Canadian Firefighters Memorial, March 20, 2016

On the first day of spring, 2016, the temperature ranged from 0 to 2° C. I checked the maple trees. They haven't had any bark removed and the bark that was removed last year has healed over. Most of the snow has melted away.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, March 6, 2016

I wanted to come out on February 28. The weather wasn't cooperating. On this day it went overboard with the temperature at 3°C/37°F (outdoor barbecue weather here in Canada) and very sunny.

In fact, so sunny, it became a bit of a problem with my new lens. I got a wide angle lens that allows me to take more panoramic pictures. I'm in the learning stage with this, as you will see in the pictures that follow that I took with it.

You can see where I transitioned from one lens to the other. I did a clockwise circuit around the memorial site with my 18mm-55mm lens and then did another one with the 10mm-18mm lens.





















This is a photograph I always wanted to take. This shows the firefighter and
the wall in one picture. With the narrower lens at this angle I could either
photograph the firefighter or the wall but not both together. I will be
taking more pictures like this and with practice I may eventually get one
that tells the story I want to tell. For now this will do fine.
