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.
