Wind Blown Grass

Wind Blown Grass

 

With the wind blowing down the river on the day of the Worldwide Photo Walk in Calgary, Kensington, it made me wonder how to show the movement from the breeze. So, I set the ISO to the lowest setting and cranked the aperture down to the smallest opening f/22, which gave me a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second. This was enough to catch the grass heads doing the dip.

When outside taking pictures, there’s always something on my mind. That is, keep an eye on the weather. I looked to the east from the Peace Bridge on the Worldwide Photo Walk with Gudrun, shot this frame out the opening. It shows a storm blowing up to the east of Calgary, which , thankfully, kept moving to the southeast.

Shooting from the Peace Bridge, on the recent Worldwide Photo Walk, I noticed that if you stepped back from the opening, the bridge’s structure would frame what you were looking at. So I centered the matching apartment buildings and framed them using the bridge and the autumn foliage below.

I was walking back to the restaurant for the post photo walk get together with the walk leader Gudrun, when we had a chance encounter with Gabriel.

The Worldwide Photo Walk put on by Scott Kelby are usually fun. This year’s Calgary event hosted by Gudrun Schulze Ebbinghoff, was no exception. It was well organized and planned for a nice walk with lots of time to take pictures and talk to people. Gudrun staged the walk for later in the day, specifically to have more interesting light during the walk. It ranged from full, but directional light to sunset, if you wanted to stretch it a bit. The area is quite interesting and I have plenty more to post in the next few weeks.
