When we explored Gibson BC we headed to the beach to explore. My niece April and I sauntered along slowly enjoying the sun and smell of the Pacific Ocean.
It was late afternoon. I looked at the rock formation and plant life to be found at the end of the beach. There was very strong lighting here causing problems. I used the tree branches to help block the sunlight as much as possible. But I managed to capture the lighting highlighting some of the structure to make the scene more interesting.Green and yellow are the dominating colors here.
Beautiful Lake Minnewanka. In Banff National Park, Alberta.
The mountains in the background. Rocky shoreline. A point of land with color. This allowed me to create this composition. The photo had originally been posted in color.
The winds were blowing out the North yesterday at a brisk pace. The town of Jinotega, Nicaragua is nestled down in a valley surrounded by the mountains. This event occurred on the Eastern side of Jinotega on the mountain slopes.
It is a common practice that occurs every year in March to set fires to burn the vegetation. It is a very dry time of year as you can see by the color of the grass. No homes were burnt.
AS a photo opportunity I saw some potential. Grabbing my camera I headed to a small hill. Jinotega is infested with wires crisscrossing the streets. So being on the hill eliminated that problem. There is a gully running the side of the mountain here that gave some depth and a focal point. Three trees surrounded by smoke and fire on the edge of the gully add to the element of this composition. Then I added a few casa at the bottom to present a sense of danger. Will the wind shift to the East and send the fire roaring through the homes
This composition was a creation from the South end of Bow Lake. You can see what I believe is a glacier. My brother will correct me on that. But what ever it is it sure stands out.
Bob and I drove to Marysville, BC to photograph a small waterfalls. It is located on Mark Creek. It is just a short walk on a boardwalk path. Marysville Falls is a 30 meter waterfalls.
We did not spend much time here. The rain came, so I quickly captured the above scene.
Coldwater Bay is part of the Lake Superior Coastal Trail. The bay is located within Lake Superior Provincial Park.
