Prairie Sunset

One of the beautiful things about living on the prairies is the magnificent views available if you just get out of town. Sunset is often a spectacular time of day.

When driving somewhere, I often take a cross country route, taking secondary highways and even some gravel roads. It takes longer because I drive slower but I see more and if I leave earlier, I have time to stop and take pictures. I saw this tree and knew that I had to stop and make a photograph. It made me wonder how long it had been there and what it took for it to survive. I think that there is a small dugout behind, hidden by the limbs. Close enough to the water hole to drink in and escape the plow. I think the lesson that I learned here was, that perseverance will get you farther in the end.

While we were out shovelling snow, our friend and neighbour came over to help. While I was set up from the picture of Sherri from the last post, I convinced Lesley to get her picture taken too. She had been working hard and still had snow on her hat.

Dave Brosha has a new project photographing his family. He challenged everyone to do their own family project. I started with the easiest for me to do, my wife Sherri. We were out clearing out the snow from the sidewalks and I stopped and grabbed my camera, flash and a reflector. #‎thefamilyproject‬

This week is all Meg. I met Meg Christine Queen at Dave Brosha’s Creative Bootcamp 2014 Calgary. I had a few sessions with Meg as our model and here are some of the results.
