Mountain Views – Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Today I am sharing a couple of mountain views from a recent trip to the coast. The images are from Banff National Park, with the most recognizable picture being of Castle Mountain.

blog castle mountain_0293 aWe seem to spend a lot of time driving through the mountains, and very little time stopping,  simply due to time restraints. I am getting better at taking the odd forced stop to take in a mountain view here or there. Hopefully now that we are on Daylight Savings Time and the days are getting longer, I will have more opportunity for photography in the mountains on our trips out west.

Photography on the Beach

I haven’t shared any portrait photography on this blog as of late, so I thought it would be nice to post a gallery of some outdoor portraits from the beaches of British Columbia. You can’t beat rocks and driftwood as a background. Such a beautiful location for shooting.

Autumn Close Ups (……..and camera stories)

blog gaetz lake IMG_1188

It seems as if I have been a bit slow at blogging recently. It has been a combination of working on a restoration job, knitting and dyeing madly to complete an order, trip after trip to the cabin to sort out the disintegrating  floor, plus the blogging camera being out of commission due to the “not working” lens. I finally had to make a decision with regards to the camera situation. I had to decide between using the studio cameras, wait it out for the Olympus situation to be sorted out, or buy another camera. I chose to buy another camera (ironically on the same day Olympus decided to repair the lens).

 

In the end I decided to buy another Canon camera to use just for blogging. It might be a little bigger than the Olympus camera was, but I have a ton of glass I can use with it. I also needed to have something reliable, and Canon has been very reliable as cameras for me with my photography business. The images here are from the new camera.

blog gaetz lake IMG_1182These pictures are taken in the Gaetz Lake Sanctuary behind Kerry Wood Nature Centre in Red Deer, Alberta. Many of the images I shot that day have been photographed with a painting in mind. Luckily a few leaves still linger on the trees, while the late afternoon makes for interesting lighting. Hopefully we will have a few more snow-free weeks to be able to enjoy this natural area before having to break out the snowshoes.

Prairie Church

Prairie Church

This  church we pass every time we go to the cabin and return home. Years of passing it, yet it was only last week that we finally stopped to capture this image with a camera.

This image was taken with the Olympus 15mm f8 lens cap pancake lens. It is certainly different shooting with a lens with really no focus and no choice of aperture. The lens is a bit of a novelty, but has been getting a lot of use as I decide if I should completely ditch my incredibly unreliable Olympus system. After all one would expect a lens (the lens I usually use, not the 15mm one that took the picture) to last more than 16 months the first time and 13 months the second time (each lens was purchased NEW!). The system may be small and convenient, but has definitely not been nearly as reliable as my Canon system.
