A few months ago I spent some time in the Canadian Rockies shooting and prepping for a fall workshop there. There is the main highway that runs south to north, then there is the side roads that always offer up surpasses. This was taken from a side road east of the rockies.
I spent a few days in the Canadian Rockies a week or so ago and was scouting for locations and hotels for next years PODAS workshop there. There was a lot to shoot. Day one we had blue skies and puffy clouds and a few days after that full force snow storms that left the mountains topped off with snow cover. I’ll pots some more over the coming days.
Well, I just had to go back and shoot a train on Morant’s curve coming from the other direction. Had to wait like an hour for the train to come and then it was moving very fast. But, I managed to get focus set prior to the arrival and then at a certain point I just blasted away. Here is the one I like best. Taken with an Olympus OMD 5. I feel the sky, curve and colors all work well in this shot. Hope you enjoy it.
Sometimes you are shooting a scene or environment that is just made for Black and white. The picture today was just that. Shot on October 2, 2012 in the ice Fields of the Canadian Rockies. The weather was changing every second. Winds, cold, snow. It was so cold my iPhone shut down. Camera kept working though. I shot this image and processed it in Capture One. Capture One has such great features for holding shadow detail and highlight detail. I printed it on the darker side because it matches the true darkness of the time it was shot. Hope you like it.
I have been doing what every photographer should do is going through old images and archive them off to a second drive to be stored elsewhere. Also, I am in the middle of a project for a massive web site change. So, as I am going through my files I am finding tons of old but good shots. Here is one from 2004 shot on a Phase One P25 camera. I love the colors, contrast, birch trees and how it all sits on a very steep hillside.
