Chasing the Light
I am always looking at how light stikes an object or reflects off it, such as this log and colourful grasses.Other than sunrise and sunsets I like the light of late afternoon with the long shadows.This was taken after 4 p.m. using aperture priority of f 5.6 1/80 second ISO 400
Happened to reach the look-out just as the chickadees were coming to feed. They move so fast! But captured this one using shutter speed of 1/160 of a second with an aperture setting of 5.6 and 800 ISO
Respite in the Woods
Joined some Grant MacEwan students and friends for a workshop in Nature where we went to a spot by ourselves and observed the environment then wrote about it or drew or used a camera. It was great to get outdoors to experience a thoughtful process, fun to meet others, to write what came up for me and of course, take some photos.
Lines and Shapes of Trees
I love trees because of their beauty and the imagined stories that they tell through their twisted limbs and scars on the trunks and branches. I am intrigued by the lines that the limbs make as well as the shapes in the negative spaces.
f4.5 1/800 sec ISO200 camera set on Monochrome Picture style and using aperture priority
City Lights and Reflections
f11 1/10 shutter ISO800
It was a beautiful day and evening as well and I went out to take photos of the city from the water. I see this scene when I come down the hill in the morning on my way to work so I drove to a park this evening and walked out on a bridge to get these shots. The brightest one I used aperture priority and the others I used Shutter priority.
The last two are both f stop 4.5 1/20 sec ISO 800
