Caterpillar

Caterpillar

 

Everyone knows the familiar yellow construction equipment. This was the original Caterpillar logo. It was used from 1925 to 1931 and I suppose represents a creepy crawler.

Building A Head Of Steam

Build A Head Of Steam

 

These old steam tractors are some of my favourite pieces of machinery. Standing next to one you can feel the power and the potential. I wanted to make the motion of the piston and flywheel visible, so I used a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second to get just a little bit of blur in the moving parts while keeping the boiler sharp on a handheld shot. I hadn’t noticed the dust spots on the lens and didn’t want to try to clean them all up, so I decided to leave them in and go for a more old timey image.

Old Canadian Kenworth

Old Canadian KW

 

I’m not sure the exact year of this old Kenworth truck but I would place it from the 1960’s. Unfortunately he was just leaving as I showed up. The cue that you can’t see is the narrow grille. Some that you can see are the butterfly opening hood and the integrated fender fuel tank.

Columbia Sunset

Columbia Sunset

 

The Trans-Canada Highway runs along side the Columbia River west of Golden, BC. One evening I saw the golden light of the sunset reflecting off of the surface of the river, and the crepuscular rays were streaming out from under the cloud. Perfect for a simple click.

The highway crosses to the other side of the river a few miles west of here. The river swings to the north and back down around Rogers Pass. The road used to follow the river on the Big Bend Highway before the road through Rogers Pass was constructed. The river comes down through the Mica Dam past Revelstoke, where the Trans-Canada crosses for the Columbia for the final time before the river’s journey to the United States.

The Other Side Of The Sisters

The Other Side Of The Sisters

 

Not my usual view of the Three Sisters at Canmore, Alberta. I liked the crepuscular rays coming over the mountains.
