Strait of Georgia, BC, Canada – While taking the ferry to Victoria I saw this and thought “isn’t it funny how clouds can mimic mountains”. In this shot we have a variety of cloud types layered one on top of the other. The mountains beneath pale in contrast to the clouds above them. Captured on a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.
Oakville, ON, Canada – About a week after Hurricane Ivan struck we were blessed with an absolutely unique sky. The clouds were arranged in long sweeping rows. As the sunset, this created a very colourful and vibrant sky. I scrambled to get to a clearing and fire off a few shots. Captured with a Kodak 6490 with a 28mm lens.
Gold Coast, QLD, Australia – While hiking around the Gold Coast, more specifically Surfers Paradise we came across this Bearded Dragon. He seemed to be comfortable with our presence and continued to soak up the sun. When we approached for a closer look, he looked at us as if saying “you looking at me?”, and held his stare and position. Captured on Kodak 6490 with a 28mm lens.
Arrowhead Provincial Park, ON, Canada – Upon arriving at Arrowhead we decied to walk over to Mayflower Lake. What we found was a perfectly still lake creating a near perfect beautiful reflection of the small island in it’s middle. When I zoomed in with the camera the result was almost abstract. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.
Miami, FL, USA – We used to seeing sandcastles during the day but rarely at night. On a walk along South Miami beach one night we came across what from the distance looked like a small fire. When we approached we saw this sandcastle dramatically lit by small candles embedded in the sand. Captured with a Kodak 6490 using a 28mm lens.
Massasauga Provincial Park, ON, Canada – After a day of portaging we settled in on a rocky outcrop. The paddles almost feel as if they glow as their shiny coats reflect the light of the nearby campfire. The image illustrates well the sense of isolation and solitude achieved through such remote excursions. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 17-40mm lens.
Fraser Island, QLD, Australia – Sand and ocean for miles. On this island, there are no roads. Planes and cars alike use the beach as their corridor to get things and people in and out of Fraser Island. This World Heritage site is quite unique, with trees and ferns of gigantic proportions. Captured with a Nikon F3 using a 50mm lens.
Arrowhead Provincial Park, ON, Canada – It’s funny how our eyes find common shapes and patterns so quickly. While taking this picture I came across an angle that quickly transformed this long exposure waterfall into something more. The silhouette of what appears to be a person’s face emerges from beneath the rushing water. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.
Oakville, ON, Canada – When looking for a subject willing to be photographed, I find seagulls to be pretty loyal to the task. All it takes is some french fries. They will come to wherever you are and find a spot to observe you from. As long as you stay there with fries they will stay there and wait. Then it’s simply a matter of point and shoot. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 70-300mm lens.
