Spirit Island

Spirit Island

Spirit Island

Spirit Island on Maligne Lake is an iconic symbol of the Canadian Rockies. We took a photo boat tour to the island which gave us over an hour to explore and take pictures. I took this with my iPhone. Can’t wait to get my pictures on the computer and start processing. Sunday we head back home to reality😕

St. Albert Grain Elevators

This week I am at a gift fair in Edmonton Alberta. In the evening we go out taking pictures in the area. This is in St. Albert just north of Edmonton. The sun lined up just nicely with the tracks.

This was shot with my iPhone 4s. Edited in snapseed.


Hill Top Horses

We were on our way home from church today and spotted these two on the crest of a hill enjoying the view.

Despite the chaos going on in the world today scenes like this give me a sense of peace.

Mennonite Country

Mennonite Country

This is a common site on a Sunday morning in the countryside  around St. Jacobs where I live. St. Jacobs is often referred to as “Mennonite Country”.




Some of my favorite subjects. Rusted metal, textured wood, and peeling paint!
It’s an old latch on a double door of an old shed.

Hoggs & Heifers

Hoggs and Heifers

I shot this in New York City back in 2013. Just one of those things that caught my eye and made me smile.

Window Dressing – before & after

Part of the fun of photography for me is post processing. It allows me to get creative and reproduce what I saw in my mind’s eye when I took the picture.

I don’t usually do this but I thought I would include the before shot in this post as an example.

When I took this shot I loved the colours and the symmetry created by the windows and the curtains. The problem was all the ugly hydro wires. I literally looked past the wires and took the shot knowing I should be able to do something with it in post processing.

For the curious, my tools were Lightroom, Photoshop and ON1

This photo was taken in Toronto – November 2012
