Pre Dawn Light 2

Pre Dawn Light 2

 

This is a new edit of one of the first pictures that I had large printed back in the 1980’s. I had an inter-negative shot on 4”x5” film and printed on 16”x20” paper. The photo finisher had control of the final look of the print. I could request changes after it was printed. I had done my own black and white printing but had not mastered colour printing.

Now when I’m ready to have the image printed, I’ve already taken control of how I want the image to appear.

Nikon FM, Tamron 70-210mm, Manfrotto 055, Agfachrome, Epson V600 scanner, Adobe Photoshop CC, Nik Color Efex Pro

Mt. Ogden In The Mist

Mt. Ogden In The Mist

 

The fall brings bright colors to the foliage and interesting weather. The clouds and fog roll in on Mt Ogden on the right, but I know, up the valley lies Takkakaw Falls and the road usually closes in October, and another summer has passed without a trip up the valley, through the switch backed roads and up the side of the mountain to Canada’s second highest waterfall. More planning for next year.

Sandhill Shadows

The original image is in colour, but I didn’t want to take away from the lines and shadows. I liked how the shadow mirrored the top of the dune.

Hidden Falls

Hidden Falls

 

On one of my hikes in Banff National Park, back in the 1980’s, I came across this little gem of a waterfall. In the days before GPS and EXIF data, the location was lost, but the image remains.

A Tree Dies In The Forest

A Tree Dies In The Forest

 

On a foggy morning in the Cypress Hills, we were wandering through the forest. I came across this fallen aspen tree. The triangular shape was repeated behind it in the spruce tree.
