2019-06-03: Monochrome Monday

I’ve just got a single image today as I try to ease my way back into editing, posting etc. etc. after holidays.

I took along my tripod and my new infrared filter, and played around a bit during the down time in the middle of the day.  This was taken from the back deck of my room at Lion Sands River Lodge.  There were often nyalas grazing in the tall grass, but here, just a few trees and the river in the background.

Have a great week everyone!

2016-02-16: Artistic Impressions

A couple weeks back, I edited an owl photo with an artistic edge, turning it into something more like a painting than a photograph.  (You can see here if you missed it).   Now I know that’s not to everyone’s tastes, but I found it a really fun process, something that I would like to play around with once in a while.

I don’t know how often you’ll see the Artistic Impressions post title, but when you do, you know it will be something a bit out of the box.

I hope you enjoy my artistic impressions!

2016-02-14: What I’ve seen this week

I managed to get out shooting yesterday with a few people from the photography group I belong to.  I went without expectations, only with the hope of putting the Tamron through it’s paces, as it is finally back from its second trip to service (and I must say, it seems to be focusing better than when I bought it, so fingers crossed the issues are resolved).  I also took out my new camera, a Panasonic FZ1000, to start learning how to use it, and again, so far so good (and SO lightweight!!!).

I’ve not had much time for editing, so I will post a few now, and a few more photos through the week.

Have a great week everyone 🙂

A birth tree with a bare midriff. Whether people picked away at the bark, or animals or birds did, I don’t know.
20160214_What I've seen this week-8
Moss, lichen, fungus and peeling bark; a whole lot of texture on one small tree trunk.  And all that green!  I’m really enjoying it after all the snow I’ve been looking at for months.  There’s still a fair bit on the ground, but it recess a bit each day.
20160214_What I've seen this week-7
I liked this photo for a couple reasons.  First, the spring buds!  I was surprised to see those.  Second, the repeating triangle shapes created by both the live and broken branches.

I’ve been seen this plant everywhere lately, I have no idea what it is, but I like the texture and detail.

Yesterday afternoon there were 3 leaves clinging to the top of this tree.  After the snowfall this morning, only a lone leaf remains.   Autumn is quickly giving way to winter. 1/1000sec, f5.6, ISO500

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Older Than 50 Years

I didn’t think I would be entering any photos for this challenge, as I couldn’t think of any subject to photograph.  Then, a couple weekends ago, I signed up to go for a hike to Ancient Forest.  We had a beautiful day for a hike in the forest, and lucky for me, a member of one of the local hiking groups accompanied the group I was with, to give a talk about the area.

Certainly if you are in the Prince George area it is a beautiful place to visit, and a very unique ecosystem in the region.  Some of the cedars in the forest were in excess of 5 metres in diameter and over 2,000 years old.

CEE’S BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE: OLDER THAN 50 YEARS

Dead Vlei

Dead Vlei was a place of amazing beauty.  The colours were so intense, the landscape so surreal; a photo can't really do it justice, but it's all I've got until I have the chance to go back someday.  You can be certain you'll see a few more photos from this gorgeous place.
