One more roadside composition, at speed.
I love taking pictures along the road at a shutter speed fast enough to stop the motion of the trees in the distance but not the closer grasses in the foreground – it creates a kind of painterly effect.
These shots are both just across a narrow path from the beach.
(These pictures were shot a couple of weeks ago – everything’s shut now and we’re complying with attempts to halt the spread of Covid-19 by not going out except for necessities).
Continuing along Ferry Street we came to the Drummond Hill Cemetery and the Lundy’s Lane Battlefield Park, both rather beautiful and showing off much of what we’d just learned in the History Museum. Across the street from the Cemetery, on the outskirts of the Niagara Falls Christian Ministries and in the shadow of the Advance Inn, were these lonely straggler graves, their inscriptions wiped away by history.
More from my Meadowlands project (you can read about it here or go back a few posts to read the latest update). According to a placard, this is Common Reed Grass or Phragmities australis. Click any image to see them all enlarged.
