Vulcan County Fields 3 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

Please view LARGE here: http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/BlackandWhiteGallery/i-DrvKqsw/A

I spent 3 incredible days in the Alberta prairies and backcountry in early September. My good Bud +Kris Schofield was kind enough to put me up and drive me around and show me the stark beauty of Alberta. I finally got to meet +Olivier Du Tré, which was a lot of fun too. Thanks again for your hospitality guys, it was a real treat for me!!

I fell in love with the gorgeous textures and big skies of the prairies. It really resonated with me and I look forward to going back.

This image was created in Vulcan County on a cold, wet and windy evening.

This is my offering for #minimalmonday curated by Mr. Minima,l +Olivier Du Tré

Very cool to be included in volume three of this amazing Plus One Collection project for such a positive initiative. Thanks a million +Ivan Makarov, +Andy Lee and team. Please donate to this worthy cause provided on the link I have shared and let's get this moving.
 
Announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in Plus One Collection print book

And now what many of you have been waiting for - announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in the print book #PlusOneCollectionIII  

Link -> http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Plus-One-Collection-III-List-o (Tip: use CTRL+F to see if your name is there to save time)

It's always a hard task to pick the photos because there are so many amazing ones that we just can't include because we have limited space in the book. Any judge can testify to you of that. We had seven capable judges this time around who went through every submission and we picked the best 285 or so for the book based on the final rankings. 

But what we decided to do to compensate for this is to release a poster that will have everyone's submission posted. You can order that poster on Indiegogo page as well - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

As with the book, all net proceeds from the sale of the poster will go to Saving Eliza fund. 

What's next? Keep spreading the word about the fundraising campaign! We still need to raise $25,000 before the book can go to press. And if you can contribute, please do.

The East coast of England sure does offer an endless variety of minimalist subjects. Sheringham in Norfolk is no exception.

This image was also created in color, largely thanks to the amazing and color neutral #firecrest filter made by +Formatt-Hitech +Rod Clark and his team are turning the world of filters on its head!!

Hi +Stephen Cairns. Thanks for the wonderful and detailed feedback, as always...I really appreciate it. You're right, I have been waiting a long time between sharing images. I have so any images I would still like to share, but often feel unsure if they are good enough, as I'm hyper critical of my own work. I will endeavor to speed up how often I post my work. Have a great week and thanks again.

Story
Tagline
http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com
Introduction
Grant Murray was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and moved to the United Kingdom to further his IT career in 2001. He developed an interest in photography after buying his first digital SLR camera in 2004. Trips to his native South Africa, the north Norfolk coast in England and the discovery of a new love, Canada, helped Grant develop his passion for recording the beauty of nature which often found expression in vivid seascapes taken at sunrise and sunset. In 2010 Grant settled in Vancouver, Canada, where he started his business, Create with Light Photography, and where he continues to follow his art. In his latest work he reveals the Vancouver coastline as a place of still waters and restless skies. He hints at the latent drama in tranquil spaces and rejoices in the beauty of the west coast light.
