Cold morning on the Harbor

Jan 7, 2014, A very cold morning in the harbour, mist is created from warmer water in the bay lifting and meeting the cold air. A mystical scene is formed.This photo was shot with a 300mm lens from near the Burlington Golf and Country Club . Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator

Feb 19,2014 Donna Biggar with “Little Jeanie” in the kitchen of her Fisherville farm house. The lamb is the smaller of twins born on in the cold evening hours of Feb 10th. The lamb was small and initially not feeding well so Biggar brought her into the house to bottle feed her and watch her through that first night. That was nine days ago. Little Jeanie now wears a diaper, follows Biggar everywhere. Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator

Jan 3, 2014, Motor Cross bikers perform a train in the air as they do stunts while jumping off of ramps during Nirtro Circus at Copps Coliseum Friday night. This image was shot with a 70-200mm lens at a very high ISO due to very low light-during a practise for the Nitro Circus. As motocross riders jump in quick succession I was able to capture 4 in the air in varying positions at one time. Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator

, May 13,2014 An osprey flies away with it’s lunch pulled from the Grindstone Creek at Valley Inn Tuesday afternoon. Heavy rainfall over night have raised the water levels significantly and turned water in the bay and surrounding waters muddy brown. The forecast calls for even more rain tonight.

Waterdown vs Westmount girls Rugby1878

May 16,2014, Dharma Evans of Westmount and CJ Trudell Waterdown collide face to face during peak high school senior girls rugby action. This image was shot with a 400mm lens.

July 21,2014, One of the very few things that 21 year old William Swayze has that belonged to his mother, Rhonda Borelli , is an old locket with a baby photo of William and another of William’s father in it. William’s father died before he was born and Borelli was murder along with her father Bill Staples 17 years ago. His uncle Mark Staples is on trial for the murders in September. The locket was found in a jewellery box of Borelli’s that was given to the young boy after his mothers death. Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator

Oct. 2014- McNabb and Westdale meet in HWDSB senior football semi-finals. Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator


Nov.12,2014- Sue Upton is a six-year transplant in Hamilton. She moved from Toronto cuz Toront was driving her crazy. She moved into an amazing place on Ferguson North, formerly the home of famous rap artist. Sue still spends a lot of time in Toronto, in Stratford, New York City and even Hollywood. She is one of the country’s premier make-up and hair artists, having worked with and on the likes of Martin Short, Jim Carrey and Tom Hanks. She also does body painting and all kinds of fascinating things. On Friday she’s showing her work at the newly opened Gasworks – her wild surrealism-tinged paintings as well as portraits she’s painted with her opposite hand, her left. She’s a compelling addition to the local gallery of characters. Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator


Oct 28,2014- Cpl Nathan Cirillo’s mother Kathy is supported as she breaks down during the procession from BayFront Park to Christ Church Cathedral upon seeing the tribute to Nathan on the pixel board at First Ontario Center. Kathy is supported by Nathan’s best friend Cpl. Branden Stevenson ,left, who was standing on guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa with him when he was shot by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. This image was shot with an 70-200mm lens. It was shot as the procession turned the corner onto a street lined 3 and 4 deep with people who come out to pay their respect and gratitude to the Cirillo family for Nathan’s sacrifice. I like the photo because is shows the effect of the tragedy on the faces of those closest to Cpl Cirillo- anger and overwhelming grief. Cathie Coward/ Hamilton Spectator

Oct 28,2014 5 year old Marcus Cirillo is watched over by members of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders as he walks behind his father, Cpl Nathan Cirillo’s, casket on route to his funeral. This image was shot with a 70-200mm lens. I like this photo for the story it appears to tell – that the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders’ have his back and will look out for him.
