Fall Stream

December no snow on the ground and no ice on the streams.  Looks like a green Christmas this year but it's time to enjoy our family and friends as we celebrate the Season.  Here is a recent photography of a small stream near North Gower.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a Canon 70-300 mm lens set at 70 mm.  The shutter speed was set at 1/100 second, the aperture was set at f16 and the ISO was set at 640.

Water Power

The water rushes swiftly over the waterfalls and thunders down on to the rocks below.  The water droplets sparkle brightly in the sunshine.  This photo was taken at Hog's Back falls in Ottawa, Canada.  I used my Canon rebel T2i camera with a 400 mm telephoto lens to capture this photo.  I set my shutter speed to 1/500 second to freeze the waters movement, my aperture at f8 and ISO 200 to get the correct exposure.

Welcome to JHC Photo Blog

Welcome to John Hugh Craig's (jhcphoto.ca) Blog. This is my first entry of what I hope will be many more to come.  As a first entry, I thought I would give you a bit of my background and an idea of what is to come in the future blogs.

I grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and have lived here all my life. I have travelled across Canada, coast to coast, visited many of the states in the U.S and have also visited some areas of Europe. My passion for photography started early in my life.  As a teen I use to develop my own photographs in my parents' basement.  

I attended schools locally in the Ottawa area and graduated with a bachelor of engineering from Carleton University.  I worked for several local high tech companies for many years.  

A few years ago I became very ill with liver disease, the cause of which they never determined as I did not drink to excess, smoke, use drugs nor was I overweight.  I was given one year to live.  I was fortunate to find a liver donor at the six month mark.  This individual saved my live by donating a part of their liver to me through a live liver transplant. 

Unable to continue my high stress job, as the doctors believe that stress was a major contributor to the liver failure, I decided to renew my passion for photography.  I have been spending time outdoors capturing wildlife in their natural environment and taking shots of different landscapes that capture my interest.
