Taken from the boardwalk passing through the “Mer Bleue” Conservation area near Ottawa, Canada. It is one of many nationally protected peat bog areas and is the habitat for many water fowl , beavers, muskrat and a plethora of plant species usually found in northern tundra.

“Mer Bleue” ( french for “blue sea” or lake ) is so-called because of the blue mistiness that envelopes it at dawn and dusk.

This panorama was taken in Infrared (IR) using a Canon G2 on a tripod, with exposure set at ISO 100, 4 sec @ f7.1 and using 3 frames at 35mm focal length.

Taken on a September afternoon on a particularly clear day.

Max is a semi-retired 60+ boomer science guy, currently living in Ottawa, Canada’s capital. Growing up with photography and art in his family, he was self-taught ever since he developed his own films at the age of 13. “I do it for the sheer joy of creating an image regardless of whether it pleases, stuns or provokes”, he says. He likes to experiment and is currently exploring pinhole, Infra-red, panoramic, and high dynamic range photography.
