I’ve been doing more work in Black and White lately. Some of it is a return to my roots developing and printing my film, without the chemicals, smells and mess; and some due to lively discussions with friends aimed at working a better image. This has been mistaken as a night image but it was shot around lunch time in late November a few years ago. I wanted the dark moodiness and the reappearance of the sun to relieve us from a sombre time.

This image was taken in 2009 on Darwin Wiggett’s Fire & Ice Photo Tour. The location is Graveyard Flats on the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper National Parks.

Graveyard Flats - Banff National Park I was just going through my images trying to finish processing all the shots from 2010 when I came across these images.
