Lone Pine

Lone Pine

I was hoping for a nice reflection of the tree in the water but the wind rippled the surface of the lake. The blue of Emerald Lake shows up nicely in the ripples, whereas the yellow in the slope reflects in the the calmer portion.

Rundle Reflection

Instead of going for the usual grand landscape with the mountain and the sky, I concentrated on the reflection in Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park. I liked the way that the cloud hung in the sky and was mirrored in the still water. The bit of color from the sunrise accents the triangles formed by the upside down peaks.

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.

On A Wintry Morn

Across The River

An overcast sunrise is harder to shoot than a spectacular one. A blazing sky filled with vivid colors is easy pickings. On a grey day you have to be more thoughtful about your shots.
