Touch Of Light, BC

A touch of light upon the rocks. I added trees to the foreground. A touch of golden grass. This gave me my foreground to help show the lighting on the mountain top Near Cranbrook, BC

Bull Mountain

I have been plagued with bad weather. Too much mist. The mountains in a haze. But finally it all became clear. Bull Mountain with the Kootney River British Columbia.

Tamarack

The fall colors of the maple and oak are almost gone now. Standing out in contrast with the green of the pines and spruce, the tamarack displays its beauty. The tamarack is also known as larch.

The Algonquian people named this tree tamarack. The meaning, wood used for snowshoes. Its habitat is low lying areas such as swamps,and bogs. The larch is deciduous and the needles turn yellow in autumn.

I photographed this scene in the late afternoon. Sunlight was filtering through the clouds. The side lighting intensified the yellow color of the tamarack. The backdrop of the green spruce helped to allow the tamarack to stand out in the photo.

 

Brown Eyes Crying

 

 

Brown Eyes Crying

Brown eyes crying

In the dark

Drifting forever

On a sea of tears

A long times gone

Just drifting forever

Through endless nights

On a sea of tears

Brown eyes crying

On a sea of tears

Drifting forever

As is the past

Like the mist

Has crept over her

Forlorn and blue

Our love never

Had a chance

It was like a sad song

With never any wrong

A love in a mist

In a sea of tears

We could never exist

In hearts gone cold

Brown eyes crying

In the dark

Drifting forever

On a sea of tears

A long times gone

Just drifting forever

Through endless nights

On a sea of tears

Brown eyes crying

On a sea of tears

Drifting forever

Brown eyes crying

On a sea of tears

Drifting forever

Hotel Room Blues

An interesting morning shot taken on the Montreal River just off Hwy 17. A combination of mist, color and the darker evergreens makes for interesting contrast.

 

Hotel Room Blues

 

I opened the door

To my hotel room

Beer in hand

Feeling the blues

I am all alone

No one to love

 

I don’t know when

The last time I was kissed

Even hugged, for that matter

I am stuck here

In this hotel room

Lonely and blue

 

Sipping on my beer

Feeling the blues

For love just lost

I hang my head

The tears falling

In that hotel room

 

I have asked myself

I don’t know how many times

As to what went wrong

I am now all alone

Without you at my side

It hurts to say

That you are gone

While exploring the shores of Lake Superior, I came across this location that was all rock. I had dark skies to eliminate the blown highlights. There for I was able to shoot straight through the crevice without concurring light problems. The stunted growth at the top of the photo broke up the predominately brownish color of the rocks. Lichen is always a nice addition to the scene being orange. Another magical location found on the shores of Lake Superior.

Well that is it for now. Happy Trails.
