Ontario are the deciduous trees (trees that turn colour such as oak, maple and elm trees). They are absolutely stunning in the fall! This past weekend I spent the weekend in Ontario with my family for Canadian Thanksgiving and convinced them to go on a bit of a photo walk. Full photoset can be found here.
Looking for some inspiration, I stumbled on the National Geographic "Photo of the Day" website. It really is everything you would expect from them - - absolutely awesome!!!
This is from today's post:

Photograph by Ragnheidur Arngrímsdóttir
“Flying with my father over Bárðarbunga to experience this eruption from inside our Earth was amazing,” writes photographer Ragnheidur Arngrímsdóttir, who captured this picture near Iceland’s Holuhraun lava field. “The power, heat, and beauty were overwhelming. On many occasions you feel how small you are [beside] nature. This was one of those times for me.”
This photo was submitted to the 2014 National Geographic Photo Contest.
I decided to bring my camera along because of the stunning photography opportunities ... however - when I got home everything was super overexposed!!! My white balance was off and the colours were also blending into each other. With a little help from Adobe Lightroom 4 I was able to salvage the photoset but definitely learned my lesson to take a little more time and play with all of the settings before just snapping a few shots and keep hiking!
