Mount Blaine Covered in Snow
Hey all here I am with the new blog style of me telling you the process of the work I do and hopefully shedding some light on my work.
Just a quick announcement; I am changing my locations again. I am heading back to my home of Edmonton this coming week so I maybe not posting for a little while.
It is funny I never thought of Edmonton as my home till I moved from it with the intention of remaining away from it. The realization I would be apart from my boy and my friends didn’t enter the thought pattern until I was away from it. That will be remedied this week so let’s crack on with the story.
We have had a few snowstorms here in southern Alberta the past few weeks and not the best light to capture anything in my interest. I was for the most part uninspired, listless, and bored. Sure, I was out and about every Saturday chasing light, but nothing has really interested me when I got it home.
I was driving the highway though Kananaskis just for something to do. Trying to get my creative juices flowing, when out of the corner of my eye at 90Kms/h a saw a splash of colour in the snow, I had to stop and check it out. I turned about parked Lilly, pulled out the tripod and right there on the roadside I created this image. I captured a few more, as well as a two-meter panoramic that I am working on.
I thought I must make capturing the image was some great adventure, or make it sound like I have some hero status going on. But no, I said to my self, truth in this process is more interesting than some hyped up struggle of creation. I do struggle to create, I even risk life and limb at times, but this time I was overwhelmed with a feeling of apathy. Any visual with colour would have raised the interest.
If you must identify me as the great adventure photographer just say to your self “it was very cold” that should placate the need to elevate my struggle to create.
So, with a fond far thee well to Calgary I say goodbye to Kananaskis for the time being and hello to an area that I am very familiar with. I see aurora nights and big skies with awesome sunsets. I also say hello to Jasper very soon, I have missed you ever so much!
