Cattle Skull Gate

This shot was taken near the entrance to the Saskatoon Berry Farm in Okotoks, Alberta. It’s one of those iconic symbols of the west. I added some texture to change it up.

Today I am sending you all a Post Card from Violet Hill! Between Shelburne and Alliston Ontario you will find the little hamlet of Violet Hill and these abandoned fuel pumps. I passed by several of these on our travels this summer and each time I thought I should stop and turn around to take a shot but then didn’t. This time I listened to myself and got the shot.


The Footbridge on the Health Valley Trail

This footbridge can be found on the Health Valley Trail that meanders its way along the Conestogo River between the villages of St. Jacobs and Conestogo. It is a beautiful and relaxing spot!

The effect applied to this photo is a result of multiple process from HDR to texture blending. I just kept experimenting with it until I got a look I liked.
