S-Curves

In photography, s-curves in a composition are pleasing to the eye. Not sure if this picture applies. When I was driving down the road from taking my previous post’s picture, I notice this little guy sunning himself (herself?) on the road. The sun was behind the snake making for a neat effect. I put the picture in B&W since there was very little color because of the backlighting. I don’t normally like snake pictures but I just liked the shape that it was laying in and that it was looking right at me. I had to be quick with the camera because snakes don’t normally stick around to pose for pictures:)

Fall Colour

This is a familiar spot for me. It’s a place I go back to at least every fall even though I’ve shot it many many times. I just happened to be there in time to catch this tree in full colour. Was a beautiful day to get out.IMG_3498-1

Ashnola River

My buddy Brandt and I took a drive up the Ashnola River which is just outside of Keromeos BC. It turned out to be a bit of a rainy day in that valley but that proved to be great conditions to shoot this river in the fall. The slippery rocks made it quite challenging to get set up for the shot without losing our footing. Here are 3 shots that turned out.

Still Flying

I’ve learned that even if you disturb a dragonfly, it’ll usually fly around for a few seconds and come back to the same spot again and again. This one did just so and gave me some time to try to nail focus on some up-close shots. When you’re trying to shoot something up close that is so small (especially when it’s a little breezy), focus can be challenging. Anyways, this dragonfly was still flying around despite missing half a wing.

Poppy Patch

My favourite poppy patch is finally coming to life after a wet spring. I love photographing this patch each year. You never get the same shot twice. Click on an image to see them in larger format.

Bird Watching Tower

Last night I drove out to Vaseux Lake and took a walk along a little boardwalk which meanders through a marsh area in a wildlife sanctuary. At the end of this boardwalk they have built a new birding lookout tower which is quite nice. They have several levels where you can look out over the marsh and lake. I spent about an hour there with my camera just enjoying the peace of a lovely evening. IMG_2528-Edit-1

Winter Fruit

Snowed last night. Went out for a little drive this morning and spotted apples still left on the trees from the fall. Winter seems to be a time when you need to look harder for pictures. I like how this one turned out. img_1885-1
