Natural landscapes: winter afternoon

WINTER SUN OVER LAKE ONTARIO, AJAX, ONTARIO, CANADA

Couldn’t have asked for more dramatic lighting at this location, east of Toronto (Canada’s largest city). I made several exposure to capture different wave motions; picked this one because it shows the best sunshine reflection in the sand. Nikon D50, tripod.

Natural landscapes: where the dinosaurs roamed

WINTER AT DINOSAUR PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA

It was definitely a lot warmer — and more tropical — when dinosaurs roamed this amazing place southeast of Calgary. I roamed this park without seeing even on other person. Amazing!
Dinosaur Provincial Park is one of the richest dinosaur fossil areas on the planet. Forty  species have been discovered at the park and more than 500 specimens have been removed and exhibited in museums around the globe. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

ICE AND WATER FLOW, BIG HILL SPRINGS PROVINCIAL PARK

This wonderful little park, near the western Canadian city of Cochrane, Alberta, protects a spring-fed stream as it flows down series of beautiful little waterfalls. This close-up captures the creeping onset of November ice. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

Urban landscapes: under the bridge

ST. PATRICK’S ISLAND BRIDGE, CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA

This newly opened bridge didn’t catch my eye until I found out it is illuminated underneath and along both sides of the entire pedestrian path. That grabbed my attention and I spent 45 minutes before dawn capturing various long-exposure views. The 30-second exposure helped smooth out the waters of the Bow River. Nikon D7100, tripod.

Natural landscapes: transition

FIR TREE AND ASPEN LEAF, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA

I was following a mountain stream when I found an opening in the mountain forest. It, and the small fir trees in it, were covered in snow and half-melted ice – typical conditions along the valley floors in the Canadian Rockies. Because a few bare aspen trees were nearby, I started wandering around looking for icy aspen leaves stuck in fir needles. This is one of the finds I photographed. Nikon D7100, 70-300 mm. lens, tripod.

Rural landscapes: on an autumn morning

OLD WAGON, JUST SOUTH OF CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA

I always enjoy driving along rural roads south of this western Canadian city; you never know what you’ll find. This wonderful old wagon is outside the entrance to a winding road leading to a wedding chapel. I spent a half-hour exploring all the photo possibilities while the leaves swirled around in the morning breeze. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.

Natural landscapes: flowing through autumn

PETAWAWA RIVER, PETAWAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA

Petawawa, northwest of Canada’s capital city (Ottawa), is best known as the home of a military base. But when I visit there, I go straight to the river. As you can see, it’s a beauty, flowing through the Canadian Shield amidst glorious forests. (You can see what the river looks like in mid-winter here: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-nX)
Notice the ugly graffiti on the rocks at the bottom? It wiped out many potential photos – heck, some of you might think it even ruins this photo.  :-(  Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.

Petawawa River autumn

Natural landscapes: the explosion of autumn

AUTUMN MAPLE LEAVES, DEEP RIVER, ONTARIO, CANADA

I tried a long exposure on this group of leaves, zooming my lens in and out to create the illusion of the leaves exploding in your face. Kinda cool, eh?  :-) Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.

Exploding autumn leaves

Natural landscapes: reflecting the autumn light

PART OF BUTTERMILK FALLS, HALIBURTON COUNTY, ONTARIO, CANADA

This isn’t one of those spectacular waterfalls; it’s a tumbling waterway, northeast of Toronto, that was once used to transport fallen logs. Now it’s a place for restful walks and enjoying the autumn colours reflected in the water. Nikon D50, tripod, polarizing filter.

Natural landscapes: the burst of sunlight

MALIGNE CANYON, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA

The first sunrise light to hit this glorious natural wonder in the Canadian Rocky Mountains created spectacular shadows. Including mine. At first I tried to find a way to keep me out of the scene, then realized my shadow actually added something to it. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
