Best Of Twenty Fifteen

My best, In the order that they were taken. I did a lot of post processing on older images, which I did not include. Only images shot in the last year are being shown.

Sherri In The Snow

January 6 – Sherri In The Snow – After shovelling snow off of our sidewalks, I ran in the house to grab my camera and flash to take this shot of my wife Sherri.

Sky Waves

March 24 – Sky Waves – Heading north out of Ft. Providence, NWT, I noticed these strange clouds and quickly grabbed a shot.

Ahead Of The Crowd

May 9 – Ahead Of The Crowd – There is always a wealth of photo opportunities for automobile aficionados at the Didsbury Show and Shine. I often take a snap of a sign or other owner provided info on a vehicle, to correctly identify it later. I didn’t have any ID on this car and had to do an extensive search on the internet to determine that this was a 1937 Pontiac.

Iris Garden

May 23 – Iris Garden – Flowers are great subjects and for me, backlighting only improves them. Blooms were in abundance at the Reader Rock Garden. Located across from the Stampede Grounds, it’s one of the lesser known inner-city parks.

The Lions Sleep Tonight

May 23 – The Lions Sleep Tonight – Later that same night, we relocated to Crescent Road where I shot this great view of the Centre Street Bridge and it’s iconic Lions

To The Horizon

September 25 – To The Horizon – Harvest time in Central Alberta near Trochu. A John Deere combine works the field. By it’s position near the top of a rise, the main body of the harvester is shown above the horizon, as is the dust cloud trailing behind.

Gudrun

October 3 – Gudrun – On Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk our leader, my friend Gudrun showed us through the Calgary community of Bridgeland.  We stopped for a moment and I took the opportunity to make this impromptu portrait.

Remember

October 17 – Remember – Another photowalk, this time hosted by my friend Neil Zeller. We started out at the Peace Bridge and worked our way down to Poppy Plaza, where I captured this image.

Simmons Building

December 8 – Simmons Building – In the city for an appointment and a gallery opening later, we had a couple of hours between. I decided to head over to the East Village to scout about. I saw the old painted on signage and had to get a shot.

Aurora And Moonset Over Carstairs

December 20 – Aurora And Moonset Over Carstairs – I was just getting ready for bed when I checked the Aurora forecast. It looked good, really good, so I went out. Not much was happening when I got, away from the street lights. Not much happened the first hour and I thought I got skunked, but decided to wait. Am I glad that I did, the next two hours were amazing but by 3 AM I had to turn in, even though it was still going on.

These were what I chose to be my best from 2015. I hope you enjoyed them.

The Old Firehall

The Old Firehall

 

Although I’m still posting images for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, and will be for a bit longer, the posts this week are all images which include fellow participants of the Calgary, Kensington walk.

The City has turned the area at 10th Street and Memorial Drive NW into something called Poppy Plaza. It seems fitting with the ideas of a memorial on Memorial Drive. They have created a open and usable public space on both sides of the north side of the Louise Bridge, with a walkway under the bridge. The old Fire Hall was converted into a City of Calgary Parks building.

One of the  photo walk participants was sitting at the top of the stairs looking for a new shot. I liked the warm light on the back of the brick building and all of the leading lines.
