Mt. Shuksan Reflections

not too far south of the canadian border in north-western washington state is the mt. baker-snoqualmie national forest. state route 542 winds through it and gives access to picture lake. this is the oft-photographed mt. shuksan peak reflected on it.

cabin on the pond

Cabin On The Pond

exploring the area just north of yellowstone national park, i ended up on some gravel roads in the back-country hills. this scene came up as i made my way up to what would be a surreal experience… further on up i came into this strange hamlet with a few old shacks and trucks. there was an eerie silence as the sun was going down – most memorable was the rather large man sitting on his stoop, staring at me as i drove by… i was definitely far away from home!

the sun was going down in the west as i captured this. what you are seeing is the sun’s natural colour reflecting off the trees on this sepia-toned image.

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.

moonrise silhouette 1, 2 & 3

Moonrise Silhouette 1

Moonrise Silhouette 2

Moonrise Silhouette 3

in keeping with the previous lunar post, here is a series of moon shots from the diego martin valley in trinidad and tobago once again. i set up in the driveway, at the front of the house and waited for the moon to make its appearance, silhouetting the trees on the mountain. unlike the previous post, these images did not require too much editing – pretty well straight out of the camera.

moon over the valley

Moon Over The Valley - Diego martin, Trinidad and Tobago

a captivating moon is always fun to photograph and i have done so many times over the years. this one however is special… this scene was photographed on one of our first nights in trinidad.  i had not gotten used to my surroundings yet, but I was indeed aware that we lived in the diego martin valley just north west of the capital city, port-of-spain.

we are fortunate that our door and front windows lend views to some pretty imposing mountains. on this night, a full moon with wafting clouds lends a mystical, magical and perhaps even eerie feel to our view.

a fair amount of editing was needed to pull this one off. some will call it trickery; i much prefer artistic license…
