Castle Shadows

Castle Shadows

 

A few hours after sunrise and the sun peeks through an opening in the clouds. The light rakes a path across the face of the mountain, which was dusted with a light snowfall from the night before. The foreground trees are still below the snow level this early in the season.

Into The Sun

Into The Sun

 

Time to get the sunglasses out, with the sun staring down the road right at you. The low angle of the rays are lighting the clouds from the bottom and the distant clouds are casting a shadow on the nearer upper sky.

Evening Light

I have a fascination with skies and clouds that a sunrise or sunset makes more intense. I love to watch what happens to the light when it moves across the sky instead of coming down on you. The color and richness of the light intensifies at the edges of the day.

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.

Autumn Storm

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.
