Cable has been wound upon one of two huge snow-covered spools used to pull the Edmonton Queen ferry up and out from the Peace River at Tompkins’ Landing, Alberta. The first image, a macro shot explores light, colour and texture of cable on the spool. The other two images are of the Tompkin’s Landing ice bridge – one kilometre in length, crossing the Peace River – a solid structure between December and March, capable of holding a transport truck weighing 60 tons.

Quote to Inspire – “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” – Don McCullin

    The second shot is quite something, I love the way the dirty lines drag you out across the river.

      Hey there, Jim:

      For the driver, it’s a bit of Zen navigation … follow someone who looks like they no where they are going and most often you’ll get where you need to be (although, the dirty lines may be something more akin to Hansel and Gretel’s bread crumbs). Dirk Gentley’s Holistic Detective Agency culled the ‘Zen Navigation’ business.

      Have you been on an ice bridge is an interesting question?

      Just read your beginning word … seems to hold something interesting if the voice is that which precedes ‘Genesis’.

      I’ll be looking in to see how you are doing. Take care 😉
