Flying Over 'The Ledge'

commonly referred to as ‘the ledge’ by locals, here is the saskatchewan legislative building in regina silhouetted from wescana lake at sunset with a flock of birds flying by.

the legislative building and its grounds were designated a national historic site of canada in 2005. it is also a provincial heritage property.” – wikipedia

tracks along the prairies

Tracks Along The Prairies

continuing on a cross-country adventure that would take me from vancouver to toronto, these are railroad tracks at gull lake, saskatchewan. the old wooden grain elevator at the front seemed to be out of use; the one further back along the tracks would have been it’s metallic replacement. wonder if it is still standing?

into the storm

Into The Storm

on the outskirts of drumheller, alberta are the famous rock formations known as hoodoos. unfortunately, i just could not get inspired to photograph them properly, so i gave up and instead trekked through the back roads… at one point i came to a crest and i could see a storm approaching. i got the gear out and set up right in the middle of the dirt road. just as i finished, it started raining… heavily! but, i did get this shot off!

clouds over the fort

Clouds Over The Fort

fort george, formerly called la vigie, sits high up in the hills overlooking port of spain and the gulf of paria in trinidad. it was one of a series of defense positions to protect the island established in 1804. never having been used for military purposes, it ceased being a military facility around 1846several cannons are from the original site and bear the british royalty coat of arms. the wooden structure you see photographed was a signal station established 1883 and was in use until 1964. today the site is a recreational area for residents and tourists alike, with picnic tables and landscaped grounds. the views afforded are spectacular and on the clearest of days, venezuela can be seen in the distance.

feeling alone?

b066-19rev

on a road trip starting in vancouver and ending in toronto through canada, this was photographed on the outskirts of drumheller, alberta. i was on a two-lane highway and there was no one in sight! i think one car passed us after i pulled off to the side of the road and set up my gear… yeah, the prairies are pretty big!

five in a row

b066-18rev

on a cross-canada journey from vancouver to toronto, i was approaching drumheller, alberta when i stumbled upon this location. there was not a soul on the property, so i just took a few steps on it, set my tripod down, composed and took this photograph. rarely will i ever photograph in the harsh midday sun – i wasn’t even sure this would work… thankfully it did! five in a row has become one of my most appreciated photographs. there has always been contention about the subject matter – many people have assumed that it was taken somewhere in southwestern ontario and thought the structures were tobacco sheds. to the best of my knowledge they are temporary storage sheds for grain awaiting rail transport.
