Well hello this weeks blog will be at introduction to A new folder that I am starting on the website. It's all on something that I do a lot of, but don't show too many, capturing reflections. One of those things we Landscape photographers seem to gravitate to. I no different for the rest of the guys and gals out there, I love reflections, be they reflections of mountains, clouds, buildings, trees, it just doesn't matter.

 

First image I will talk about: Balance, it's the latest image I have taken. I took it in a quest of a serious storm that never did happen. It's taken on the shores of Lake Isle Alberta Canada one of the many lakes I spent a lot of time around. There's not a lot of good locations this late, but this one I kind of fell into, I remember this is a campsite long-ago. Now the campsite is closed down and nobody visits, but it makes a wonderful place for photographers.

Next photograph: I call it Soft Colours, it is an image of a lake that has a very strange name originally, It was called in times past, Buffalo Chip Lake. Today it is just shortened to Chip Lake. Don't want to anger anybody's gentle sensibilities, So we'll just keep calling it Chip Lake. Quite a large lake but quite shallow, doesn't have a tremendous amount of access as well but I found a few spots, and I'll be going back as I do over and over again. This image is very different for me, it's soft, I actually softened the image. That's not something I normally do but I love the mood that it created.

Soft ColoursSoft ColoursVery odd for me I decided to capture movement and not the absolutely sharp image. As the sun give away its final show I captured 60 seconds of fading light.

All fine Art Landscape and other images are available as art prints in collections and as limited edition signed copies. All canvas prints are all limited edition and signed.

Third photograph is called; Alberta Lake and Sunset, is another review of Lake Isle. The sky was much warmer earlier, And I had a spectacular sunset, but I did is I always do I hung around for another hour. And now I am graced with an image that has such subtle colours, and water of glass the perfect reflector.

This brings us to the last image title: Reflections of Reds. It's a little Lake call Sandy Beach, the lake is more of a sough, that it is a lake. As it's relatively shallow but I was chasing A storm that evening, but I really didn't get any lightning that night so I was looking for someplace to capture the sunset. So I stopped at Sandy Beach, spent some time watching the sunset, and enjoyed the vibrant and brilliant colours mother nature provided me.

So this week I had a interesting little time at an art show in a small town called Stony Plain, I enjoyed it a lot. It’s kind of nice to have people actually coming to see the finished product. For me it was also very nice to get some input on what I am printing, it's very positive that allows me to see what is popular, not so much the images themselves because they're all received praise. More along the lines of the ratios of the prints, Standard 8 x 10 and didn't hold much interest but the one and only Canvas that I had people from across the park coming directly to my booth. The whole day gave me the clues that will provide me direction for the rest of the summer. And what I should continue to create. This canvas wasn't additional print it was a mere 10 inches tall and 40 inches wide, I am sure it was the odd ratios that drew people by. 

 

As you can see I have a interest in the Panoramic this is a good thing for me it enforces are or should I say reinforces, that the panoramic or or the long and thin print is very interesting to peoples eyes. Now the goal for this summer, is to print on find paper, art papers, Panoramas and put them under fine frames for the next show and hopefully there'll be a greater interest.

 

Well that's all for now, next week will do a little more exploration as I'm hoping to get to Jasper National Park, for a day trip and I'm also going to make a point of going to Elk Island National Park tomorrow and we'll see what mother nature has to provide. 

 

Keep on shooting!!! 

Cheers, ciao for now! :-)
