4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (Day 3)

On this day I had planned on waking up for sunrise at Red Rock Coulee. But after shooting and driving for over 19.5 hours and going to bed around 1:30 am, my body was too tired to wake up for my alarms I had set on my phone. I think I finally woke up around […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 8)

I will close out the Red Rock Coulee Natural Area photos (for now) with this shot.  Taken only ten minutes after “Sunstar” and facing the opposite way, the reds really show as the last rays of sunlight hit the rocks. The pinks in the clouds lasted for only a few minutes as I managed to […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 7)

Sorry for the delay between posts folks! I’ve been really busy working 10 hour days and then taking off to different places for the weekends. This last weekend my girlfriend Anna and I were in Golden, whitewater rafting, zip-lining  and camping. Actually got a few good shots at Vermillion Lakes of Mount Rundle on the Saturday […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 6)

This shot was taken about 15 minutes after “Upside Down” turned 180 degrees away from those clouds I was so interested in. While snapping photos of this rock, the clouds would cover the sun, then move and shine on the rock in the foreground. It was like a light switch, constantly on, then off then […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 5)

Continuing on with my trip through southern Alberta, I reached Red Rock Coulee at around 4pm. The drive to get here was mostly highway except the last 1.5km, which was a mix of mud and gravel. For a semi-arid climate, it sure was wet out there. Everywhere I stepped was so slippery and my boots […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 4)

The second version I promised. Same spot as “Stuck Here” just moved in to get the two rocks in the frame. This was a 2 shot vertical stitch, cropped to 1:1. I always like posting two different variations of the same area with just a little twist. Buy the print here.

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 3)

So driving east a little farther from where “Through Time” was shot, I noticed something in the field out of the corner of my eye. Slowed down, turned around and went back. The thing my eye caught were these rocks in the field. I really liked the moody clouds and these rocks that have been […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta (part 2)

A long exposure shot of a house that has been exposed to the elements for some time. First “test shot” with the Lee 10 stop “Big Stopper” Exposure time was a little over 90 seconds in the middle of the afternoon. If I shot this again I would probably have gone for an even longer […]

4 Day Trip to Southern Alberta

My dog (Roxy) and I went out exploring southern Alberta last weekend and here is the first of many images to be taken while on the trip. This is Horsethief Canyon near Drumheller, Alberta. I arrived here late at night and searched around for compositions but couldn’t really do much in the dark. Camped out […]

Brush Hills

Was out exploring north of Vegreville with Anna yesterday where a community by the name of Brush Hills used to be. I figure the settlement was abandoned between 1950-1975. Hard to know for sure because I can’t find any information about this place. Will try the Vegreville Museum to see if they can come up […]
