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!

feeling alone?

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.

peyto lake

Peyto Lake

travelling to photograph – that’s what i do and have always done.

exploring the canadian rockies was a dream-come-true! left home base in vancouver and headed to jasper, alberta via merritt, kamloops and valemount, bc. from there it was south to banff national park and the icefields parkway. then continued the circle back home via golden, revelstoke, vernon, kelowna, penticton and osoyoos, bc.

back in the rockies, this is the world-famous peyto lake photographed on a beautiful, cloud-filled summer morning. though this is rendered in black and white, the amazing turquoise water did not disappoint on this day (see colour photo below)!

Peyto Lake (Colour)

by the way, that colour happens when the suspended glacial sediment runoff in the water is reflected by the sun.

please note that most of my images are also available in either sepia or full colour… interested? just ask! thanks 😉

road to bow summit

Road To Bow Summit

travelling to photograph – that’s what i do and have always done.

exploring the canadian rockies was a dream-come-true! left home base in vancouver and headed to jasper, alberta via merritt, kamloops and valemount, bc. from there it was south to banff national park and the icefields parkway. then continued the circle back home via golden, revelstoke, vernon, kelowna, penticton and osoyoos, bc.

back in the rockies is the world famous peyto lake with its turquoise water in the summertime… this is the road that takes you to bow summit where you can take in the view of that magnificent lake.
