Rural landscapes: evening glory

AUTUMN AT GLENBOW RANCH PROVINCIAL PARK, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA, CANADA

In the western Canadian province of Alberta, aspens turn to astonishing shades of yellow and orange in the fall. I loved this hillside and the fence made for a perfect foreground. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

Natural landscapes: A touch of humanity

ROCK CAIRN, ABRAHAM LAKE, ALBERTA, CANADA

This lake, in the glorious Canadian Rocky Mountains, is  probably best known for the millions of ice bubbles that form on its icy surface every winter (you can see an example here: http://wp.me/p2ccTX-gT). I wanted to see the lake in summer, so my wife and I camped nearby and while she slept, I was up early for my usual sunrise photo trip. Found this cairn on the shoreline and got down low to find a pleasing composition. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

Natural landscapes: watching in wonder

SUNWAPTA FALLS, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA

This is definitely one of the most photogenic waterfalls in the glorious Canadian Rocky Mountains. I had the ideal viewpoint, from a pedestrian bridge, but wanted a person to ‘complete’ the photo. My wife, Lori, stepped in and stood still for a loooong exposure. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter

DUCHESNAY CREEK, NORTH BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA

In 2006, my wife and I were visiting our daughter, who was attending Nipissing University in North Bay. She took us to see Duchesnay Falls, a wonderful natural spot. Ironically, the best picture from that trip didn’t include the falls, but showed the creek rounding a corner with gorgeous autumn colours. Nikon D50, tripod, polarizing filter.

FISHING IN ARROWHEAD LAKE, NEAR HUNTSVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA

Well, he wasn’t alone, since I walked quietly onto this 2005 scene and made the photograph. It was a stunning morning in Arrowhead Provincial Park. Nikon D50, tripod.

LIBRARY SQUARE, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA

This nine-story structure is the largest construction project ever undertaken by the city of Vancouver (on Canada’s west coast). The $107 million project, designed by Moshe Safdie and DA Architects, opened in 1995.
It was nice to be in the main atrium before the library opened. Had the place pretty much to myself, so I could set up the tripod and make long exposures with nothing and no one to get in the way. Nikon D7100, polarizing filter.

Rural landscapes: in the sea of yellow

FARM BUILDINGS AND CANOLA FIELD, NEAR DRUMHELLER, ALBERTA, CANADA

July is canola time in the southern half of the western Canadian province of Alberta and I always go a bit crazy trying to capture all the amazing rural scenes made that much better by a carpet of glorious yellow. I tried this scene horizontally as well, but I think I prefer the vertical format. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

Urban landscapes: the lights of blue hour

HIGHWAY 401 AT DON MILLS ROAD, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA

The Don Mills Road overpass is a well-known spot to make long-exposure photos of one of the busiest highways in Canada. I ventured here about 45 minutes before sunrise to try my luck with a 30-second exposure. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.

Highway 401

Rural landscapes: the welcoming entrance

ROAD TO THE RANCH, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA, CANADA

These wagon wheel installations flanked the entry to a picturesque farming operation in the Rocky Mountain foothills. I intentionally went for a shallow depth of field so the background would complement, rather than compete with the installation. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, hard-edge graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.

Natural landscapes: the glory of a Jasper sunrise

MT. EDITH CAVELL, JASPER NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA

A classic view of one of the most photographed mountains in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Such an amazing morning….I could only pray thanks to God for this part of His cathedral. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter, hard-edge graduated density (darkening) filter on the top half.
