A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to wander along Ebeling Beach and through Brewers Campground at the south end of Gull Lake, Alberta. The whole area is called Aspen Beach Provincial Park, and at this time of fall there is little to no activity. A few locals were walking with their dogs, but otherwise it was very quite. It was very enjoyable to wander around and enjoy the beautiful fall colours, and as it got closer to sunset a small strip of open sky appeared along the western horizon, so I knew we were in for some great sunset colour, although looking at the size of the clear sky it would only last a very short time. I had a couple of rolls of film and my Leica M3 along with a tripod as I was pretty sure the exposures would end up being rather long and impossible for handheld photography after the sun set. So, with one camera and one lens, I got busy making images.

    • Thank you Charles. I am very glad you enjoy the series. I made the images with the intention of a series as opposed to single images. I haven’t done much photography with that intention, and really had fun with it. Film certainly has a different look to it. The transition into pure white is more gradual and feels more natural. Digital tends to “burn out” a lot quicker.
