Badlands and sysconfig

Filed under: Abstract, Nature, Rocks, Travel — collin j örthner @ 2:16 am

My apologies for the delay updating my blog!! Our computer crashed last week beyond the “Blue screen of death”. this one was black and said something about sysconfig and corrupt etc. etc. Not exactly my language of preference! Anyway, I think I’ve managed to retrieve all but my e-mail archives, but we have a good friend in Ken Higgins who is looking after us and is confident in a full recovery. Yeah!!

The images above may look completely crazy for colour and contrast as I worked on them with our laptop. It’s what I have, so it’s what I’ll use. If these are really bad, I’ll rework them and post them again as an example of proper colour calibration on ones computer.

All that said – these images were made last July in Dinosaur Provincial Park near Brooks, Alberta. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which puts it on par with sites like the Taj Mahal, Petra or Kakadu National Park in Australia! It is a fabulous place for a visit! Getting up a 5am was necessary to capture the sunrise and was worth every second of sleep that was lost. Being 36C during the day, all that we did during the heat of the day was relax anyway. I am looking forward to one or two visits again this year again.
