A Walk In The Woods

Walk In The Woods

 

Back when I did more regular work, I took more time off to go hiking and such. Most of the time I took my camera with me, usually loaded with Kodachrome. I don’t exactly remember where this was taken, but most likely was somewhere in Banff National Park. There are a great number of trails that are great for day hikes in the park.

Red Streak

The predawn light was still pretty dim, and the train engine had it’s headlights on. The shutter speed had to be quite slow at 2.5 seconds. The camera was panned with the movement of the train for a feeling of movement, with the trees and bushes turning into a green blur.

Hillside Shadows

Hillside Shadows

I love to watch the light play on the landscape as I drive through it. Seeing the clean snow on the hillside with the long evergreen shadows, really caught my attention. The clouds nicely framed the scene.

Down The Road

Down The Road

Sometimes a drive in the country is just good for your soul, sometimes it’s good for photography, and on a good day it is both. It helps if you time your drive for the changing light in the early morning or in this case in the late afternoon. With the angle of the sun, I knew there would be a blown out portion of the sky. I thought it might be balanced by the dark woods on the right. I was hoping the road would lead you eye into the distance.

Like I’ve said before, you don’t have to go far to get great pictures. This shot was taken about 5 or 6 miles from the house.

The Face Of The Yam

The Face Of Yam

I go past Mount Yamnuska every week. Driving by on the highway, there usually isn’t a good place to stop and shoot. Often the weather is drab or the light is weak, when the light is good, the sky is clear. So, I’m really happy when the light is good and there are some clouds to shoot against, to make a nicer background.

The official name of the mountain is Mount John Laurie, but it’s be long known as Mount Yamnuska, nicknamed “The Yam” by many hikers and climbers.
