Many of the hydroplanes who competed in the 2010 Syracuse Hydrofest a couple of weeks ago crossed the border from Canada by way of Niagara Falls, 1000 Islands Bridge and Ogdensburg, New York. Considering the distance and economy, I was surprised at all the license plates from Ontario and Quebec.

I got a deja vue feeling as instructions to the drivers was given in both French and English remembering all the Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts from the old Montreal Forum I watched growing up. Where my favorite NHL hockey team, the Montreal Canadiens, played to many Stanley Cup championships during the 1960s and 70s. There, the Forum's public announcer announced everything in French first before repeating it in English.

As today is Canada Day for our neighbor to the North, I salute them and am proud to have many Canadian friends.

Manchester Monarchs posing with the Calder Cup, the American Hockey League's championship trophy, after defeating the Utica Comets in the Best of 7 series, 4 games to 1 at the Utica Memorial Auditorium in Utica, New York on Saturday, June 13, 2015.

I hit the ice for this photo to try and get a unique view of the team photo. That was hard to do with ten other credentialed photographers and all the phone photographers I had to slide between to get this.

More photos from the game here: View 360: Calder Cup 2015

Cortland Crush players pose on the baseball turf field of Onondaga Community College near Syracuse, New York on Wednesday June 10, 2015.

Used Macphun's Intensify Pro to give this a soft, grungy feel with lots of detail. Finished in Apple's Aperture 3.6 which is still my workhorse even if Apple put it out to pasture.

Cortland Crush baseball team broadcast and game ops staff working during the game against the Syracuse Junior Chiefs on Greg's Field at Beaudry Park in Cortland, New York on Sunday June 7, 2015. The Crush are a member of the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL) whose teams are made up of college players. NYCBL is sponsored, in part, by Major League Baseball (MLB) and players are scouted and drafted by MLB teams.

To be able to cover the range of light from bright summer sunlight to deep shadows under the broadcast enclosure, I used a set of five photos from -2EV to +2EV. I then merged them into Photomatix Pro to create a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image.

You will be seeing more from the Crush as I have been contracted by the team to cover a few of their games.
