Winter isn’t normally a time when one visits the Badlands near Cheltenham, ON. In the spring/summer/autumn they are covered with a swarm of GTA weekend tourists making it difficult to get any shot without people. I grew up in the area and much of my family still lives near there so I get to see the bizarre, red elephant backs throughout the year. Last weekend, on the way to visiting family, I was treated to a beautiful dusting of snow on the north side of the ridges. Better still, there was not a soul to be seen!
Here are some shots with the D300s and Tokina 11-16/2.8 (first two), the Sigma 50/1.4 (third) and Tokina 50-135/2.8 (fourth). I love how out of place these images are with southern Ontario and how only the occasional footprint gives them a sense of scale.
