boulder on the trail

Boulder On The Trail

my very first excursion in st. john’s, newfoundland was a visit to signal hill national historic site of canada. i spent a few hours there hiking the north head trail from the top (at the parking lot) to north head at the entrance of st. john’s harbour. it was mid afternoon when i got started; so the light was not ideal for photography. the trail affords fantastic sights of the atlantic ocean – thankfully i was not too late to take in the few icebergs dotting the horizon. also great views of fort amherst and the st. john’s city harbour can be seen from various vantage points.

i elected not to do the entire 1.7km trail, but rather returned back to the top from north head, basically the same way i came. i spotted this boulder and knew there was a photograph there somewhere… the structure in the upper left of the frame is the cabot tower.

sunburst over the three sisters

‘s Sunburst Over The Three Sisters

coastal erosion in southwestern trinidad, at columbus bay, has been occurring for centuries and indeed continues to take its toll at the present time. the captivating stacks there today, commonly referred to as the three sisters, are what is left of the once prominent ancient headlands of this area.

photographed after a dip in the warm waters in late march, here are the three sisters under a wonderful sunburst through the clouds.

crazy arch

Crazy Arch

visible from the plains between billings and bozeman are the crazy mountains of montana. this scene, with the mountains visible beyond the arch, was photographed around big timber, montana just off the i-90 heading westward.

though there is not a definite origin to the name, the most popular story goes that a woman travelling across the plains by wagon went insane. she left her party and was later found near those mountains. hence, the mountains were originally named crazy woman mountains. the name was eventually shortened to crazy mountains.

storm over ‘old faithful’

Storm Over 'Old Faithful'

returning to vancouver from toronto, i opted to drive the whole way back through the northern united states. i spent a day touring yellowstone national park, home of the world-famous old faithful geyser – aptly named so because it erupts at relatively steady intervals.

it had been a splendid early fall day in october as i awaited the next eruption… the sun was progressively disappearing as a storm started to push through. dejected that the weather was changing for my one and only opportunity to photograph this wonder, i half-heartedly started shooting when old faithful finally blew its steam. when it had finished, i returned to the car and kept on my way through the rest of the road back to the campsite.

it would be a couple of weeks before i got my slides back – imagine my surprise when i witnessed the scene as it had been captured – i fell in love with this shot!

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.

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?
