My good friend Doug Williamson invited me up to Gull Lake this afternoon and we enjoyed a walk along the lakeshore and through some of the woods along the shore. The browns and gold colours in the grasses along the shore were amazing and the green grass being backlit was almost like someone had plugged the grass into an electrical socket! The wind was howling and so I decided to use this to my advantage and try and show some movement. I’ve noticed that when using long exposures the saturation of the things moving is raised substantially almost like when using a polarizing filter to good effect.

  1. These pictures are truly gorgeous! The vibrancy is amazing! I remember living in Alberta some 15, 12 years ago. Is the air still as fresh up there as was such a while ago?

    • Hi StNeisha,

      Thank you, and yes the air is great most of the time. Today though, it smelled a bit like maybe there is a forest fire somewhere and the smoke is drifting our way.

      • So’s the way of nature. Hopefully this supposed forest fire was natural or just someone smoking up the fireplace, though. Still a nice smell isn’t it? Anyway. Happy Thanks Giving! Enjoy your weekend 🙂
