Delicate Bloom

Delicate Bloom

 

Wandering through the undergrowth, I happened upon this interesting flower. I liked the purple veins on the petals. By placing the blossom against the shady background I was able to make the bloom stand out. The light that filtered through the trees lit the flower evenly, for a great exposure.

Flowers In The Water

Flowers In Water

 

Having not spent much time in my youth around water, I find water plants interesting. I saw these small white blooms just above the surface of the water, and when I came over to investigate, I noticed that the branches hanging over the water were reflected on the surface. The flowers appeared to be growing off of the branches.

Smoke In The Valley

Smoke In The Valley

 

As the forest fires continue, the smoke continues to flow down the valleys creating some wild looking colours in the skies. In the foothills west of Calgary, visibility is much reduced across the Bow Valley. The sun is muted through the smoke.

The sun breaks through the clouds as I head into the Bow Valley towards Banff National Park. The smoke has been hanging in the air for the last couple weeks, and it creates a layered effect in the mountains.

Red Sunrise At Lac Des Arc

Red Sunrise At Lac Des Arc

 

With the smoke in the area from the forest fires further north, the morning and evening sunlight has been strangely coloured. The cement plant on the left fades to grey as the red light glistens on the ripples in the water.
