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

Summit Lake

SummitLake

It was a rainy morning off and on. The date September 15 2018. I spent the night in Nakusp British Columbia. My brother was part of the Rocky Mountain Motogiro 2018. I had been asked to photograph the event. Summit Lake was our first stop to photograph the motorcycles passing through.

I captured this beautiful scene in between capturing the Motorcycles passing by.

Hey, Come on Honey

Rose_0496

It’s Saturday night

The clock strikes eight

I got a pocket full of money

I’ll call my honey

Going down to the bar

It’s not too far

I got a pocket full of money

I am walking my honey

I’ll take her hand

Oh, I feel so grand

I can hear the music

I hear them blues

The band strikes up

It is the blues, so slow

Hey, come on babe

We dance, oh so close

We’ll sway our hips

We will touch our lips

We move our feet

I feel the heat

Oh, that feels so good

Just gives me the mood

That slow,slow blues

As the band plays on

Ah yeah, love you babe

You and the blues

That is the way

It should be

The clock strikes four

It is late, the hour

I will walk you home

Oh what a blues night

Hey. come on honey

It’s Saturday night

The clock strikes eight

I got a pocket full of money

I’ll call my honey

Going down to the bar

It’s not too far

I got a pocket full of money

I am walking my honey

Late Fall

Hunting_0006

The Fall of each year brings out the muted earth colors of the vegetation in the north country. The spectacular display of the Maples and Oaks are mostly finished. The temperatures are getting colder. What is left?

The rich yellows and browns of various grasses growing in swampy areas. Black Spruce is common in wet areas. Therefore giving you green color in the low light of afternoon.  spectacular, no. Just a nice soft blend of color pleasing to the eye.

Tamarack

 

Hunting_0011

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.
