A Moody Change in Winter Weather

On Thursday evening, the temperature in High Level, Alberta dropped from -10C to -20C+. The moisture in the air transitioned to noticeable fog and then crystallized on physical objects producing a beautiful array of hoarfrost on trees, buildings and fences throughout the town. I… Continue Reading “A Moody Change in Winter Weather”

Images from the Journey Home

On Monday, January 2, 2012, my daughter and I drove from Edmonton and returned to High Level, concluding our Christmas visit with family. Opportunities for photographs were available throughout the drive; and, as with any travel that combines photography with moving towards a destination… Continue Reading “Images from the Journey Home”

Homestead – Donnelly, Alberta

Homestead Here is a black and white photograph of a homestead between Donnelly and Peace River, Alberta – an image receiving attention from bloggers; structure, design and texture attract. My intention for this photograph initially has been the exterior; but, with photographs of homes… Continue Reading “Homestead – Donnelly, Alberta”

Christmas Eve – A Kitchen in Readiness for Celebrating Christmas

Of the landscape travelled through, weather’s interaction at the Dunvegan Bridge over the Mighty Peace was shifting mist and cloud against a backdrop of conifers laced with… Continue Reading “Christmas Lights – Grande Prairie, Alberta”

Against a Reflective Surface – Christmas Lights

Leaving school, against the blackness of night, I encountered beautiful hoarfrost on an Aspen Willow tree – a reverse silhouette (white against black). I started my pickup truck and used the engine’s warm-up time to explore the silhouetted Willow. Again, the camera is atop… Continue Reading “Against a Reflective Surface – Christmas Lights”

Bokeh (Blurred lights) & Shallow Depth of Field

The shots taken last night explore bokeh; I’ve used a shallow depth of field for the subject and worked to blur the background light. Bokeh refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur, the out-of-focus areas of an image, or, the way the lens… Continue Reading “Bokeh (Blurred lights) & Shallow Depth of Field”

Refit & Refuel

I’m going to study this picture.  It does capture a sense of this being an outpost and a place to refit and refuel in night’s darkest hours. The intent, however, was to capture something iconic, a gas station lighting the night … it being… Continue Reading “Refit & Refuel”

Highway & Town

This evening I was working with a prime lens, a Canon 50mm f1.4 lens.  I’m getting a sense for the distance to subject it accommodates.  With my 60D’s sensor having a correction factor of 1.6, the 50mm lens behaves more like an 80mm lens;… Continue Reading “Highway & Town”
