Last Light At Vermillion

Sunset Over Eagle Mountain

At the end of the day, Dave Brosha both wanted to stay and leave. You can never tell what’s going to happen to the light, but he was flying out of Edmonton and had to drive there that night, and he was my ride back to Cochrane. Well, we stayed until after the sun set. This was one of the last of my frames from the day. Looking west across Vermillion Lakes 3, with the backlighting on the clouds.

This photo is the last that I’m planning to post, of the ones that were taken as part of the Persistent Vision weekend Field Shoot put on by at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park with guest instructor David DuChemin.

Looking back, it was just over a month ago and still fairly fresh in my mind. The experience of a photographic event of this sort should not be minimized. There was a massive amount of learning going on everyday. Even the social events were educational. I met a number of new friends and got together with others, many whom I hadn’t seen in a while. I really want to thank my friends Darwin Wiggett, Samantha Chrysanthou and Catherine Byram from for organizing such a fantastic event. I’m hoping we’ll see more like this in the future.

In the best light…

Looking down instead of looking across a scene, you find different things.


Try Again

Light In The Lake

This was my second attempt at shooting the edge of the ice and the water backlit.


Ice Crusts

Stump In The Ice

As spring slowly approaches, the ice releases it’s grip on our lakes and rivers. Where it can’t stay in open water, it hangs on to the edges and surfaces protruding from the water.
