Now this is fun! Take a camera and tripod, set it up in water at twilight, shine a flashlight and take about twenty 30-second exposures, mix and match them in Photoshop Elements, et voila! Magic rocks! Under just about any other conditions, the shoreline of Oshawa and Whitby is not so appealing, except at Lakeview Park and Whitby Harbour, and on the high bluffs. In photography, lighting is everything.

Great Stuff! - Hmm you didn't mention rubberboots in your equipment!

Steven H. O. Jones on December 14, 2010

Auggie: Quite right - boots were required! In fact, the rocks were slippery, and it's a wonder I didn't fall flat on my face with all the running I was doing to go ashore with the flashlight. Would've made it even more fun! Indy
