I’m one of ten official CNE Bloggers this year, which means multiple trips to the CNE, and fun photographic possibilities.
Summer is fast coming to a close, so any excuse to be outside enjoying a balmy summer evening is wonderful. I’ve been timing my visits for the afternoon/evening for the best light for photography. In this blog post I’ll be sharing images from the various rides at the CNE.
This one is a fave. I wished I’d had a longer focal length, as I had to crop it a little, but just love this shot with the setting sun in the corner, and the people silhouetted as they await their turn on the Zip Line, a new ride this year at the CNE:
The Canadian flags against a sky of blue, the Ring of Fire ride:

I’m not sure of the name of this ride…swinging people against a sky of blue:

The Swing Tower ride:

Captured the same evening as the Zip Line ride image at the beginning of the blog post, this is the Blitzer Roller Coaster:
Another from the same night, I think this is the Ferris Wheel ride:
From the same evening, the setting sun:
