Abstract Vision

What is your definition of abstract photography? Is it simply photographing something that we don’t recognize? Or perhaps does it need to be blurry for it to be considered abstract?

Blachford Lake Lodge

Blachford Lake Lodge While planning my trip to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, I thought it would be nice to supplement my camping itinerary with a little bit of pampering—after all, we were celebrating our fifth anniversary and wanted to make this trip a little more memorable. After searching online through countless pages of things to do and places […]

The Real Aurora Borealis

This post explains how typical people see the Aurora Borealis. We don’t see the vibrant and bright colours that we always see in photographs, so what exactly do we see out in the field?

 Making lemonade. When I came here well before sunrise, I was surprised to see these two people already here—they were chatting amongst themselves waiting for the sun. But rather than thinking they would ruin my photos for being there, I decided to use them as an extra element of interest in my photos. I positioned the two of them in various ways as they moved around. At one point the two separated and stood still as they watched the sun rise above the horizon.

 Scratching the sky. A 2.5 sec. long exposure by the marina catches this flying object. An airplane usually has breaks within the lights as hey flash. This solid line of light means the light was a constant source.

This warm weather is great for us, but not so great for the fall colours. I doubt we will see any vibrant colours this year as the leaves have started falling already. . Which would you rather have?
