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

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.

Windswept, The Burmis Tree

Windswept, The Burmis Tree

 

Purportedly the most photographed tree in Alberta. This shot was taken in the late 1980’s is a side view of the famous  tree. It shows the directionality of the branches, forced to point east by the strong westerly winds.

Earlier this year, I posted what would be considered a frontal view. http://wp.me/pPCqa-Ya

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.

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.
