Perched

when driving to the southwestern tip of trinidad, you invariably end up at columbus bay. this is a different spot from the last few photographs… this was taken at the end of the road when passing through the village of icacos. a short walk along the beach and this leafless tree is there in the water… the pelican perched there is an added bonus!

life jackets

Life Jackets

a piece of toronto nostalgia. still in re-explore-the-city-mode; that first summer of my return to my hometown from vancouver (after a 13+ year absence).

i made my way downtown to the toronto islands ferry terminal to reacquaint myself with the city skyline on a beautiful august summer night. as luck would have it, it was like a ghost town this particular evening. the ferry itself was no different… very few people aboard. as i made my way in, i was taken aback by a scene that i had not witnessed in over 25 years! all those orange life jackets stored above… i set up my gear and voila!

tulips

a071-09

newly arrived on the west coast many moons ago, day trips into washington state and exploring the pacific northwest were a regular occurrence. This from my first visit to la conner for the annual tulip festival: a barn in the middle of vast tulip fields – what a sight!

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…
