The Steeples

_MG_1764_5422

The evening was getting quite late. I came to a sharp bend in the highway. The mountains were glowing from the setting sun, I quickly set up the camera and tripod. I was able to capture this scene.

Five kilometres in  length,The Steeples form the southern end of the Hughes Range that lies to the east of the Kootenay Valley from east of Columbia Lake to the Bull River that enters the Kootenay at the town of Bull River.

ON Duty

I was walking in a new neighborhood in Jinotega, that I had not been before. The lighting was good during a late afternoon. Rain was threatening. A rather large dog appeared on my left across the street.

The dog appeared quite suddenly, poking its head through a narrow opening in the metal door. There was a lot of vertical lines in the scene. Therefore I created a vertical composition.

Let The Day Be Ours

I know you don’t

Love me

Stay awhile

Enjoy the day

We are just

Two lonely people

Always searching

For that one love

Come

Take my hand

Why don’t you stay

We can enjoy the day

Let this day be ours

We were lovers

So long ago

But got lost in time

So why don’t you stay…

Yesterday, yesterday…

Was so long ago

Tomorrow too far away

Let the day be ours

We could love again

Forget about yesterday

Just enjoy the day

Then maybe tomorrow

Why don’t you

Come home to stay

We will find a way

To share our love

I know you don’t

Love me

Stay awhile

Enjoy the day

Come

Take my hand

Why don’t you stay

We can enjoy the day

Let this day be ours

We are just

Two lonely people

Always searching

For that one love

Through The Mountains

It is summer here in Nicaragua now. But like everywhere else in the world, the weather patterns have been messed up. Lately there has been plenty of rain, bringing cooler temperatures. It has been a week now since I finally made it out for some photographic fun. It was a beautiful warm sunny day. A little late in the morning for the best lighting. The haze was a little annoying to deal with.

It was on a Monday past that I was joined by a good Nica friend. I had secured his services the day before. We topped off his motorcycle with gas. Then away we went cruising through the mountains. It had been many years since I traveled by motorcycle.

I was attracted by a rock knob on the mountain top as shown in the photo. The lush greens of the landscape is long gone. Replaced by parched earth. There is tremendous depth here in the photo. From foreground to background you are given a sense of depth vertically and horizontally. You will see buildings in the left corner of photo. They give you the sense scale to the whole composition. The rock knob is only a portion of my composition, but is there. I allowed the sky to be half of the photo. Thus a sense of overall vastness that are the mountains. In this type of work I want you to envision the feeling of a 3D feel.

I will close now, till next week. So until next week happy trails

Oh So Lonesome

Oh So Lonesome

Have you ever gotten

That feeling, of feeling lonely

Of feeling,oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home

Her love is gone

Her heart turned cold

As cold as a stone

I think I’m in the Arctic

I feel so benumbed

Her angry words frosty

Like the cold North wind

You left me behind

I know I am to blame

I asked for your forgiveness

But you had no mercy

I know we have been

Through troubled waters

She told me, she had no trust

I was like the dust

Blowing in the wind

She had made up her mind

To leave me behind

Have you ever gotten

That feeling, of feeling lonely

Of feeling,oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home

Oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home

Oh so lonesome

In a cold,cold home
