A sunny, August day in central Alberta saw my wife, daughter (recently returned from Guatemala) and me driving back roads in central Alberta. Clouds were building through the afternoon – there would be a thunder shower this evening. My wife and daughter were content… Continue Reading “Summer Look-back”
I got out for an afternoon drive on a Saturday late in February. I gathered my cameras and set off for a look around within Alberta’s MacKenzie Municipal District. From High Level I traveled south. I would cross the Peace River ice bridge through… Continue Reading “Afternoon Drive – Late Winter”
The day held a meeting and rather than a team of colleagues going, I would attend the meeting alone. I took camera gear with me. I hoped that the day would yield photographs, that I would find myself within the situation of a photograph.… Continue Reading “Looking Up & Forward”

To my right was the patterning of snow covered… Continue Reading “Pillowed, Pocketed – Undulation”
Remnants of spring, summer and autumn, a cluster of HDR photos populate my photo folder. Farm buildings, fields ripe with grain ready for harvest, trees with autumn leaves desaturating from green toward bright yellows and reds, summer cloudwork and a final shot of Edmonton… Continue Reading “Remnant Population”
High dynamic range results in this fused image combining three images (-1 stop, average and +1 stop) creating an image representing early summer cloud work in north-central Alberta, a farm within kilometres of Greencourt, Alberta. Listening to – Allstar Weekend’s ‘Mr. Wonderful’ and ‘Not… Continue Reading “July Cloudwork – Alberta’s”
